What is a sufficient amount of time for someone to wait before dating after his or her partner passes away? Obviously, there's no one right answer to this question, but if you ask L'Wren Scott's sister, three months is not it. Jan Shane recently slammed Mick Jagger after photos were released showing the Rolling Stones singer at a hotel with a young, pretty woman just three months after his longtime girlfriend Scott committed suicide.
Even though Jagger, 70, has never been known for his ability to stay faithful, Shane reportedly has a difficult time believing the rock icon is mourning her sister if he's already shacking up with someone else. Her exact words were so harsh, I'd be reconsidering my actions right about now if I were Jagger.
The photos show a smiling Jagger hanging out on the balcony of a hotel in Zurich with a mystery brunette. In one picture, the girl is leaning into him from behind, and the two look rather, well, chummy isn't exactly the right word.
Shane really let the Lothario have it by reportedly saying: "These pictures make me really wonder what Mick is really thinking and feeling. And people wonder why L'Wren was so depressed?"
Um, ouch. The two never really saw eye to eye, but they apparently made amends a few weeks ago. It's totally understandable that Scott's sis would wonder what the heck is up with someone who is spending the weeks after his beloved's suicide getting cozy with another girl, but her statement links L'Wren's depression with Jagger's behavior -- which is not cool or fair.
Fashion designer Scott killed herself in her apartment in March and didn't leave a suicide note. At the time, Jagger penned a heartfelt message on his website about his love of 13 years and it seemed genuine. I can understand why Shane is angry at him, but I'm sure he feels bad about losing her and he doesn't deserve to be told, in a roundabout way, that he may be to blame for her actions.
As for Jagger and the mystery girl: There are lots of reasons why people hook up -- loneliness, just to name one -- and Jagger's tryst with yet another young woman should neither be a shock, nor should it reflect how he feels about Scott's death.
Do you think three months is too soon for Jagger to hook up with another woman after L'Wren Scott's suicide?
