Following the tragic news that his long-term girlfriend L’Wren Scott had taken her own life, Mick Jagger has released a moving statement on his official website to pay tribute to his lover and “best friend”.
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,
Simple and beautiful. RIP L’Wren Scott.
