Mick Jagger - Mick Jagger is 'not well'

Subscribe to Mick Jagger alerts

Sir Mick Jagger has been unwell since hearing of L'Wren Scott's death.

The 70-year-old rocker is struggling to come to terms with the apparent suicide of his long-term partner - who was found dead in her New York apartment on Monday (17.03.14) - and has been very distant since hearing the news, his Rolling Stones bandmate Charlie Watts has revealed.

The drummer told MailOnline website: ''He's holding up. He's OK. He's not really well. He's not really here. It was such a shock.''

The 'Brown Sugar' singer was dining at Perth restaurant Coco's when he heard the tragic news, and the manager of the eatery said he still took the time to thank his waiter and apologise for his abrupt departure before he left.

Denise Zammit told America's Closer magazine: ''Before he left the restaurant he shook the waiter's hand and said, 'I'm sorry I have to leave' and he said he'd had a great night. He said he had to leave straight away.

''It was just awful. It's just devastating for somebody to get that news...It was a beautiful evening, the weather was stunning...He was just having an easy-going, relaxed dinner.''

The Rolling Stones had been due to embark on a string of gigs in Australia and New Zealand from tonight (19.03.14), but have axed the shows following the tragic news.

For pete's sake the man is grieving and he's in shock. He is going to carry this with him the rest of his life. He is always going to wonder "why didn't I see any signs" and "I should have stopped her". Suicide is a very selfish act. They are not thinking about the loved ones they are leaving behind. My heart goes out to him and bless the rest of the Stones, they're behind the legendary frontman. Hugs Mick and the rest of the boys.

He is grieving! This happened to me too back in 85. Its the worse, & I had to go to SOS (Survivors of Suicide) Meetings for a long time. Took me over 2 years to feel alittle better! It hasnt even been a month! Of course he is NOT going to be ok. He needs to relax, make sure he is eating/drinking. *With my situation, I broke up with boyfriend too, (moved out) & it really killed me, effected me. Thats all we think about too for a very long time. Its tragic, so of course he going to look like crap! Big HUGS for MICK!! <3
