Mick Jagger Met His New Sugar Baby Two Weeks Before L’Wren Scott’s Suicide (and She’s Less Than Half His Age)

Mick Jagger Sugar Daddy and Sugar Baby L’Wren Scott’s SuicideMick Jag­ger, 70, is catch­ing some seri­ous slack for mov­ing on with a new sugar baby, if not mul­ti­ple sugar babies, less than three months after the tragic death of his girl­friend, L’Wren Scott. Jag­ger is no stranger to age gap relationships—Scott was 24 years younger—but, believe it or not, his newest sugar baby is even younger. The sugar baby in ques­tion has now been iden­ti­fied as 27-year-old bal­let dancer Melanie Ham­rick; that’s a 43-year age difference.

It was ini­tially believed that Mick Jag­ger and Melanie Ham­rick first met by chance at a night­club, but it turns out that the rocker actu­ally met the sugar baby in Tokyo back in March, two weeks before L’Wren Scott killed her­self. Ham­rick, along with a few other dancers, were invited back­stage after a Rolling Stones con­cert to meet Mick Jag­ger and his band­mates. Although noth­ing hap­pened between them, Jag­ger and Ham­rick exchanged con­tact infor­ma­tion and kept in touch briefly.

It wasn’t until after L’Wren Scott’s death that Ham­rick report­edly reached out to Jag­ger, which is what inevitably led to their age gap rela­tion­ship. “There was a spark there and she pro­vided a dis­trac­tion to the emo­tional hell he was going through,” an insider told The Sun.

Although they met over­seas, Jagger’s new sugar baby lives in Man­hat­tan. In fact, she actu­ally lives only a cou­ple miles away from the home he shared with L’Wren Scott (the same one where she hung herself.)

While Mick Jagger’s friends are dis­miss­ing his fling with the sugar baby as just a cop­ing mech­a­nism, L’Wren Scott’s sis­ter, Jan Shane, is just fum­ing mad. “I now believe that he was a big­ger part of her trou­bles that no one knew about,” said Shane, adding that his lewd behav­ior prob­a­bly added to L’Wren Scott’s depres­sion. “I am so hurt to know that she was so sad and hurt­ing inside and felt that she had nowhere to go.”

Like Mick Jag­ger, Melanie Ham­rick is very accus­tomed to age gap rela­tion­ships. A month before meet­ing Jag­ger, she was believed to still be engaged to José Manuel Car­reño, a 46-year-old dancer—she was only 17 when she and her fiancé first met. There’s no word on when their six-year rela­tion­ship ended, or if it had any­thing to do with Mick Jagger.

What do you think: Is three months too soon for Mick Jag­ger to be mov­ing on with a new sugar baby?
