Start him up!
Mick Jagger is only a few months removed from suffering through the loss of his longtime girlfriend L’Wren Scott, but apparently the Rolling Stones singer has a new woman in his life.
And the age difference is enormous between the two!
The 70-year-old rocker is reportedly dating 27-year-old ballet dancer Melanie Hamrick, and the two apparently met BEFORE the March suicide of L’Wren Scott.
They were introduced at a Rolling Stones concert in Tokyo, but apparently didn't start seeing each other in a romantic manner until some months later.
“After her death, Melanie reached out and they met in New York as friends. There was a spark there and she provided a distraction to the emotional hell he was going through.”
Mick apparently made the next move by inviting Melanie Hamrick to his band's show in Zurich, and that is when the sparks flew!
Here's what a source said:
“He invited her to Zurich to see the Stones and that’s when things became intimate between them. All of his friends are very supportive because Mick has been through so much pain, and she put the smile back on his face.”
But one person who isn't happy for Mick Jagger is L’Wren Scott's sister Jan Shane. She recently said:
“My sister deserves so much more respect than that. It hasn’t even been three months. I now believe that he was a bigger part of her troubles that no one knew about. I am so hurt to know that she was so sad and hurting inside and felt that she had nowhere to go.”
Melanie Hamrick could of possibly not have been single when she first met Mick Jagger herself. She had been engaged to a dancer named José Manuel Carreño in February, but sources believe that Mick, at least knowingly, did not cause Melanie to end her engagement with the Cuban classical dancer.
One source said:
“Nobody knows exactly what happened with Melanie’s relationship with José. But as far as Mick was concerned, she was single and available when something happened between them.”
Well, they're supposedly together now, and that's all that matters to them at least!
It may be a different story, however, for Melanie's fiancé and for L’Wren Scott's sister.
