(Newser) – L'Wren Scott's death was officially ruled a suicide yesterday—and made even more tragic by a revelation from her brother-in-law. Her longtime lover Mick Jagger "had recently decided to end his hotel lifestyle, and I understand they had just bought a $10 million home in New York," Rob Shane, who is married to Scott's sister, Jan Shane, tells the New York Daily News. (Keep in mind, however, previous reports claim the sisters hadn't spoken in years.) Jagger and the rest of the Rolling Stones left Australia today, presumably en route to New York, Perth Now reports. Jagger's bandmates are rallying around him after canceling their entire Australia-New Zealand tour.

"No one saw this coming," says Keith Richards. "Mick’s always been my soul brother and we love him. We’re thick as thieves, and we’re all feeling for the man." Drummer Charlie Watts tells the Daily Mail Jagger is "holding up. He's OK. He's not really well. He's not really here. It was such a shock." Sources tell the Mail Jagger is barely sleeping or speaking since Scott's death. But while she was alive, sources tell the New York Post Jagger's bandmates "didn’t like L'Wren because she was so controlling. When they saw her, they said, 'Here comes Yoko.'" His family felt the same way, the source says: "They also thought ... Mick was different, more reserved and less fun, when he was with her."
