Sir Mick Jagger finds it ''too raw'' to return to New York after the death of his girlfriend L'Wren Scott.

The Rolling Stones singer, whose partner was found dead in her city apartment on Monday morning (17.03.14) after committing suicide, flew to Los Angeles yesterday (20.03.14), and is being comforted by his children, including daughter Karis, with former lover Marsha Hunt, in California, who he is ''very close'' to.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper Mick finds 43-year-old Karis a ''huge source of comfort'' and he is believed to be helping to plan L'Wren's funeral.

The 70-year-old star, who dated the fashion designer for 13 years, will also be joined by daughters Elizabeth, 30, Georgia, 22, and Jade, 42, who is seven months pregnant with DJ husband Adrian Fillary, and Mick's son James, 28.

Jade reportedly managed to obtain special dispensation from an airline to fly to California to be by her dad's side.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''The kids, who call themselves 'Team Jagger', were waiting to hear what it was Mick wanted to do.

''As soon as he decided to head to LA, then they were heading there too.

''Mick will be supported by his whole family after what's been a huge shock.''

The 'Brown Sugar' hitmaker and his bandmates - Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood - arrived in America from Perth after postponing their tour in Australia and New Zealand.

L'Wren, 49, and Mick had recently purchased a home in New York after he decided to ''end his hotel lifestyle'' and told of his shock after her death.

The designer was said to be in more than $6million worth of debt and was planning to close her business before she decided to take her own life.
