Inside Rolling Stones Singer Mick Jagger & L'Wren Scott's Love Story That Ended in Tragedy

Mick Jagger and L'Wren Scott's love story might have ended in tragedy, but it had love, respect, a mutual love of fashion, and the more beautiful things of life.

Mick Jagger and L'Wren Scott were together for over a decade. They met on the set of a photoshoot in 2001, where the latter was working as a stylist. They immediately connected over their love of fashion, music, and the more beautiful things of life.

SCOTT'S DEATH SHOCKED EVERYONE

For two years, Jagger and Scott kept their romance a secret, until they got photographed dancing the night away at a Prague nightclub when the rock star turned sixty. 

What followed were years of friendship, support for each other's career, and trips around the world. The two equally shared apartments in Paris and London and life was filled with laughter, and happiness until it wasn't.

Jagger and Scott remained together until the morning of March 17, 2014, when the fashion designer hanged herself with a silk scarf. Her death came as a shock to many, as she didn't have any suicidal tendencies.

JAGGER STRUGGLED TO MAKE SENSE OF IT

However, friends at the dinner party Scott organized a day before noted she looked gloomy unlike her usual vibrant self, but they didn't think she would ever consider killing herself. In a Facebook post at the time, Jagger wrote,

"I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way."

He added, 

"We spent many wonderful years together, and have made a great life for ourselves. She had a great presence, and her talent was admired, not least by me."

A LOVE BEYOND DEATH

The Rolling Stones frontman added that he would never forget, and signed the write-up, "Mick." The singer's words reflected what friends and family thought of the fashion designer, and Nicky Haslam, a friend of the couple, once told People about Jagger and Scott, 

"They scream with laughter at the same things; they like the same food, the same décor, and the same people."

Five years after Scott's death, Jagger is keeping his promise not to forget her. In April, on the day that would have been the deceased's 55th birthday, the rock star shared on Instagram a photo of the fashion designer dressed in a plum sweater and a pink knee-length skirt. He captioned it,

"Happy Birthday, L'Wren."

Scott might be dead, but her legacy of love, kindness, and equality, lives on, and Jagger's love for her extends beyond the grave.
