Mick Jagger Devastated by Girlfriend L'Wren Scott's Suicide -- The Photo Tells the Story

The look on Mick Jagger's face pretty much tells the story as he hastily left a restaurant in Perth, Australia Monday.

The pic was shot a little more than a hour before the news broke in NYC that his longtime girlfriend, L'Wren Scott had committed suicide, but it appears Jagger had already been informed.  He left the restaurant 50 minutes after arriving.

Mick immediately made plans to return the the U.S.  Wednesday night's Perth concert has been cancelled.

Mick's daughter, Georgia May Jagger, also happened to be in Australia on a modeling shoot and she was photographed leaving on an international flight.

There have been reports Mick split up with L'Wren before she took her life ... but the singer's rep says it's absolutely untrue.

Jagger posted the following note to his Facebook page this morning: 

I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way.

We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves.

She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me.

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, Mick
