5. She didn’t want to be known as Mick Jagger’s girlfriend.

6. She wanted a family with Mick Jagger.

According to the Daily News, Scott’s longtime housekeeper Lupe Montufar revealed that Scott wanted a family with Jagger. “She would tell me she wanted to get married and have a family, but she didn’t want to get her hopes up or say it out loud to Mick. She didn’t want to pressure him.”

7. Though her boyfriend is a rock legend, Scott didn’t grow up listening to Jagger’s music.

Scott told Women’s Wear Daily in 2012, “I wasn’t really listening to that music — I didn’t listen to rock ‘n’ roll. I do now. I grew up listening to Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf and lots of blues, R&B and Motown. I was happy to see Mick play with Buddy Guy and BB King.”
