A NEW York appeals court has ruled that a landlord can evict Bianca Jagger from her Park Avenue apartment because of her immigration status.
The former wife of Rolling Stone Mick Jagger has lived in the rent-stabilised apartment for 20 years and argued that it was her primary residence and her landlord should be barred from evicting her.

A British citizen who was born in Nicaragua, Jagger is in the United States on a B-2 tourist visa.
Her lawyer Ryan Goldstein had argued that mould in the apartment had made it unliveable and she had stopped paying the $US4614 ($5148) a month rent in 2003.
The landlord, Katz Park Avenue Corporation, said Jagger was in the US on a tourist visa and was not eligible to maintain permanent residence.

The 3-2 decision by New York State Supreme Court's Appellate Division reversed a lower court's finding.
The decision, which noted that the environmental activist also had a luxury apartment in London's Belgravia, said Jagger would also have to pay back rent and other fees.
