A photo of dresses hanging from a tree was posted on fashion designer L'Wren Scott Facebook page, just after the news of her death broke out.

The longtime girlfriend of Mick Jagger was reportedly found hanged inside her eight floor apartment in Manhattan by her assistant.

Fans of the 49-year-old designer were in shock to see the picture, which had strange resemblance to the circumstance's of Scott's death.

However, the image uploaded onto Scott's Facebook page has since been deleted.

According to Mail Online, the reason for Scott's suicide was financial trouble.

"L'Wren was in a lot of financial trouble. She was unable to pay her staff and her suppliers and it had been going on for a very long period of time," a fashion source told the website.

"She wanted so badly for things to be a success. Whereas she got her outfits on a number of high profile people, the clothes were not a commercial hit and didn't fly off the shelves. It was a huge burden on her and she didn't want to fail."

"Everyone was very much left wondering why she didn't ask Mick for help. But she didn't. Things were left a long time and she spent the past few months struggling to pay the vast amount of her outgoings. It was a tragic situation and she kept it from everyone," the source continued.

"Her staff expected the company to go under and her fabric suppliers and tailors were close to ending their working relationship. The bills just weren't getting paid."

Celebrities took to Twitter to share their shock on Scott's suicide.
