The death of L’Wren Scott , the fashion designer and long term girlfriend of Rolling Stone Mick Jagger has been officially declared as suicide.
The 49-year-old was found hanged in her luxury Manhattan apartment in New York on Monday.
It is thought mounting debts for her struggling design company may have been the cause.
Although her gowns were popular among the likes of Michelle Obama and Nicole Kidman, the company reported a loss last October of 4.3 million euros.
In a posting on his official website, Jagger, who had dated Scott since 2001 and was in Australia when he received news of her death, spoke of his distress and sorrow.
