Designer L’Wren Scott, who committed suicide March 17 at age 49, left her entire estate to her partner of 13 years, Mick Jagger.

According to court filings reported by the New York Daily News, Scott’s estate was valued at approximately $9 million, with her Chelsea duplex comprising the bulk of her wealth. It’s valued at $8 million.

“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 wrote.

She was memorialized in a small funeral at Hollywood Forever cemetery in Los Angeles Tuesday attended by actress and close friend Ellen Barkin, actress Nicole Kidman and her husband, country singer Keith Urban. Former Eurythmics guitarist star Dave Stewart played “Will the Circle be Unbroken,” accompanied by Rolling Stones backup singer Bernard Fowler. Barkin read a poem, reported the Daily News, and Scott’s brother, Scott Bambrough, spoke as well. Scott’s former assistant Brittany Penebre, who found her body, also attended. Scott’s remains were cremated, as she requested.

Jagger’s personal estate would likely be shielded from any corporate debt incurred by her business, according to LS Fashion Limited. The company which was reported to be more than $6 million in debt according to UK filings, was said to be undergoing restructuring.
