L’Wren Scott leaves entire £5.5m fortune to Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger
L’Wren Scott has left her entire £5.5 million estate to her boyfriend, Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger.
The fashion designer, who was found dead by her assistant at her Manhattan home last week, bequeathed all her belongings and her property to the musician.
According to her will, this amounted to a £5.5million estate, including her £4.8million New York apartment.
Reports are still suggesting that her fashion company was in debt, although the speculation was dismissed by representatives of Scott last week.
She wrote in her will: “I give all my jewellery, clothing, household furniture and furnishings, personal automobiles, and other tangible articles of a personal nature, or my interest in any such property, not otherwise specifically disposed of by this will or any other matter together with my insurance on the property, to Michael Philip Jagger.
“I give the rest and residue of my estate to my Michael Philip Jagger.”
According to New York state law, anyone who dies without making a will has to split their belongings between their living spouse and their relatives.
However, Scott had decided not to leave any of her fortune to her adoptive family, some of whom, it is believed, she was estranged from.
“Except if otherwise provided in this will, I have intentionally omitted to provide herein for any other my heirs living at the date of my death,” Scott wrote.
“The liabilities of this estate are unknown at this time,” the documents stated.
Security outnumbered the guests in attendance significantly, and searched cars for cameras and recording equipment on the way into the grounds.
L’Wren, who was found dead on March 17, was cremated on Tuesday at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles.
Jagger, 70, was comforted by his family, including daughters Georgia-May, Elizabeth, Karis and Jade, at the intimate service for 60 guests.
