By Marcina Zaccaria ,

It’s a troubled time for The Rolling Stones. The band has cancelled their Australian tour after Mick Jagger’s girlfriend, L Wren Scott, died.

Scott, 49, was a designer who had a presence in the industry. Oprah Winfrey, Nicole Kidman, and Michelle Obama have been fans of the designer’s work. She was found dead in her apartment of an apparent suicide.

According to the Associated Press, the Rolling Stones front man's rep said he was “completely shocked and devastated by the news." The singer was still in a relationship with Scott when she died. Jagger and Scott had been dating since 2001.

Concert organizer Frontier Touring said on Tuesday that the Rolling Stones were scheduled for Wednesday in Perth, Western Australia. They posted a Facebook message saying, “We regret to announce that The Rolling Stones concert in Perth will not be going ahead as scheduled for Wednesday 19 March 2014,” according to the Daily Mail. Following shows were scheduled for Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Ticket holders were asked to continuously check Facebook and other sources for further updates.
