Scott had been Jagger’s partner since 2001. “We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves,” he said.
She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me”.

Jagger also thanked fans for their support at this time. “I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received”.

“I will never forget her,”
