Mick Jagger's ex-girlfriend wants soccer fans in her native Brazil to stop "bullying" the Rolling Stones frontman as a jinx.
The label has been an ongoing semi-joke during this year's World Cup as ever team Jagger appears to support, including Italy and Portugal, winds up losing; most recently he was in the stands for Brazil's humiliating semi-final loss to Germany, attending the match with Lucas, his 15-year-old son with Brazilian model Luciana Giminez.
Brazilians are calling Jagger "per frio," which loosely translates as "the jinx."
Now Giminez has posted an Instagram message in Portuguese saying, "I would like to ask you guys who do this kind of bullying to think before you do it. Even though it only seems like a small thing, Mick is a person like us all, and he does not deserve to be treated this way by Brazilians." Germany and Argentina, the two World Cup finalists are surely hoping Jagger is rooting for the other guys.
The Stones return to the road October 25 in Adelaide, Australia, to make up shows canceled in March after Jagger's girlfriend L'Wren Scott committed suicide.
