L'Wren Scott, a fashion designer and girlfriend of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, was found dead in her Manhattan apartment Monday.

Sources say that Scott sent her assistant a text at 8:30 a.m. Monday telling her to come over.

Sources told NY1 that police found Scott hanging by a scarf, but they did not find a suicide note.

Police would only confirm that they responded to a call at an address in Chelsea.

Scott launched her own label in 2006 and has released a number of collections since then.

A spokesperson for Scott confirmed the death in a statement, which read, "At this devastating time for Ms. Scott's family and friends we request that their privacy be respected."

A spokeswoman for Jagger said that the singer was "completely shocked and devastated by the news.''

L'Wren Scott was 49 years old.
