Last Public Statement
Police said that the late Scott left no note or message in her final moments. Scott’s Twitter page was discharged in the wake of her suicide; The last tweet (likely a promotional one) sent from the account Monday — just hours before her body was discovered — read, “today #love #timwalkerphotography #lwrenloves.” Her Facebook and Instagram accounts were subsequently removed in the wake of her death.
L’Wren Scott’s friends were concerned about her behavior in the weeks leading up to her death, as the fashion designer had reportedly been “acting strangely” and was “ducking phone calls”, sparking concern from her pals. A source told the NY Post that confidantes of the famed fashionsista have “known that something was going on, and it’s been going on for at least a week.” One insider spoke of an “incident” in which Scott did harm to herself, while a source told MailOnline.com the “troubled” beauty “suffered from depression.”
Some of Scott’s unhappiness, insiders said, was her relative exclusion from the extended Jagger family despite having dated the legendary rock singer since 2001. In a recent incident those close to the late designer said rubbed her the wrong way, Jagger’s ex Jerry Hall didn’t invite her to a dual baby shower she threw for the rocker’s 42-year-old daughter Jade Jagger and her 21-year-old daughter Assisi, who are both pregnant.
Not all of Jagger clan was estranged from Scott, as his model daughter Georgia, 22, nixed an appearance for Camilla Franks Melbourne Fashion Week to rush to her father’s side. Georgia and Scott had been seen out many times publicly, including in September, when she joined her rocker father at L’Wren’s London Fashion Week show. Her rep said in a statement Monday, “In light of the recent sad news, Georgia May Jagger will not be participating in Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival for the Camilla Grand Showcase. We ask that you respect Ms. Jagger and her family’s privacy at this very difficult time. On behalf of the Festival and the Camilla team we offer our sincere condolences to Ms. Jagger and her family.”
A number of prominent personalities mourned the statuesque fashion pro as news spread of her death. Mindy Kaling called her an “amazing designer,” while Olivia Munn wrote that she was “shocked and saddened by the passing of @lwrenscott … she was an amazing soul, talented artist and an unbelievably giving friend. RIP.” Besides Jagger, the celeb closest associated with Scott was her friend Nicole Kidman, whose rep took to her account to write, ”Nicole and L’Wren were close friends for 25 years. She is heartbroken and in shock right now, and unable to say anything.”
