Rolling Stones Cancel Perth Tour As Mick Jagger Reels Over L’Wren Scott
So sad. All of Hollywood is grieving over L’Wren Scott’s passing, but no one is more devastated than L’Wren‘s longtime boyfriend, Mick Jagger, who had been dating the famed fashion designer, 49, since 2001. The Rolling Stones frontman is completely “devastated” and “shocked” by the news of his longtime girlfriend’s suicide, and his bandmates are sticking by his side, canceling their show, which was set for March 19.
The Rolling Stones released an official statement of the show’s cancelation on their website:
The Rolling Stones concert in Perth will not be going ahead as scheduled for Wednesday 19 March 2014. No further information is available at this time, ticket holders are asked to hold on to their tickets until a further update is available. Ticket holders can check back here, at RollingStones.com, for official updates.
Although no reason was given to the fans, it’s safe to assume that L’Wren’s passing prompted the band to pay their respects to the talented fashion designer and her loved ones, including Mick.
Mick Jagger Completely ‘Devastated’ Over L’Wren Scott’s Suicide
After L’Wren took her life, The New York Post reported that she and Mick had split, but the rocker’s publicist quickly combatted those statements, saying, “The story in the New York Post re a split between Mick Jagger and L’Wren Scott is 100% untrue.” Jagger’s rep Victoria Scarfone continued, “There is absolutely no basis in fact to this story. It is a horrible and inaccurate piece of gossip during this very tragic time for Mick.”
Although L’Wren’s housekeeper, Lupe Montufar, told the New York Daily News that the designer desperately wanted to marry and have kids with Mick, stating, “She would tell me she wanted to get married and have a family, but she didn’t want to get her hopes up or say it out loud to Mick. She didn’t want to pressure him,” we spotted a grief-stricken Mick, following her death.
L’wren allegedly hanged herself from a scarf on a doorknob in her Chelsea, New York City, apartment, and was found unresponsive by her assistant around 10:00am on Monday, March 17. The police confirmed to HollywoodLife.com that she was announced dead on arrival, when EMS arrived.
Our hearts go out to all of L’Wren’s loved ones, including longtime boyfriend, Mick Jagger.
