Stones cancel tour dates as singer mourns

Mick Jagger paid poignant tribute to his late companion, designer L’Wren Scott, on Tuesday, calling her his “lover and best friend” and saying he was struggling to understand why she might have taken her life.

Jagger posted the message on his Facebook page as the Rolling Stones canceled their seven-date tour of Australia and New Zealand, “14 on Fire,” in the wake of Scott’s death. The noted fashion designer was found dead Monday in her Manhattan apartment, an apparent suicide.

“I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way,” Jagger wrote. “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.”

He added: “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.”
