Mick Jagger - Mick Jagger: 'I Am Struggling To Understand Why L'wren Scott Ended Her Life'

Mick Jagger has broken his silence following the death of his longtime girlfriend, revealing he is struggling to understand why his "lover and best friend" took her life.

The Rolling Stones star was left "devastated" upon hearing the news that 47-year-old designer and stylist L'Wren Scott had been found hanging by a scarf in her Manhattan, New York apartment on Monday (17Mar14).

The rocker and his band have scrapped the first gig on their Australian tour, which was scheduled for Wednesday (19Mar14), to allow the frontman to process the sad news and to make arrangements to attend his late-girlfriend's funeral - and now Jagger has posted a message on his personal website, which reads: "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."

Jagger and Scott started dating in 2001.

His website tribute comes just hours after a representative for Jagger shot down a report suggesting the rocker had split with Scott prior to her death.

A statement read: "The story in the New York Post re a split between Mick Jagger and L’Wren Scott is 100 percent untrue. There is absolutely no basis in fact to this story. It is a horrible and inaccurate piece of gossip during this very tragic time for Mick."

Following Scott's death, many celebrities and famous friends took to Twitter.com to pay tribute to the stylist. They included Olivia Wilde, Bette Midler, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs and Jagger's former wife, Bianca.
