Police are treating her death as a suicide, although the medical examiner has yet to determine an official cause of death.
A spokesperson for Sir Mick said the singer was 'completely shocked and devastated' by L'Wren Scott's death.
The band is currently on tour in Australia.
Scott, 49, born Luann Bambrough, and Sir Mick began dating in 2001. She began her career as a model in Paris and founded her own fashion label in 2006.
Scott's death comes a month after she cancelled a show at London Fashion Week, saying production delays had left key pieces unready for the show.
