At the request of heartbroken Mick Jagger
- Despite living in New York and London, a final farewell to the designer will be held in California
- Rolling Stones singer is being comforted by his five children on West Coast already
- Sister Jan Shane is being ‘kept away from services’ after falling out with the designer six years ago
L’Wren Scott tragically left the world in New York, but those close to her will be saying their final goodbyes to the designer in California.
At the request of her grief stricken partner Mike Jagger, her older brother, Randall Bambrough, has moved the funeral to the West Coast on Friday.
According to Page Six, the pair decided to have both a final viewing and funeral on the West Coast, where the 70-year-old rocker is currently residing.
The singer has only just flown back to the United States from Australia, where the Rolling Stones were on tour when he received the tragic news that the 49-year-old had taken her life.
The designer was found in her Manhattan apartment on Monday, with the coroner ruling it a suicide.
Jagger’s spokesman confirmed to the MailOnline that he is in Los Angeles being comforted by his children – daughters Karis, Elizabeth, Georgia May and Jade as well as his son James.
Scott’s body is currently at a New York funeral home but will soon be flown to Los Angeles.

Page Six said: ‘Scott’s body has been at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel on Manhattan’s Upper East Side since Wednesday, when the Medical Examiner’s office released it after confirming her death was a suicide.’
Scott did not leave a note and many have speculated the stress of her business facing severe financial issues may have contributed to her hanging death.
The designer – who was raised in Utah – also has a sister, Jan Shane, however, according to Page 6 she has been barred from being part of the funeral.

Shane’s husband, Ron, told The Post: ‘Randy is trying to keep Jan from being able to attend any services.’
The husband said that Shane and Scott had been close but had a falling out when their mother died six years ago.
Earlier this week, Scott’s sister told MailOnline that she hoped she would be buried in the family’s plot in Ogden, Utah, next to her adoptive parents.
As decisions were being made to farewell the designer, Jagger’s band mates also returned back to America, having cancelled the Australian tour.

Frontier Touring has confirmed it is working on new dates for the Rolling Stones’ Australian tour. Concert promoters said the band’s shows may be held after the football season in either October or November, News.com.au reported.
On Wednesday night, the same night the Rolling Stones were due to perform in front of more than 15,000 screaming fans for the first show of their sold-out tour, drummer Charlie Watts played to just 130 people at the city’s tiny Ellington Jazz Club.
The impromptu gig followed Watts telling MailOnline that Mick Jagger had been left dazed and unwell following the apparent suicide on Monday.
‘He’s holding up. He’s okay,’ Watts said earlier that night, adding: ‘He’s not really well. He’s not really here. It was such a shock.
