Mick Jagger … Jerry Hall … Carla Bruni … what books are made of …!

Jerry Hall has a coffee-table-type book of her life out on October 15. It is published by Quadrille and will cost you the price of a Dior, Chanel or Yves Saint Laurent lipstick – £25. (If you opt for the lipstick, who will blame you?)

Mick’s always been news here in France which is explained not only because of those lips and hips of his, but also because he is fluent in French.

Lately, there is also another reason why the crumble-faced ‘aged‘ rock star is front-page news: He is an ex-lover of France’s First Lady – Carla Bruni.  Or rather, Mick is one of her ex-lovers. Yes, there have been a few, and Mick was probably her biggest catch until President Nicolas Sarkozy had come along.

The story of Carla and her lovers are being told in a book which was published here in France on September 15 by Flammarion. The book currently ranks 35 on amazon.com france which means it is selling as fast as a freshly-baked baguette here.  The book, an unauthorized biography is written by Besma Lahouri.

Lahouri writes of how Carla had gone around telling everyone ‘Guess who I am seeing?’ When she told them, they went: “Noooooooooooooooooooon!” Of course, it was Mick Jagger.

As fashion designer, Chantal Thomass, told Lahouri, “She talked about him non-stop.”

She also revealed that Carla had not however allowed Mick to take her for granted. I suppose I could say that she kept Mick gyrating to her tune like a cat on a hot tin roof would to ‘Satisfaction’. He used to pull up in front of where a fashion show was taking place and Carla, when told that he was waiting outside would reply, “Let him wait. I am not finished here yet.” And Mick waited. And Carla would be very pleased with herself saying, “I am young and beautiful. So he will wait.”

Mick took Carla for romantic weekends to his property in the Loire south of Paris.

But Carla’s pleasure and pride at being the lover of Mick Jagger had begun to diminish. He, though, had remained mad about her. He would phone her from wherever he was on tour and she would complain: “What does he want. He is always chasing me.” According to Lahouri’s book, she had said this to Odile Sarron of the Elite model agency.

“He wanted to marry her. He would have divorced Jerry to marry Carla,” Lahouri quotes French photographer Jean-Marie Perier.

All of this time Jerry Hall was looking everywhere for Mick, her lawfully-wedded husband, and today she describes him in her book as a “dangerous sexual predator”.
