Los Angeles - L'Wren Scott's body was flown to Los Angeles on Sunday.

Preparations are being made for the late fashion designer's funeral and her coffin was seen coming out of the side entrance of the Frank E Campbell Funeral Chapel in Manhattan at 10:00 on Sunday, according to the New York Post's Page Six.

Sources told the paper the coffin was being transported to the Hollywood Forever Funeral Home and Cemetery, where the likes of Jayne Mansfield and Rudolph Valentino have been laid to rest.

The 49-year-old star was tragically found hanging by her assistant at her Chelsea apartment last Monday.

Her funeral has allegedly been moved from the Big Apple to the West Coast at the request of her older brother, Randall Bambrough, and her partner of 13 years, Sir Mick Jagger.

The devastated Rolling Stones frontman is currently in LA being consoled by his children. The New York post is also reporting that his eldest daughter Karis, 43, was spotted visiting cemeteries in the city on Friday on behalf of her father.

Karis - whose mother is model Marsha Hunt - visited four memorial parks, accompanied by a friend and two security staff. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
