Hey, twitter considers it news:

Fashion designer L'Wren Scott was found dead today in her Manhattan apartment of an apparent suicide, according to New York police. She was 47 years old.

According to authorities, police were called to her Chelsea apartment at 10:05 a.m. and found her body. A medical examiner will determine the cause of death.

Scott was a renowned stylist and fashion designer whose clothes have been worn by A-listers including Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie and Penelope Cruz. In February, she announced that she had canceled her London Fashion Week show.

In addition to her career in fashion, Scott had been romantically linked to Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger for more than a decade.

Jagger is currently on tour with his band, and recently arrived in Australia.

"Looking forward to the first show in Perth," he tweeted just four hours ago.

A spokesperson for Mick Jagger tells ABC News that the singer is completely shocked and devastated by the news.

I'm going to pull an alphabet news network stunt here.

She cancelled her show in London Fashion week. The only more important show is Milan.

She burnt out?

Celebrated fashion designer and girlfriend to Mick Jagger was found hanged to death in an apparent suicide in her Manhattan apartment Monday, police sources said.

The body of L’Wren Scott, 47, was found hanging from a scarf on a doorknob by her assistant at 200 11th Ave. around 10 a.m., sources said.

Scott texted her assistant at 8:30 a.m. and asked that she come over, police sources said. When she arrived, she found the body and called 911.

Police did not suspect foul play, a source said, but the Medical Examiner’s Office will determine a cause of death. No suicide note was found.

The former model met Jagger in 2001.

Scott began her career as a model in Paris shortly after graduating high school in her home state of Utah. She went on to pose for notable brands such as Thierry Mugler and Chanel, before moving to California in the early ‘90s and establishing herself as a sought-after stylist.

Scott also launched her fashion brand in 2006. Sarah Jessica Parker, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman have all worn her gowns to the Academy Awards, while other high-profile names such as Reese Witherspoon, Christina Hendricks, Sandra Bullock and even First Lady Michelle Obama have been seen wearing her designs.

Her work can also be seen on the big-screen: she designed the costumes for 1996’s “Diabolique,” “Ocean’s Thirteen,” “Eyes Wide Shut” and “Shine a Light,” Martin Scorsese’s documentary about The Rolling Stones.

In February, she announced she had canceled her London Fashion Week show.

... The 6-foot-3 brunette began dating the Rolling Stones’ frontman in 2001, and last year marked his 70th birthday by posting a vintage photo on Instagram of the rocker at age 21, wearing a pair of swim trunks, just before his band hit it big.

A spokesman for Mick Jagger, currently on tour in Australia, said the singer was “completely shocked and devastated” by Scott’s death.

The adopted daughter of Mormon parents, she was raised in a small town in Utah as Luann Bambrough.

As a teen, she was discovered by famed fashion photographer Bruce Weber and changed her name to model for Chanel and Thierry Mugler before becoming a stylist for celebrities. ...

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Having it all, living with the rich and famous, about to turn 50.

Takes a bit of determination, but it really is not that difficult.

Tie the scarf to the outside knob, throw it up over the door, then hang from inside the door.  But this chick was 6'3", so I still don't see how she did it.

maybe she was doing that erotic asphyxiation? Didn't they find that actor in a Thailand hotel closet dead a few years ago from that?

That's actually a very reasonable possibility.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Tends to be more men. Different wiring. Not saying women can't but it is unusual.
