The reasons behind the death of fashion designer L’Wren Scott have been a mystery. Some blamed it on money troubles, but her will reveals an estate worth $9 million. Others blamed her death on relationship troubles with her long-time boyfriend, rock n’ roll legend Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones. But Scott has left her entire estate, possessions and all, to Jagger.
According to The New York Post‘s Page Six, although there were rumors that Scott’s design business, LS Fashion Ltd., was $5.9 million in the red, her will shows an $8 million condo and other assets worth $1 million.
Shockingly the designer left her famous family nothing.
“I give all my jewelry, clothing, household furniture and furnishings, personal automobiles and other tangible articles of a personal nature … to Michael Philip Jagger,” Scott’s will states, according to court papers.
Scott signed the last will and testament in Beverly Hills on May 23, 2013. And she made it clear her family was not to benefit from her estate. She wrote: “Except if otherwise provided in this will, I have intentionally omitted to provide herein for any of my heirs living at the date of my death.” Scott has not spoken to her older sister, Jane Shane, 53, of Sandy, Utah, in six years. Scott also has an older brother Randall Bambrough, 58. Her siblings are her only living family members. Even though Bambrough was named co-head of Scott’s company last year, she did not provide for him in her will.
Shane may reportedly contest the will.
Scott committed suicide on March 17 by hanging herself from a balcony door handle with a black satin scarf.
Jagger recently helped to plan a private funeral at the historic Hollywood Forever cemetery for Scott at which he, his daughters and grandchildren, Scott’s niece and actress Ellen Barkin, among others, spoke, reports CNN.
“I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way. We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves. She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me,” said Jagger, 70, in a personal statement.
