As the Rolling Stones show their support for grieving frontman, Mick Jagger...
Mick Jagger's girlfriend L'Wren Scott's death has been confirmed as suicide.
The fashion designer was found dead in her Manhattan apartment on Monday (March 17), with a spokesperson for the New York City Medical Examiner's office revealing that her cause of death was hanging, and that she had taken her own life.
In wake of the 49-year old's passing, Jagger and the Rolling Stones have been forced to cancel their Australian and New Zealand tour, thanking fans for their "support at this difficult time".
Jagger - who recently released an emotional tribute to Scott - is being supported by his bandmates, Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts, with Wood quoted by The Mirror as saying: "This is such terrible news and right now the important thing is that we are all pulling together to offer Mick our support and help him through this sad time.”
Richards said: “No one saw this coming. Mick’s always been my soul brother and we love him. We’re thick as thieves and we’re all feeling for the man.”
72-year old Watts also noted: "We are all completely shocked", before adding that it was a hard decision to scrap their 14 on Fire tour shows, but they had to do the right thing for Mick “in these sad circumstances”.
