Troubled Lives: 10 Celebrities Who Died From Suicide Hangings [PHOTOS]
A somber cloud hung over New York after reports of the tragic suicide of designer and Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger‘s girlfriend, L’wren Scott by way of hanging began to surface early Tuesday. Scott was discovered in her Chelsea apartment hanging from a doorknob, and was said to be in serious debt.
The grim news shocked many, including Jagger who canceled a performance in Australia and spoke out as reported by CNN. Scott was reportedly $6 million in debt, although by all appearances the popular fashion maven was doing well.
