Mick Jagger has had a really tough year. Earlier Jagger suffered a blow when his partner L’Wren Scott committed suicide in March. Jagger has been quiet about it aside from the statement he made in response to the outpouring love and support.
However, in the recent days Jagger has been back in the spotlight after he was spotted in Zurich with a younger woman. That said, friends of the Rolling Stones’ front man are now coming to his defense insisting that the singer really needs to move on.
Although it’s been a difficult time for Mick Jagger it looks like he’s finally trying to take the next steps in his life even though it’s said that he misses L’Wren. A friend told the Daily Mirror that he’s simply trying to put one foot in front of the other:
“Of course Mick is still sad over L’Wren but he is working through it and trying to move on with his life.”
These comments about Mick’s state comes after the singer received backlash from L’Wren’s sister, Jan Shane. As we previously reported, Shane spoke out about the photos of Jagger and his fling on the balcony of his hotel room. The photos look innocent enough but show Mick’s affectionate side as the woman was photographed kissing the back of his head.
Jan Shane took major issue with the photos:
“These pictures make me really wonder what Mick is really 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. And people wonder why L’Wren was so depressed?”
As it stands, it’s believed that L’Wren Scott killed herself after falling into debt. Jagger seemed to be oblivious to L’Wren’s problems as he stated at the time of her suicide that he “failed to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way.”
His friend insists that the girl is nothing more than a fling and is happy that he’s getting on.
“He had a fling — he’s a red-blooded man. But it’s nice to see him enjoying life again.”
Another sign that Mick Jagger is starting the healing process is his return to the stage. He recently joined the Rolling Stones for a concert after canceling his appearances. It’s said that the band decided to leave out the 1966 song “Paint It Black” because the lyrics are so personal after his loss.
