The Rolling Stones have postponed the rest of their Australia and New Zealand tour following the death of Mick Jagger’s girlfriend L’Wren Scott.

Scott, a renowned fashion and costume designer, was found dead Monday morning in New York.

In a statement the band said: “The Rolling Stones are deeply sorry and disappointed to announce the postponement of the rest of their 14 On Fire tour of Australia and New Zealand following the death of L’Wren Scott.”

The rescheduled shows will be announced at a later date.

Scott, 47, died of an apparent suicide and was found hanged in her Manhattan condo.

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

The postponed concerts are:

Perth Arena – 19 March – postponed

Adelaide Oval – 22 March – postponed

Sydney Allphones Arena – 25 March – postponed

    1. Could it get any worse, a name brand designer to stars, but secretly a commercial flop in financial ruin, linked to one of the most eligible bachelors in the world, and yet more lonely, wounded, forced to look the other way, as Mick Jagger cheated and tended to her hands off….. but smile back happy for the cameras, forced to play the unbearable role of perfect, glamorous life.

      One wonders what may have come to a head in recent weeks that may have incredibly unsettled the beloved designer? Had she and Mick really broken up? Had the pair a major falling out….? Or was she just too tired of being and looking the part but never actually being the part that finally broke her?

      Beauty fades, talent not always what we’re told especially by oh so sensitive showbiz types; noone can tell me Mick doesn’t have at least a sense of his former gal pal would hang herself. Tragic as this is, it’s sad and hope God will save her troubled soul.
