Details have emerged about the mystery woman spotted with Mick Jagger on a hotel balcony in Zurich earlier this month.
According to U.K.’s Daily Mail, the woman is Melanie Hamrick, a ballet dancer who is part of the American Ballet Theatre in New York City. Oh…and she’s 27!
So how does Mick Jagger meet a 27-year-old ballerina with his busy schedule? Apparently, the two met backstage after a Rolling Stones show in Tokyo. Hamrick was in town with a group of ABT dancers, and the whole troupe was invited backstage.
The meeting happened about two weeks before the tragic death of Jagger’s long-time girlfriend L’Wren Scott, but The Daily Mail reports spokespeople and sources are insisting the two started seeing each other after Scott’s passing.
On the surface, Jagger dating a woman 43 years his junior seems a bit jarring, but you have to remember that former wife Jerry Hall is 13 years younger, and his most recent baby-mama Luciana Gimenez is 27 years younger.
Just consider him the Wooderson of rock and roll.
