Mick Jagger Love Letters Headed to Auction
Marsha Hunt, the mother of Mick Jagger's first child, Karis, is broke and has decided to let Southby auction 10 of his love letters to her written in 1969. Jagger was in Australia filming Ned Kelly at the time, and it's also where he wrote Brown Sugar. Hunt was the inspiration for Brown Sugar, and a star in her own right.
The letters will be sold as one lot at Sotheby's on 12 December and carry an estimate of £70,000-£100,000. Hunt said if she hadn't been hard up she would have happily offered them to have a public institution but she hopes the letters will correct some of the misinformation there has been about Jagger and that time.
