L’Wren Scott leaves $9-million estate to Mick Jagger – and nothing to her siblings Add to ...

L’Wren Scott bequeathed her entire estate to long-time beau Mick Jagger – and left her own family nothing.

Virtually all of the late fashion designer’s worldly assets and possessions – estimated to be worth $9-million (U.S.) – will go directly to The Rolling Stones frontman, according to Scott’s will that was released by the Manhattan Surrogate Court on Thursday.

“I give all my jewelry, clothing, household furniture and furnishings, personal automobiles and other tangible articles of a personal nature…to Michael Philip Jagger,” reads the document.

The will also states, “I give the rest and residue of my estate to Michael Philip Jagger.”

The 49-year-old Scott was found dead in her Manhattan apartment on March 17. The New York City medical examiner determined that she killed herself by hanging.

According to public records, Scott’s personal estate was worth approximately $9-million, with most of that amount stemming from her apartment, estimated to be worth $8-million.

All of which will be legally transferred to Jagger, whose personal net worth is estimated to be in the range of $328-million. Jagger and Scott started dating in 2001.

Scott signed the will on May 23, 2013, in Beverly Hills, according to the documents filed and beyond Jagger’s windfall, the document is more notable for whom Scott left nothing: Her own siblings.

The will pointedly excludes Scott’s sister and brother with the statement: “I have intentionally omitted to provide herein for any of my heirs at the date of my death.”

As reported in People magazine, Scott, whose birth name was Lu Ann Bambrough, was estranged from her older sister, Jan Shane, 53, who still resides in their native state of Utah.

But Scott was apparently close to her older brother, Randall Bambrough, 58, who actually helped Jagger arrange the funeral and oversaw his sister’s body being transported from New York to Los Angeles last weekend.

According to reports, Bambrough even shared Scott’s cremated remains with Jagger.

The day after Scott’s death, Jagger, 70, released a statement on his website that said, “I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way. We spent many years together and had made a great life for ourselves.”

A private funeral service was conducted for Scott earlier this week at a Hollywood cemetery.
