Relationship Expert: Mick Jagger Using Sex to Cope with L’Wren Scott’s Suicide

Sugar Daddy Mick Jagger Using Sex to Cope with L’Wren Scott’sMick Jag­ger, 70, was recently spot­ted cozy­ing up to a young brunette—she appeared to be in her 20s—on a hotel bal­cony in a Zurich hotel, spark­ing rumors of a new May-December romance less than three months after his younger girl­friend, L’Wren Scott, took her own life.

Accord­ing to friends of the Rolling Stones rocker, the May-December romance, which report­edly started at a night­club, is just a fling that Jag­ger is using in an attempt to try and move on after L’Wren Scott’s sud­den death. “Of course Mick is still sad over L’Wren, but he is work­ing through it and try­ing to move on with his life,” said one close source, adding that Jag­ger is “enjoy­ing life again.”

Other insid­ers revealed that this May-December romance prob­a­bly isn’t the first fling Mick Jag­ger has had since his girlfriend’s death. “He has reverted back to his old ways,” revealed another insider. “This is how he deals with things, even in his 70s. Through good times and bad, the thing that never changes is Mick’s love for women. Sex is like a cop­ing mech­a­nism for him.”

Unfor­tu­nately, not every­one is as under­stand­ing. L’Wren Scott’s sis­ter is mak­ing it very clear how she feels about Mick Jagger’s play­boy behav­ior. “These pic­tures make me really won­der what Mick is really think­ing and feel­ing,” she told The Mir­ror. “His daugh­ter says that he is still heart­bro­ken and so dev­as­tated about los­ing my sis­ter. And then you see these photos—he will never change.”

One rela­tion­ship expert, Tracey Cox, weighed in on Mick Jag­ger mov­ing on so quickly after L’Wren Scott’s death, and she thinks a new May-December romance, even mul­ti­ple romances, makes total sense—and it doesn’t mean that he didn’t love his late girlfriend.

Jag­ger has a rep­u­ta­tion for being a sex addict and accord­ing to Cox, jump­ing in bed with strangers is exactly how a sex addict would cope with sud­denly los­ing a loved one. “Mick’s actions might not be ter­ri­bly sen­si­ble, pop­u­lar or man­nerly, but it’s not uncom­mon to crave sex—the act of which cre­ates life—when con­fronted with death,” Cox wrote in an arti­cle for the Daily Mail.

There’s no word yet on who the younger woman in the pho­tos is, or whether or not Mick Jag­ger is really involved in a new May-December romance with her.

What do you think: Do you agree with Tracey Cox’s opin­ion of sex as a cop­ing mech­a­nism for Mick Jagger?
