The Rolling Stones Cancel Australian and New Zealand Tour

L’Wren Scott — Dead at 49
L’Wren was found dead in her New York City apartment, on Monday, March 17. The fashion designer allegedly hanged herself from a scarf on a doorknob in her Chelsea home. She was found unresponsive by her assistant, and the police confirmed to HollywoodLife.com that she was announced dead on arrival, when EMS arrived.
Mick Jagger is completely “devastated” and “shocked” by the news of his longtime girlfriend’s suicide, and was spotted at Coco’s restaurant in Perth, Australia, looking extremely heartbroken, on Tuesday, March 17.
Our hearts go out to all of L’Wren’s loved ones, including longtime boyfriend, Mick Jagger.
