Reports say Mick Jagger is not taking the death of his longtime girlfriend well. The Rolling Stones frontman, 70, canceled a Wednesday concert in Australia, reps confirmed. An insider told Us Weekly that the rocker was “devastated” and “inconsolable” after hearing the news that his partner of almost13 years, designer L’Wren Scott, died Monday of an apparent suicide. Jagger is said to be traveling to New York. His daughter, model Georgia Jagger (with Jerry Hall) also canceled a fashion show Down Under to be with dad. Mick’s rep added that the couple had not recently broken up, as per Page Six. Fox News reports that financial problems with her fashion label may have thrown Scott into a downward spiral. She pulled her London Fashion Week show last month because she lacked the funds to put it on well, sources add.

Crossed signals

Elsewhere in Australia, Khloe Kardashian’s interview via satellite on TV morning show Sunrise was a publicist’s nightmare come true. The 29-year-old was discussing the sisters’ clothing line for kids. When the interviewer asked how North was doing, the screen went black. Sunrise executive producer, Michael Pell, claimed Kardashian’s entourage cut the chat due to the personal nature of the question, but Khloe said no way on Twitter and that the call “dropped.” Pell maintains his original view in a statement: “What happened with Khloe Kardashian on the show is a good lesson for publicists everywhere. Don’t try to censor natural conversation.”

Paying the price

By his own hand, Chris Brown may have cost himself weeks of freedom. The reasons for Brown’s dismissal from a Malibu rehab facility were detailed in court on Monday, with a judge ordering the Grammy winner to remain in jail until a formal probation violation hearing can be convened on April 23. Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin said he was most troubled by a comment the singer made during a group therapy session last week. “I am good at using guns and knives,” the rehab reported Brown said in response to an exercise asking him to reflect on what he was good or excelled at. Other transgressions cited by rehab workers included the singer ignoring a worker who was waiting to give him a drug test and rubbing elbows with a woman when he had signed an agreement to stay at least two feet away from all female clients.

Small victory

Cameron Douglas is back in general population at Maryland’s Cumberland Federal Corrections Institute. The 35-year-old son of Michael Douglas had been in solitary confinement for roughly two years after a relapse behind bars. The convicted drug dealer has been serving time since 2009 conspiracy to distribute narcotics after he was arrested for selling heroin in a New York hotel room. He’s due to be released in 2018.
