If you make your way over to Mick Jagger's website today, you'll find a simple, beautiful photo of the late L'Wren Scott and a candid note from her grieving partner Mick Jagger.

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.

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,
Mick

On Monday, Scott was found dead of an apparent suicide in her apartment in Manhattan. She was a famed fashion designer, but her company was millions of dollars in debt. A friend of Scott's told the New York Post that she and Jagger had recently broken up. Reps from Jagger's camp have said that that claim is "100% untrue".
