    Mick Jagger’s model-turned-designer girlfriend killed herself in her luxurious Manhattan apartment — just weeks after abruptly canceling her London Fashion Week show, sources told The Post on Monday.

    L’Wren Scott’s body was found shortly after 10 a.m. by an assistant to whom she sent a text message around 8:30 a.m. saying, “Come by,” police sources said.

    The assistant used a key to open the door and found the 6-foot-3 Scott hanging from a doorknob with a scarf around her neck, sources said.

    The assistant called 911 and cops responded to the ninth-floor apartment at 200 11th Ave., near 24th Street.

    There was no note and no signs of foul play, sources said.

    Scott, 49, began dating the Rolling Stones’ frontman in 2001, and last year marked his 70th birthday by posting a vintage photo on Instagram of the rocker at age 21, wearing a pair of swim trunks, just before his band hit it big.

    A spokesman for Jagger, currently on tour with the Stones in Australia, said the singer was “completely shocked and devastated” by Scott’s death.

    Scott’s suicide followed the last-minute cancellation of her London Fashion Week show last month, with WWD reporting that she blamed “production delays in key show and couture pieces.”

    But a fashion-industry source said the real reason the show was scrapped was that “L’Wren’s business just crashed.”

    Another fashion source said: “I knew something was wrong when L’Wren canceled her London Fashion Week show. That would have been so important to her. She was very prolific on Instagram and recently had gone quiet and hadn’t been posting so much.”

    A third source added: “Everybody who knows L’Wren and Mick are totally and completely shocked.”

    “Neither of them drink and do drugs, and they were always really affectionate with each other. There were no signs of problems in their relationship,” the source said.

    A friend of Scott’s said she spent Christmas on the Caribbean island of Mustique, where “She was perfectly normal, she was giving out advice.”

    “I’ve never known her to say anything to me like ‘I’m sad,’” the pal noted.

    In addition, Scott recently cut a deal with the French cosmetics company Caudalie, which in October threw a dinner in her honor at The Plaza, where her friend said Scott was “happy as a clam.”

    Records show that Scott’s apartment was bought for $5.6 million in 2010 by a holding company called Scottland Management. A 2012 mortgage for $1.25 million was paid off last year.
