Mick Jagger On L'Wren Scott Suicide: 'I Am Still Struggling To Understand'


Still reeling from the suicide of his longtime girlfriend, fashion designer L'Wren Scott, Mick Jagger broke his silence on Facebook with a heart-wrenching post that expressed his feelings for his "lover and best friend."

The Telegraph reported that Jagger's spokesman is slamming rumours that the couple had broken up prior to her death.

"The story about a split between Mick Jagger and L'Wren Scott is 100 per cent untrue. There is absolutely no basis in fact to this story. It's a horrible and inaccurate piece of gossip during a very tragic time for Mick."

The Rolling Stones have put the brakes on their Australian and New Zealand tour, which was due to begin March 19 in Perth.

They announced on Facebook today:

The Rolling Stones are deeply sorry and disappointed to announce the postponement of the rest of their 14 ON FIRE tour of Australia and New Zealand following the death of L’Wren Scott.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood wish to thank all of their fans for their support at this difficult time and hope that they will fully understand the reason for this announcement.

The Rolling Stones are planning to reschedule these postponed shows at a later date.
