The sister of American designer L’Wren Scott has lashed out at Mick Jagger after he was snapped spending time with a younger woman only 11 weeks after his longtime girlfriend L’Wren’s suicide.
The photos show 70-year-old Jagger relaxing on a hotel balcony in Zurich last week while a much-younger brunette woman kisses his head.
“And people wonder why L’Wren was so depressed?” Scott’s sister Jan Shane told The Mirror in the UK after seeing the images.
“These pictures make me really wonder what Mick is thinking and feeling. His daughter says that he is still heartbroken and so devastated about losing my sister…and then you see these photos – he will never change.”
A fashion designer and former model, Scott took her own life in March while Jagger was in Australia for his Rolling Stones tour. She was said to have been depressed and in financial strife.
Friends have defended Jagger, saying that his method of coping with grief differs from the norm.
“Some men drown their sorrow in drink,” a friend of Jagger’s told the newspaper. “Mick doesn’t drink much but he drowns his sorrows in women.”
