    In a message posted to the Rolling Stones' Facebook page, rocker Mick Jagger said he is "struggling to understand how my lover and best friend [L'Wren Scott] could end her life in this tragic way." Scott was found hanged in her NYC apartment on Monday. The 49-year-old's fashion company was reportedly deep in debt, and the New York Times reports that she was going to announce its sale on Wednesday. While some news outlets have claimed that Scott and Jagger had split, the musician's spokesman said the couple were still together at the time of the fashion designer's death. "There is absolutely no basis in fact to this story. It's a horrible and inaccurate piece of gossip during a very tragic time for Mick," he said.
