NEW YORK (AP) — L’Wren Scott, a fashion designer and celebrity stylist who was Mick Jagger’s girlfriend, was found dead in Manhattan of a possible suicide.

A New York law enforcement official confirmed Scott’s death anonymously, because her next of kin had not yet been notified.

The official said Scott’s assistant found her hanging from a doorknob at 10 a.m. Monday. The official said no note was found and there was no sign of foul play.

A spokeswoman for Mick Jagger says the singer was “completely shocked and devastated by the news.”

The Utah-born Scott had her own fashion label popular with celebrities. At 6-foot-3, she towered over her boyfriend, Mick Jagger.

Scott founded her high-end label in 2006 and recently created a more affordable line of clothes with Banana Republic.

During her career in fashion, she dressed Nicole Kidman, Oprah Winfrey, Sarah Jessica Parker and Angelina Jolie.

Just last month she canceled her London Fashion Week show, due to what a spokesperson called production delays.
