Mick Jagger says he’s still trying to understand why his girlfriend, fashion designer L’Wren Scott – committed suicide on Monday.
The Rolling Stones rocker – who was in Australia on tour when the news broke – wrote on his Facebook page Tuesday morning:
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.
As ENTmania! previously reported, Scott, 47, was found dead in her New York apartment by an assistant, hanging by a scarf tied to a door knob. No suicide note was found, and police do not suspect any foul play for now.
Meanwhile, Rolling Stones have cancelled their tour in Australia and New Zealand in the wake of the tragic death of Scott.
