Mick Jagger says he's ‘strugging to understand’ girlfriend's apparent suicide
The Rolling Stones have postponed the remainder of their tour through Australia and New Zealand, following the death of Mick Jagger‘s girlfriend, designer 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,” a statement announcing the postponement issued Tuesday said.
The group intends to reschedule the seven postponed shows at a later date. The concerts’ promoters are asking ticketholders to hold onto their tickets until further notice.
Scott was found dead of an apparent suicide in her apartment.
Jagger issued his own statement on Scott's death via Facebook on Tuesday, writing that he's “struggling to understand” the situation.
“I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way,” the singer wrote. 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.”
