This weirdest manifestation of celebrity is the sale over private correspondence, in particular love letters, between auction houses. The latest: Marsha Hunt, an ex-girlfriend of Mick Jagger and the mother of his first child, is selling 10 love letters penned by her Rolling Stone through Sotheby’s.
According to Yahoo News, 25-year-old Mick wrote the love letters while working on the film Ned Kelly in Australia. The letters touch on subjects like the moon landing and John Lennon/Yoko Ono but also include song lyrics and set lists. They go on sale in Decemeber.
Hunt met the Rolling Stones while working as a model in the 1960s and got involved in a love affair with Mick, which resulted in her only child, Karis. The mixed race model/singer/author was the inspiration for the Stones’ song Brown Sugar.
