After the tragic and sudden passing of designer L’Wren Scott, her partner of 15+ years, Mick Jagger, released a statement on his public page.
L’Wren Scott, founder of her own company LS Fashion, model, costume/clothing designer, and Jagger’s girlfriend for 13 years, was found dead in her apartment on yesterday, March 18th. Jagger has since released a short statement on his Facebook page, stating his devastation and shock:
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,
Scott’s clothing designs had not only been worn by Jagger himself, but by the likes of Madonna, Angelina Jolie, Tom Hanks, Uma Therman, and Julia Roberts. She had also worked with the likes of Chanel, Thierry Mugler and other prestigious fashion companies. They had lived in London together, but with busy schedules were often apart. Shortly after Scott’s death, the Rolling Stones announced that they would be postponing their shows in Australia and New Zealand, saying:
“The Rolling Stones are deeply sorry and disappointed to announce the postponement of the rest of their 14 ON FIRE tour of Australia and New Zealand following the death of L’Wren Scott. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood wish to thank all of their fans for their support at this difficult time and hope that they will fully understand the reason for this announcement. The Rolling Stones are planning to reschedule these postponed shows at a later date.”
