Mick Jagger’s Once Estranged Daughter Karis ‘Has Become His Rock’ Since L’Wren Scott Death
Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has sought comfort in the arms of his eldest child, Karis Hunt Jagger, since the death of his girlfriend, fashion designer L’Wren Scott, according to a report.
According to the Daily Mail, when Mick heard the news that his partner had tragically taken her own life on March 17, the 70-year-old postponed the Australian leg of his group’s world tour and stayed with his daughter and her family in their Los Angeles home.
The British paper has also claimed that not only has Karis been her father’s support system during this tough time, she also helped organise the funeral.
Karis, 43 apparently read a poem at L’Wren’s funeral and her children, Mick’s grandchildren Mazie and Zak were asked to read psalms at the private service.

All of Mick’s seven children flew to be at his side when his girlfriend passed away; however, the Daily Mail reports that unlike his other children, Karis remained civil with L’Wren while she was alive. According to the publication, Mick’s daughters Jade and Georgia Jagger “disliked the designer” and dubbed her as the “black spider,” while Karis remained neutral, hence why Mick turned to her.
An insider also told the publication: “Choosing to be with Karis at this time is a simple choice for Mick.
He’s picked the adult child of his who is the furthest away from showbiz nonsense and who doesn’t come with any entourage or baggage.”
While many may see this being typical of a father-daughter relationship, the pair were not always close, as the singer once got his lawyers to claim he was not her father.
Karis and her famous father did not establish a relationship until she was 12, under the influence of Mick’s then second wife, model Jerry Hall.
