LONDON - The funeral of Mick Jagger's girlfriend L'Wren Scott will be held in Los Angeles, the Rolling Stones singer's spokesman told AFP on Saturday.

The model-turned-fashion designer was found hanged in her luxury New York apartment on Monday. She was 49.

Asked whether the funeral would take place in Los Angeles, a spokesman for Jagger said: "That's correct".

Jagger, the 70-year-old frontman of the iconic British rock band the Rolling Stones, had been with Scott for 13 years.

On Wednesday, a coroner in New York confirmed that Scott had committed suicide.

The New York Post newspaper reported that the decision to hold the viewing and funeral in Los Angeles rather than New York had been made by Scott's older brother and Jagger.

The daily tabloid said Scott's body would be flown to Los Angeles this weekend.

Jagger is in Los Angeles being comforted by his children.
