Unconfirmed reports said Jagger (70) had flown back to New York.

Tributes have poured in for the model (49), as it emerged her British fashion company had been losing millions of pounds.

Accounts filed with Companies House in October show Scott's British company, LS Fashion Ltd, was running at a loss of more than £3.5m in 2012, up from more than £2.5m the previous year.

The documents also show the firm owed more than £1m, despite having assets totalling a similar amount.

Celebrity journalist Ashley Pearson says there's one recent indication something may have been amiss.
