Yesterday, former model, business mogul and designer L’Wren Scott reportedly committed suicide in her New York City apartment. The news broke the afternoon of Monday, March 17 about the tragic loss of the talented fashion maven who also famously dated Rolling Stones‘ lead Mick Jagger for over a decade. She was said to have been millions of dollars in debt and perhaps was motivated by the financial collapse of her fashion empire. Police are still investigating though they have ruled out foul play.
Meantime, as social media has become the new distribution system for statements from public figures, several of our current and past Bellyitch moms also took to Twitter and Instagram to share public words of support to Scott’s family and Jagger.
Among her closest friend was Nicole Kidman who wore Scott’s designs on the red carpet, and in movies like Eyes Wide Shut, reports US Weekly.
“Nicole and L’Wren were close friends for 25 years,” a spokesperson for Kidman told The Insider With Yahoo.
“Nicole is heartbroken and in shock right now and unable to say anything.”
Scott’s death is the latest in a string of high profile suicides and comparable to Alexander McQueen, another notable and talent who also took his life in 2010.
