It’s been a devastating week for Mick Jagger since news broke of his longtime girlfriend L’Wren Scott’s suicide, and the Rolling Stones singer just posted a message to his fans via Facebook to share his thoughts.

The “Sympathy For the Devil” rocker wrote, "I am 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. She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me.”

Mick continued, “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."

Ms. Scott hung herself in her Manhattan apartment on Monday morning (March 17) and was discovered by her assistant around 10am.
