UPDATE (6/15/2014): No one is doubting that Mick Jagger has moves (as a certain Maroon 5 song can attest), but does he also have a new 27-year-old girlfriend? The Daily Mail (via Radar Online) is reporting that the 71-year-old Rolling Stones frontman is now dating 27-year-old New York-based dancer Melanie Hamrick.
The British tabloid has posted photos of the pair together. The publication reports that Mick and Melanie met backstage at a Rolling Stone show in Tokyo in early March 2014, just two weeks before Mick's longtime girlfriend L'Wren Scott took her own life at age 49.
"These pictures make me really wonder what Mick is really thinking and feeling," L'Wren's sister says about the pics of Mick and Melanie. Click here to see the controversial photos.
Original story (3/18/2014): Our hearts go out to Mick Jagger and the other members of L’Wren Scott’s inner circle.
Just one day after his beautiful girlfriend of 12 years, designer L’Wren Scott, was found dead of a suspected suicide in her New York City apartment, the famed rocker has canceled his upcoming plans to tour Australia with The Rolling Stones.
L’Wren, a former model who had seamlessly transitioned her industry knowledge into a successful career as one of Hollywood’s favorite designers and stylists, left no note at the scene, although some have suspected that her death was the result of her company’s mounting debt, which reportedly topped $6 million.
While others claimed that a recent split with Mick was what started a downward spiral for 49-year-old L’Wren, Mick’s spokesperson vehemently denies these claims, adding that two were very much a couple at the time of the designer’s death.
Many members of Hollywood’s elite have expressed their pain and sympathy stemming from the loss of L’Wren, to which Mick graciously responded, despite his obvious devastation.
“I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received," said the star. "I will never forget her."
