Nicole Kidman has been left "heartbroken" by the apparent suicide of her close friend and stylist L'Wren Scott.

Scott was found hanging in her New York apartment on Monday (17Mar14) and her untimely death prompted an outpouring of emotion from celebrity friends and fans, including Bette Midler, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs, Olivia Wilde and Jagger's former wife, Bianca.

Mik Jagger added his tribute in a post on his website on Tuesday (18Mar14), admitting he was "still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way", and now Kidman's representative has addressed the tragedy, revealing the Australian actress is too dumbstruck to pay her respects publicly.

Her spokesperson tells, "Nicole and L'Wren were close friends for 25 years. Nicole is heartbroken and in shock right now and unable to say anything".

Meanwhile, model Cory Kennedy has revealed that Jagger's bandmate Keith Richards' family has also been hit hard by the sad news.

She tells, "I spoke to (Richards' daughter) Alexandra Richards and her mum Patti (Hansen) is having a really tough time".

And guitarist Ronnie Wood's ex-wife Jo tells CNN, "She (Scott) was like this statuesque, floating around, elegant woman (sic). Very hard to get close to, but at the same time she would always be really lovely to you.

"I can't believe that she took her life... It's very, very sad.

"My heart really goes out to Mick... He's devastated, he's absolutely devastated. It must be a real, real shock to him".

The Stones were in Perth, Australia preparing for a gig when news of Scott's death hit the headlines. The band has since postponed a series of dates Down Under.
