An advance peak into Mick: the Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger, a new tell-all on the subject of the Rolling Stone frontman's freewheeling escapades, was obtained by the New York Daily News. In the book, by Christopher Andersen, Mick Jagger's longtime affair with Carla Bruni, is detailed.
"At the height of the Urban Jungle tour in 1990, Jagger spotted his old pal Eric Clapton with a twenty-three-year-old model named Carla Bruni. An heir to the Pirelli tire fortune, Bruni had all the qualities he looked for in a woman: jaw-dropping beauty, youth, money of her own ($4 million a year in modeling fees, plus her inheritance), and, most important, a rock star boyfriend," writes Andersen of their initial meeting.
Much of the story is told by Clapton, who says that he was "in love" with Bruni:
"After Carla stood me up a couple of times, I got a call from the girl who had introduced us, telling me Carla was seeing Mick, and it was serious."
"It was a fling. I was in my twenties, so I wasn't thinking about a relationship. There were so many other women with Mick. I don't think I was responsible [for his split with Jerry Hall] There were maybe ten other women," recalls Bruni in the book.
