Mick Jagger being comforted by his children

SIR Mick Jagger is being comforted by his children in Los Angeles as arrangements for L'Wren Scott's funeral get underway in New York.

The Rolling Stones rocker flew into LAX from Perth, Australia on Thursday morning (20.03.14), following his long-time girlfriend's suicide in Manhattan, New York on Monday (17.03.14).

The British star, 70, has been joined by five of his seven children, daughters Karis, 43, Elizabeth, 30, Georgia May, 22, and Jade Jagger, 42, as well as his 28-year-old son, James, and plans to stay with them in California until L'Wren's funeral.

A spokesperson for the musician told the New York Daily News: "They adore him. He will stay in L.A. while the funeral arrangements are being made in New York."

L'Wren's body was claimed from the New York City Medical Examiner's office on Wednesday (19.03.14), two days after she killed herself in her Manhattan apartment while Mick was away on tour.

It is not yet known where the 47-year-old star will be buried but the former model's siblings, Randall Bambrough and Jan Shane, are hoping she will be laid to rest in their hometown in Utah.

Jan's husband Rob previously said: "Jan is hoping that Randy will do the right thing and bring L'Wren back to Utah. The family has a plot at a cemetery in North Ogden, and she would like her sister buried by their parents."
