Mick Jagger Opens Up About Longtime Girlfriend L’Wren Scott’s Suicide—Pays Tribute at Funeral

This past month has been dif­fi­cult, to say the least, for Mick Jag­ger. The 70-year-old Rolling Stones front­man lost his long­time girl­friend, 49-year-old L’Wren Scott, when she trag­i­cally took her own life on March 17. At the time, Jag­ger was on tour with his band in Aus­tralia and rushed home as soon as he got the dev­as­tat­ing news of Scott’s sud­den death.

The celebrity cou­ple was together for 13 years and on March 25, Mick Jag­ger said his final good­byes as he laid his lead­ing lady to rest dur­ing a pri­vate funeral ser­vice in L.A. Jag­ger, who deliv­ered a eulogy, was sur­rounded by close friends and fam­ily, includ­ing his kids. Jagger’s daugh­ters, Karis and Jade, read a poem and Psalm 139, respec­tively. Two of Jagger’s grand­chil­dren also read a psalm.

Accord­ing to insid­ers, L’Wren Scott was very close to Mick Jagger’s kids, and “loved them like they were her own.”

Although the celebrity cou­ple shared sev­eral homes in Paris, Lon­don, and New York, Mick Jag­ger has report­edly been stay­ing at a hotel since arriv­ing back in L.A., and there’s no word yet on what he’ll be doing next.

I’m 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,” Jag­ger posted on his Face­book page the day after Scott’s death, adding, “I will never for­get her.”
