The girlfriend of rock star Mick Jagger, L'Wren Scott, has been found dead in a Manhattan apartment.  The New York Daily News reports 49-year-old model and designer appears to have killed herself by hanging. 

She was found inside an apartment in the Chelsea section of Manhattan around 10 this morning by her assistant. 

The City Medical Examiner will determine the exact cause of death. 

While Jagger is currently on tour, the Daily Mail reports that a spokesman for the rock star said he was 'completely shocked and devastated' by the heartbreaking news.

Scott and Jagger have been romantically linked together since 2001.

L'Wren was a stylist before breaking out into the design world and launching her first line in 2006. Fans of her work include celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Nicole Kidman, and even First Lady Michelle Obama. She was also reportedly tipped to design a wedding dress for Angelina Jolie.
