London: Mick Jagger’s daughter Jade, who grew up in luxury properties in some of the world’s most desirable locations, has named a 120-pound-a-week housing association flat – mostly given to the homeless, disabled and those in low-paid jobs - as her home.
The housing association flat has become the 41-year-old jewellery designer’s new home after she tied the knot with DJ Adrian Fillary last year, the pair registered the house when they set up their firm 71Ltd in October last year, the Daily Mail reported.
The property, underneath the Oxo Tower restaurant on the south bank of the Thames, is one of the 78 flats leased by Redwood Housing to residents who are deemed to be “in housing need,” half of whom come from council waiting lists.
While Jade would not be entitled to a housing association flat, it is understood that Fillary satisfied Redwood’s criteria when he moved in 13 years ago and despite his marriage to Jade, has continued to rent the property.
A spokesman for the Coin Street Housing Co-operative, that owns the flats, said marrying a wealthy partner will not affect a tenant’s eligibility to rent the property if it remained their main residence.
Accounts at Companies House show that Jade’s business made 133,924 pounds last year. In February 2010, she sold her North London townhouse for 1.36 million pounds.
She still owns a 3-million-pound farmhouse in Ibiza, where she is believed to spend most of her time, and a 300,000-pound beachfront home in Goa.
