Rolling Stones Postpone Tour In Wake of L’WRen Scott Suicide

It has been an understandably rough week for The Rolling Stones, and for Mick Jagger in particular, who is still reeling from the news of the apparent suicide of long-time girlfriend L’Wren Scott. In the wake of the tragedy, the band have announced the postponement of seven shows along their current Australia-New Zealand tour, extending into April.

Scott, a model-turned-stylist for the stars, was found hanged in her Manhattan apartment on Monday. Authorities say no foul play is suspected, and no note was left. She was 49. Scott and Jagger had been a couple since 2001, although their busy career schedules often kept them apart.  Scott arranged the wardrobe for the Stones’ current tour.

Mick Jagger, “shocked and devastated” by the news, responded publicly yesterday with a brief note on his Facebook page:

I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way.

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.

I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received.

I will never forget her,

Mick
