Mick Jagger says goodbye to L’Wren Scott at private L.A. funeral

Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger was joined by family and friends as they said goodbye to his longtime partner, L’Wren Scott, at a private funeral service in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

The BBC reports a Jagger family spokesperson confirmed the service at Hollywood Forever Funeral Home included "memories and words of tribute" from Mick, and Scott's brother Randy Bambrough.

The spokesperson said poems were shared by actress Ellen Barkin and Jagger's daughter Karis, while his daughter Jade and grandchildren Mazie and Zak read psalms.
