Rolling Stones: 'Mick Jagger is too devastated to perform'

THE ROLLING STONES called off their Australian tour because SIR MICK JAGGER is in "such a state" following the death of his long-term girlfriend L'WREN SCOTT, according to a representative for the band.

The rockers axed all of their upcoming shows in Australia and New Zealand after the singer's partner, fashion designer Scott, was found dead at her New York City apartment on Monday (17Mar14) in a suspected suicide.

Plans are in place to reschedule the dates, but a spokesman for the group insists Jagger is currently in no fit state to perform.

The representative tells British newspaper The Times, "All I can tell you is that Mick is absolutely devastated and that everyone from the band members to the sound engineers are being hugely supportive. He's in such a state."

The spokesperson adds of the tragedy, "I was with L'Wren a lot, and anyone who met her will tell you what an amazing person she was."

Jagger previously said in a statement, "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."
