Fashion designer L'Wren Scott has left her entire estate to Rolling Stones frontman and long-time boyfriend Mick Jagger – and not a penny to her family.
"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 reads, according to the New York Daily News. "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."
In New York State, "heirs" means any living relatives of the deceased. Scott is survived by a brother and sister.
Papers filed in Manhattan's Surrogate's Court on Wednesday estimated the value of Scott's estate at $9-million.
The filing said the designer's main asset with her Manhattan condo, worth $8-million. Other items included cars, clothing, household furnishings and jewelry.
Scott was cremated, as per her request, and her ashes were divided between her family and Jagger.
A private funeral was held for the former model in Los Angeles on Tuesday, led by Jagger, who had been dating Scott since 2001.
Scott committed suicide on March 17 in her Manhattan apartment, just days before the designer was reportedly planning to announce the closure of her label, which was $6.5-million in debt by the time of her death.
Jagger had reportedly bailed out his girlfriend's company on "numerous occasions."
Scott, who did not disclose her age but was reportedly 49 years old at the time of her death, began her fashion career in the 1980s as a model. The designer, born to Mormon parents in Utah, would later move to Los Angeles to work as a stylist to A-list clients including Madonna and Julia Roberts before launching her eponymous fashion line in 2006. Her feminine designs were favoured by stars including Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks and Oscar-winner Nicole Kidman, as well as First Lady Michelle Obama.
