Mick Jagger’s late girlfriend, L’Wren Scott was laid to rest on Tuesday (March 25th) in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Jagger was flanked by family and 60 guests -- but none of his Rolling Stones bandmates -- while he said farewell to Scott, who commuted suicide on March 17th.
The New York Daily News reported: “Three generations of Jaggers spoke at the service: Mick shared his memories of Scott with mourners, his daughter Jade read Psalm 19, and grandkids Mazie and Zak read Psalm 23. The extended Jagger family comprised about one-third of the mourners, and bold-faced names in attendance included Ellen Barkin; Nicole Kidman and her husband, Keith Urban; and rocker Bryan Adams.”
- Also on hand were Jagger's eldest daughter, Karis, and his four children with former wife Jerry Hall -- Elizabeth, James, Georgia, and Gabriel. Rolling Stones backup singer Bernard Fowler and frequent Jagger collaborator, Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics, performed “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” during the ceremony.
