Mick Jagger breaks silence on death of L’Wren Scott: ‘It’s been a very hard year’
The Rolling Stones frontman tells how he moved forward from the suicide of his late girlfriend
The fashion designer took her own life on 17 March and was found 'hanged' in her Manhattan apartment by her assistant. She was 49 years old.
Jagger discussed her untimely death on The Today Show during a promotional appearance for new James Brown biopic Get On Up, which he co-produced.
“I'm doing OK,” said Jagger. “It was difficult, you know, very hard year, but I got back into it by working on touring with the Stones in Europe, and doing other things, including this great movie.”
He also said that he’d received “a lot of support” from family and friends, which he “appreciates”.
Jagger and Scott had been in a relationship for 13 years. The Rolling Stones frontman published a statement on his website soon after her death:
“I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way,” he wrote.
“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.”
Jagger attended a memorial service for the designer in May and continued touring with the Rolling Stones later that month.
