Mick Jagger wrote a statement following the tragic death of his girlfriend, revealing a different side of himself.
Amid their fame, members of the Rolling Stones experienced loss, depression, and heartbreak. When Jagger’s girlfriend, L’Wren Scott, died, he revealed a different side of himself.
After headlining the British Summer Time concert in Hyde Park, the artist resurfaces a tragic remark he made years ago.
L’Wren Scott died while performing in Australia as part of the Rolling Stones’ 2014 tour. It was immediately postponed because Jagger decided to return to New York, where he was living with the late model and fashion designer.
Following the confirmation, he posted a rare message on his website in which he openly expressed his grief.
“I’m still perplexed about how my beloved and best friend could end her life in such a horrible way. We were able to create a good life for ourselves and spend many happy years together.”
“She had a commanding presence, and her talent particularly impressed me,” he said.
However, it was reported that the couple split up shortly before Scott committed suicide. She was also referred to as Jagger’s “ex-lover” by a law enforcement source.
According to Jagger’s agent, who later corrected the statements, the couple was still together at the time of her death.
What happened to L’Wren Scott?
Scott called her assistant, Brittany Penebre, at 8:30 a.m. in 2014, and asked her to meet her at her duplex on West 24th Street and 11th Avenue at 10:00 a.m.
When the assistant arrived, he discovered her hanging from the flat’s L-shaped door handle. According to a law enforcement source, it was a “painless” way to die.
Even though Scott did not leave a suicide note, drugs, and malicious intent were ruled out.
Julie Bolcer, a spokesman for New York City’s chief medical examiner’s office, later confirmed that suicide was the cause of death.
Her London-based company, LS Fashion Ltd., was discovered to be heavily in debt before she died. It had a $5.9 million deficit in 2012, up from a $4.2 million deficit in 2011.
Her death occurred following the abrupt postponement of her London Fashion Week show due to “production difficulties in the major show and couture pieces.” However, another insider revealed that her failing business was the cause of the postponement.
