Scott was found dead by her assistant at her Manhattan apartment yesterday morning. She is thought to have committed suicide.
In a statement on his website, Jagger posted the following:
“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.
The Rolling Stones have now cancelled the first date of their Australian tour following the news.
The band were scheduled to play in Perth on Wednesday, but the promoter confirmed the gig had been axed for the foreseeable future.
The Stones are slated to play five more shows in Australia, but it is unclear as of yet whether they will go ahead.
The On Fire tour is then scheduled to move to Europe in June, with concerts planned for the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Belgium.
Sir Mick, 70, began dating Scott in 2001.
