Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts give their thoughts...
Billboard reports that Mick Jagger's Rolling Stones bandmates are supporting him after the death of his girlfriend L'Wren Scott.
Keith Richards said: "No one saw this coming. Mick's always been my soul brother and we love him… we're thick as thieves and we're all feeling for the man."
He added that he's sorry to disappoint fans in Australia and New Zealand, where concerts were set for this week but then postponed. He concluded: "We'll see everyone really soon."
Guitarist Ronnie Wood (a member since 1975) and drummer Charlie Watts (who has known Jagger for over 50 years) also supported Jagger.
Wood said: "This is such terrible news and right now the important thing is that we are all pulling together to offer Mick our support and help him through this sad time. Without a doubt we intend to be back out on that stage as soon as we can."
Watts added: "Needless to say we are all completely shocked but our first thought is to support Mick at this awful time. We intend to come back to Australia and New Zealand as soon as it proves possible."
Scott's death is believed to be a suicide. She was found in her Manhattan apartment on Monday morning. She dated Jagger since 2001 and did work on the band's costumes for the 50th anniversary tour last year.
