Mick Jagger has broken his silence on the death of his girlfriend of 13 years, L’Wren Scott. See the emotional tribute below, where he calls her his “lover and best friend.”
Us Weekly reported that an insider told them that the singer is “terribly devastated” and inconsolable.”
The Rolling Stones have canceled their concert on Wednesday in Perth, Australia.
Frontier Touring posted this message to inform guests:
The Daily Mail wrote that the band is expected to cancel their entire tour, but no official statement has been made at this time.
Jagger’s ex wife, Bianca, who the rocker divorced in 1978, also expressed her sympathy.
Heartbroken to learn of the loss of the lovely and talented L'Wren Scott. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. May she rest in peace

"Appalled at the sexist reporting, lack of compassion and lack of respect for L’Wren’s accomplishments by most world media. #everydaysexism"

The fashion world is also mourning the death of the style icon.
Anna Wintour wrote this editorial for Vogue:
I am deeply saddened by the loss of L’Wren Scott. L’Wren was a total perfectionist, someone who absolutely embodied everything her marvelous clothes stood for: strength of character combined with a confident and powerful style. In person, L’Wren was always unbelievably generous, gracious, kind, and so much fun. Her old world American manners and charm were from another time, but her sensibility was always fiercely modern. We will all miss her.
Bobbi Brown, who collaborated with Scott, also released a statement on Facebook.
