LOS ANGELES-A grieving Mick Jagger bid farewell Tuesday to his fashion designer girlfriend L’Wren Scott, in a private funeral with family and celebrity friends a week after she killed herself.
Nicole Kidman, her husband musician Keith Urban and rocker Bryan Adams were among guests for the cremation service at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, media reports said. Former Eurythmics star Dave Stewart played guitar for a rendition of gospel hymn ‘Will the Circle be Unbroken,’ sung by veteran Rolling Stones backing singer Bernard Fowler, said the Rolling Stones frontman’s spokesman.
Jagger, 70, who flew to Los Angeles to be close to his daughters last week after postponing a Stones tour of Australia and New Zealand, arrived in a blacked-out SUV at the cemetery, closed for the day. ‘A small private gathering of family and close friends attended a funeral service for L’Wren Scott today’ at the Hollywood Forever Funeral Home, which is in the cemetery grounds, Jagger’s spokesman said.
Scott, who committed suicide in New York last Monday, was cremated, spokesman Bernard Doherty told AFP after the ceremony. The roughly hour-long service with blessings and prayers included ‘memories and words of tribute’ from Jagger and Scott’s brother Randy Bambrough, he said in a statement.
