Mick Jagger's ex-wife Bianca has been evicted from her New York flat after court officials ruled she could not list the pad as her "primary residence" while living in the city on a tourist visa.
The state court of appeals upheld a ruling on former model-actress Bianca Jagger's eviction from her R51000-a-month Park Avenue flat last week.
Nicaraguan-born Jagger - who also has a home in London - is in New York on a B2 visa, requiring a "principal, actual dwelling place" outside the US.
Court officials said: "Under the rent stabilisation code, a landlord may recover possession of a rent stabilised apartment from a tenant whose lease has expired if the apartment is not occupied by the tenant ... as his or her primary residence."
But Jagger insisted she was being evicted because she had sued her landlord after complaining of water leaks and damp in the flat.
She reportedly continued to pay her rent into an escrow account, though, despite deeming the apartment unliveable during the three years before her eviction.
A judge will decide whether she or landlord Katz Park Avenue was entitled to the money.
Jagger said: "I was a good tenant. I was paying my rent.
"What I expected in return was a habitable apartment." - Wenn
