Mick Jagger remains the prolific singer whose onstage presence moved thousands of fans. His rhythm, combined with his dance moves and charisma, made it challenging not to love the talented singer who has bagged more than two Grammy awards and other worthy accolades.

As expected, a man who commanded such admiration had an intriguing lifestyle involving women, parties, and other eccentricities. One of the most talked-about aspects remains his marriage to model and actress Jerry Hall.

ALL ABOUT JAGGER'S BOND WITH HALL

Jagger and Hall first crossed paths in 1976, at the time when they both had lovers in their lives. The famous singer was married to his then-wife Bianca and had invited a fellow singer Bryan Ferry to his place.

Ferry was engaged to the gorgeous model, Hall and while they honored his colleague's invitation, the fashion icon became acquainted with the man who became her future husband.

Decades later, Hall confessed that Jagger found her attractive at first sight; even though Ferry felt excited to be in his presence, it did not change how the singer reacted to a woman that was not his.

After the first meeting, Ferry and his fiancèe were never the same, likewise Jagger and his wife. The iconic musician divorced his wife two years later and started a romance with the woman who stole his heart within seconds of meeting.

The pair dated for some time and eventually tied the knot in 1990 in a glamorous Bali wedding ceremony. It marked a new phase in their lives, and fans saw how their relationship took on a new dynamic.

At first, they were a lovely couple until infidelity and drugs became a steady aspect of their romance. The most wanted man in the industry could not shove off the womenfolk, nor could he forsake doing drugs.

Jagger tried to lure his lady into smoking and drug use, but she quit after some time, making it nearly impossible for them to cohabit. The singer once told a reporter that he warned her to keep smoking or risk their relationship.

In return, the strong-willed model gave her lover an ultimatum. She told him to stop using drugs and clean himself up. If he failed to do this, she would leave. Surprisingly, Jagger became sober sooner than she had expected.

In 1982, the couple took a break from seeing each other. Hall never revealed the reason behind their split, but the gossip mills ran a story that she was tired of waiting to be a bride, as the rock star was taking too long to propose.

The model was desperately worried about her future, so she left him briefly for a rich man named Robert Sangster. He was a wealthy horse rider. When Hall returned to her knight in shining armor, they welcomed their first child.

MICK JAGGER'S WOMANIZING WEDGES A WALL

Ten years after the first breakup, Jagger left her husband. She explained that it was due to her frustration from the singer's philandering. Jagger had left his wife shortly after the birth of their third child to see his rumored lover, Carla Bruni, in Thailand.

The then mother of three revealed that she was in pain and had had enough of Jagger's affair with Bruni. She added that it was surprising that he was still in contact with Bruni and confirmed that their marriage was headed for the rocks following the separation.

However, Hall maintained her title as his wife, and the pair seemed to patch things up until 1999 when her husband was accused of impregnating a model Luciana Morad.

Jagger's wife slammed him with a divorce after more than two decades of marriage. She got an annulment instead of a divorce, as their Hindu ceremony did not legally bind them.

THE DNA TEST WORSENED THEIR RELATIONSHIP

Hall had to put up with a series of drama surrounding her husband's inability to remain faithful. She could deal with the tabloids' tumultuous headlines and photographs, but the last straw that broke the model's resilience was Morad's pregnancy.

Jagger had met Morad at a party in Rio De Janeiro in Brazil. Their romance started almost immediately, leading to the birth of a child. At first, the singer denied paternity. He requested DNA, which proved that Morad's son Lucas was his child.

Following the DNA confirmation, Hall decided that it was over, and that was it. She filed for divorce and a settlement that would take care of her and their four kids.

LIFE AFTER JAGGER AND HALL'S DIVORCE

Hall had different remarks to make about her former husband. It appeared that after their final split, they were able to calm the storm and relate cordially, with both ends keeping their sides of the bargain.

The actress admitted that her ex-husband had a great heart but was brutal and damaged her emotionally during their marriage. She added that he was a ferocious womanizer who did not respect her sacred vows. 

While he gave up drugs to make her happy, he replaced the cravings with sex, a demon that tore their marriage apart.

After their divorce, Jagger entered into a long-term relationship with a much younger lover, Melanie Hamrick, a ballet dancer. At the same time, his ex-wife married a much older man, Rupert Murdoch, in 2016, after establishing herself as an actress.

Morad was tagged the home wrecker, but years later, she told the news that she felt sorry and had appealed to Hall for forgiveness. Morad said she wrote an apologetic letter to Hall, who never responded; she, however, wanted to reach out to her baby daddy's ex-wife.

Now, Morad is divorced with two kids and admits that she understands things better. She is also in a fantastic friendship with Jagger's partner, Hamrick, who bonds well with their son, Lucas.

LUCAS JAGGER IS ALL GROWN NOW

Morad and Jagger's son, Lucas, is the seventh of the rock legend's children. He is a 22-year-old young man with six older half-siblings and a younger one. He has a charming aura and loves to travel.

In April, Lucas underwent a tympanomastoidectomy surgery (an ear surgery), which went well. He had warm wishes from thousands of fans on Instagram. 

Lucas is a happy chap who loves to share his lifestyle online, including traveling around the world and spending time with his other siblings. For now, he is trying to break into the film industry and does not seem to have a flair for music, like his famous dad.
