Sir Mick Jagger - Mick Jagger says work helped after L'Wren Scott's death

Sir Mick Jagger says ''working'' helped him through the death of L'Wren Scott.

The Rolling Stones rocker has opened up about his long-term partner's death for the first time since her suicide in March, and he has admitted that he coped by ''touring'' with his band and working on 'Get On Up', a new movie about soul icon James Brown.

Speaking on NBC, he told US TV host Matt Lauer: ''I'm doing OK. It's a difficult, very hard year, but I got back into it by working on touring with the Stones in Europe and doing other things including doing this great movie.''

It is the first time the legendary musician has broken his silence over his tragic loss, besides a statement in which he admitted he was ''struggling'' to come to terms with his partner taking her own life.

He said at the time: ''I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way.''

Meanwhile, his ex-girlfriend Luciana Giminez was forced to defend him of being a national curse and causing the team to lose to Germany in one of the worst defeats of World Cup history.

She wrote: ''Mick has been successful for 50 years, he's a good friend and GOOD FATHER to my 15-year-old son.

''He is suffering cyber bullying .... and I would like to ask you guys who do this kind of bullying to think before you do it.

''Even though it only seems like a small thing, Mick is a person like us all, and he does not deserve to be treated this way by Brazilians.''
