In 1989, 18 year old Mandy Smith married Rolling Stone bassist, Bill Wyman - he was 47.They had been dating since Mandy was only 13 and so, unsurprisingly, their relationship attracted considerable media attention. RIP 😢💔🖤✨💫👼#anitapallenberg “There was none more beautiful, more unique and more inspiring! I will love you forever, dearest Anita.” The actress, born in Italy in 1944, met The Rolling Stones backstage at one of their concerts in Munich, Germany.
Anita Pallenberg, model, actress and longtime girlfriend of The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards, passed away on Tuesday. She is survived by two children from her 12-year relationship with Richards; son Marlon, 46, and daughter Angela, 44. I don't think there is anybody in this universe like you. You showed about life and myself and how to grow and become and exist with it all.
News of her death was formally announced on social media by her close friends, including Stella Schnabel, daughter of American painter and filmmaker Julian Schnabel. I was a little girl thinking I was big but I became a woman through knowing you.
Jagger was supposedly very controlling of Shrimpton, writing the songs ‘Under My Thumb’ and ‘Yesterday’s Papers’ about their time together and eventually leaving her for Marianne Faithful.
On holiday in Morocco, Anita Pallenberg left Brian Jones for Keith Richards.
In his autobiography, Keith Richards describes his relationship with Mick Jagger as “like two alphas fighting”, especially when it came to women.
However, in most cases these women were celebrities in their own right: talented and beautiful – guiding the Stones through their success.
In 1993, Wyman’s son Stephen became engaged to Mandy’s mother.
In his autobiography, Life, the notoriously riotous Rolling Stone Keith Richards tells a story about meeting his future in-laws at then-girlfriend supermodel Patti Hansen's house on Staten Island.
Although many of their girlfriends were only involved with the band for a short time, there were some who had a huge influence on the Stones’ music; inspiring or co-writing tracks.
