LOS ANGELES: UK rock band The Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger has been slammed by his late girlfriend, fashion designer L’Wren Scott’s sister, Jan Shane, after a photo of him behaving intimately with a young US ballerina surfaced in tabloids recently, said US media reports

The photograph showed Jagger, 70, with Melanie Hamrick, 27, a principal dancer of the American Ballet Theatre, nuzzled against him at a Zurich hotel recently.

A spokesperson for Jagger said the two met when members of the American Ballet Theatre were taken backstage during The Rolling Stones’ Tokyo gig on March 6.

That was slightly less than two weeks before Scott’s suicide on March 17.

Scott’s sister was furious when the photo came to light.

“He’ll never change. And people wonder why L’Wren was depressed? The more I think about it, the angrier it makes me,” Shane was quoted as saying.

However, Scott’s brother Randall Bambrough still maintains a good relationship with the rock star and said he believes that Jagger had truly loved Scott.
