Girlfriend leaves $11m to Jagger

NEW YORK - Fashion designer L'Wren Scott left her entire US$9 million (S$11.4 million) personal estate to her boyfriend of 13 years, Mick Jagger, it was reported.

According to the New York Daily News, papers filed in Manhattan's Surrogate's Court on Wednesday showed that Scott, 49, bequeathed everything she owned to the Rolling Stones frontman, forsaking her adoptive family.

She committed suicide in New York on March 17.

"I give all my jewellery, clothing, household furniture and furnishings, personal automobiles, and other tangible articles of a personal nature... to Michael Philip Jagger," the filing said.

It also said her main asset was her Manhattan condominium where she hanged herself and which is worth about US$8 million.

She was adopted by Mormons who named her Luann Bambrough. They also adopted her brother Randall Bambrough and sister Jan Bambrough, also known as Jan Shane.

Scott is reportedly estranged from Jan Shane; Randall Bambrough spoke at her funeral service on Tuesday.

The will also said she had no children and had "never been married" but the word "never" was crossed out, the News said. She was briefly married to a developer named Anthony Brand in the 1990s, it added.

It is unclear if Jagger, 70, will inherit all or any of the money as the probate documents gave no clue about possible creditors. It said: "The liabilities of this estate are unknown at this time." Reports after her death had said a London fashion company she owned ran a loss of US$5.9 million late in 2012.

But a spokesman said the figure reflected a loan made by her New York parent company to the British subsidiary, and that the company is able to pay its bills. Jagger's fortune is worth £190 million (S$398 million), according to The Sunday Times' Rich List in 2012.
