L’Wren Scott was a ‘classy, elegant’ designer and stylist, but was going through some depression before she sadly committed suicide, a source who has known her for years told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
After meeting him 13 years ago when styling him for a shoot, L’Wren Scott was absolutely crazy about her boyfriend Mick Jagger. However, while they were still together before she died on March 17, a source close to her told us that he appeared to have been pushing her away.
Mick Jagger & L’Wren Scott Before Suicide: Inside Their Relationship
“She had problems with the business,” a source close to L’Wren, 49, told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “She was a woman of a different age. He was, in a different way, her famous boyfriend who was distancing himself.”
So sad! Mick, 70, had been in Australia at the time of her suicide, with the Rolling Stones.
“She was sad [that] she was in that place — 49, her business ending, her relationship potentially ending,” the source said, adding that she felt “abandoned” by Mick. “It must have felt like a dead end.”
“She was a great stylist, chic and elegant,” our insider continued. “She was all about beauty and refinement and had a meticulous thought process.”
That being said, it was completely shocking that she had decided to take her life in the “violent” way that she did, and raised the thought she could have been trying to send a message. Her assistant found her hanging from a doorknob in her apartment with a scarf around her neck.
Mick Not Sleeping After Tragedy
Regardless of the troubles they may have been going through, Mick is completely distraught since the death and hasn’t been sleeping or speaking much.
“He is totally devastated and just wants to be surrounded by his family. We have never seen him so despondent and are extremely worried about him,” a source close to the singer told the Mirror. “He didn’t sleep after being told the news. How could you? Like anyone, he is wrestling with how it happened and if he could have prevented it.”
Additionally, Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts told MailOnline that he’s not having an easy time.
“He’s holding up. He’s okay,” Charlie said, before sadly admitting, “He’s not really well. He’s not really here. It was such a shock.”
So sad — our thoughts go out to Mick and L’Wren’s family and friends.
