Mick Jagger's Love Letters Are for Sale
Mon, 19 Nov 2012 14:09:48
Ten love letters that Mick Jagger wrote to Marsha Hunt, the mother of his first child, Karis, in 1969 are going up for auction. "The letters speak for Mick at an incredible juncture of our lives," Hunt said. "The summer of '69 was the end of a whole era of revolutionary spirit – we didn’t know it was about to die."
Jeez, that's deep. So why is she ditching them? She is broke and needs the coin. And it doesn't seem like she can hit ol' Mick up for a loan. Perhaps he could float her some cash so she doesn't share such a personal, intimate batch o' letters.
The auction is set for December 12 in London and the letters are estimated to fetch about $159,000. That's a lot of scratch. No wonder Hunt is putting them under the hammer and on the block.
Ladies, would you bid on Mick Jagger's love letters and pretend he penned 'em for you?
