Mick Jagger was New York City-bound to claim the body of longtime lover L’Wren Scott after the Rolling Stones pulled the plug on their tour of Australia and New Zealand.
“I will never forget her,” Jagger wrote on his website — his first statement since the fashion designer and model hanged herself in her Manhattan apartment Monday: “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.”
The New York Daily News says Scott hanged herself from a doorknob sometime between when she texted her assistant at 8:30 a.m. Monday and when she was found about 10 a.m.
Meanwhile, according to The Associated Press, details emerged in Britain about financial troubles Scott’s eponymous label had been experiencing. Last month, the designer canceled her London Fashion Week show, due to reported production delays.
On Tuesday, Scott’s body was at the Medical Examiner’s Office awaiting an autopsy.
