Mick Jagger Love Letters to Marsha Hunt Go for $300,000

Mick Jagger
Known for his womanizing ways, it's not surprising to hear that secret love letters between him and New York model Marsha Hunt came up somehow. They were auctioned off at London's famous Sotheby's Auction House for more money than anyone can count. A buyer paid $300,000 for 10 revealing love letters to the American model, at a time when there was a lot of turbulence for the Stones singer

In the weeks before these letters were done by him in Australia during the filming of Ned Kelly, Jagger had fired Brian Jones from the band for his rampant drug and alcohol abuse, and after seeing his relationship with singer Marianne Faithfull crash and burn during the Stones famous 1969 concert in Hyde Park, he started seeing this American model. They dated in secret and even had a child together, a daughter named Karis, before they broke up.

It's believed that Hunt was the main inspiration for The Stones classic 1971 hit 'Brown Sugar'. While Mick was enjoying the success of the song, she was enjoying the success of her role in the play 'Hair' while it was playing in London. When Mick had popped a suggestion of her appearing on the front cover for the Stones single "Honky Tonk Women", she declined it, but he later showed up at her apartment and romance bloomed.

The two still keep in touch, to this day, and he is very active in daughter Karis' life
