Mick Jagger released a statement earlier in the week that he was "still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way" after his girlfriend L'Wren Scott took he own life on Monday.

Though Jagger is still grieving, he has his bandmates -- his professional family of 50 years -- standing right by his side.

The group also postponed several shows in Australia and New Zealand following the fashion designer's death.

Charlie Watts

"Needless to say we are all completely shocked, but our first thought is to support Mick at this awful time.," Watts said. "We intend to come back to Australia and New Zealand as soon as it proves possible."

"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," Wood said. "Without a doubt we intend to be back out on that stage as soon as we can."
