A New York coroner ruled that the former model had killed herself. 

The Rolling Stones subsequently cancelled a seven-date tour of Australia and New Zealand.

Writing on Facebook at the time, Sir Mick called Scott his ‘lover and best friend’ and said he was struggling to understand why she might have taken her own life.

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

Following news of her death, it emerged her eponymous fashion label had been experiencing financial problems.

The online auction is open now and closes on July 1 at 2pm.
