Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ron Wood have all issued statements regarding the suicide of Mick Jagger’s longtime girlfriend, fashion designer, L’Wren Scott. The 49-year-old former model was found dead in her New York City apartment by her assistant on Monday (March 17th) after hanging herself. Yesterday (March 19th), the New York City Police Department officially ruled Scott’s death a suicide.
Although it was believed that Jagger had left for New York immediately after hearing of the tragedy, Vintage Vinyl News — which operates out out of Australia — posted, “daughters Elizabeth, 30, and 22-year-old Georgia May are said to be offering him support at the moment, as are the members of the team in Australia with the Rolling Stones. British newspaper The Mirror claims the rocker is struggling to sleep and feeling ‘tormented’ over the loss of his partner.”
Charlie Watts shook off the blues on last night (March 19th) by sitting in on drums at Perth’s Ellington Jazz Club and playing with local musicians. Prior to that, Watts had updated MailOnline.com on Jagger’s condition, saying, “He’s holding up. He’s okay. . . He’s not really well. He’s not really here. It was such a shock.”
