Meet Bianca Jagger, Mick Jagger's Only Wife, 50 Years after Their Wedding
Bianca Jagger tied the knot with Mick Jagger in 1971, and in 1978, she petitioned for legal separation because of Jagger's infidelity with Jerry Hall, a model.
Bianca met Mick at an after-party after a Rolling Stones concert in France in 1970. The legendary frontman, who earned press reputation for his romantic involvements, and was frequently described as a countercultural figure, immediately fell for Bianca. He then invited her to their show in Italy.
The pair started dating shortly after, and while she was four months pregnant, they got married on May 12, 1971, in a Roman Catholic ceremony in Saint-Tropez, France. Here's more about Bianca and her life with the famous rocker.
Bianca was born Blanca Pérez-Mora Macias on May 2, 1945, in Managua, Nicaragua, to a triumphant import-export merchant father and a housewife mother, according to her IMDB profile.
She got a scholarship to study Political Science at the Paris Institute of Political Studies in France. A year later, at 16 years old, she legally changed her name from Blanca to Bianca.
Throughout the '60s and '70s, Bianca pursued a modeling career and dated different high-profile men, including British star Michael Caine and French music recorder Eddie Barclay.
THEIR MARRIED LIFE
The couple’s intimate wedding came as quite a surprise to guests, who only knew of the event a day prior. Only 75 people were in attendance, including Paul McCartney, Julie Christie, and Keith Richards.
On October 21, 1971, the couple's only child, a daughter named Jade, was born in Paris, France. Jade started her career as an artist in the late 1980s. On the grounds of Mick's infidelity with Hall, Bianca filed for divorce in May 1978. She later stated, "My marriage ended on my wedding day."
However, Bianca also had rumors surrounding her loyalty to Mick. According to hearsay, she had affairs with different men, including former President Gerald Ford's son, Jack Ford.
To this day, Bianca is still a true fashion icon, regardless of whether she puts on an androgynous tailored look or a marvelous gathering outfit for the red carpet, according to Town&Country.
Bianca is the only Nicaraguan to give a speech in front of the General Assembly of the United Nations.
As of late, she has become a social and human rights activist. She likewise established the Bianca Jagger Human Rights Foundation, according to her personal Twitter account. In 2017, Bianca published an article for the Huff Post about the murder of environmental defenders in Latin America.
"Hundreds of environmental activists have been killed all throughout Latin America as the world largely remains silent," she wrote. In a report published by Latin Times in 2016, Bianca is the only Nicaraguan to give a speech in front of the General Assembly of the United Nations.
She fills in as a Council of Europe Goodwill Ambassador, Member of the Executive Director's Leadership Council of Amnesty International USA, and a Trustee of the Amazon Charitable Trust.
MICK AS OF LATE
Meanwhile, Mick continued his career after their divorce as a Rolling Stones frontman, producer, and actor. After a career that spanned five decades, the star's net worth is reportedly £276million.
Mick is still quite active nowadays, with his presence most felt on Instagram. The "Dancing in the Street" singer recently shared a photo of himself introducing his little kitten, Nero.
