How Mick Jagger Is Honoring His Late Girlfriend, L’Wren Scott

Mick Jagger Is Honoring L’Wren Scott

Mick Jagger Honoring L’Wren ScottMick Jag­ger has found the per­fect way to honor his long-term May-December rela­tion­ship with the late L’Wren Scott. Because Scott was a promi­nent fash­ion designer, the 71-year-old Rolling Stones front­man has decided to set up a schol­ar­ship in her honor for the Cen­tral Saint Mar­tins Uni­ver­sity of the Arts in Lon­don, England.

The actual mon­e­tary value of the schol­ar­ship isn’t known, but it will grant entrance for one master’s stu­dent per year (over a three-year period) to the pres­ti­gious arts acad­emy, includ­ing tuition and even some of the liv­ing expenses. L’Wren Scott was report­edly friends with one of the school’s for­mer course direc­tors, which is pre­sum­ably why Mick Jag­ger selected that par­tic­u­lar one.

The celebrity cou­ple was together for 13 years until their famous May-December rela­tion­ship came to a tragic end in March 2014, when L’Wren Scott com­mit­ted sui­cide at the age of 49. Her body was found in her Man­hat­tan apartment—she appeared to have choked her­self using a scarf and a door­knob. Mick Jag­ger was under­stand­ably said to be “com­pletely shocked and dev­as­tated by the news.” Shortly after her death, Jag­ger posted a state­ment on his Face­book page about their May-December rela­tion­ship, say­ing that he was still strug­gling to come to terms with her sui­cide, but that they “spent many won­der­ful years together and had made a great life” for themselves.
