NEW YORK — Mick Jagger has posted a poignant tribute on Facebook to his late companion, L'Wren Scott, saying he is still struggling to understand her death and will never forget her.

The rocker, who canceled a concert in Australia to fly to New York in the wake of Scott's death, said the couple had spent many wonderful years together and made a great life for themselves.

Calling Scott his "lover and best friend," he paid tribute to her talent as a designer, and what he called her "great presence."

He ended his message by saying: "I will never forget her."

Scott, a noted fashion designer, died on Monday of an apparent suicide.
