Sir Mick Jagger says working helped him through the death of L'Wren Scott.

The Rolling Stones rocker has opened up about his long-term partner's death for the first time since her suicide in March, and he has admitted that he coped by working on Get On Up, a new movie about soul icon James Brown.

"I'm doing OK," Jagger told US TV host Matt Lauer.

"It's a difficult, very hard year, but I got back into it by working on touring with the Stones in Europe and doing other things including doing this great movie."

It is the first time the legendary musician has broken his silence over his tragic loss, besides a statement in which he admitted he was struggling to come to terms with his partner taking her own life.

"I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way," Jagger said at the time.
