Mick Jagger’s long-time girlfriend, Melanie Hamrick, who released her first novel ‘First Position’ this week, recently spoke to People and said she wanted to keep her work and personal life separate.
The former ballerina worked with Jagger in 2019 and put her choreography together with the Rolling Stones’ music for the ballet ‘Porte Rouge.’ Based on that, when asked whether she would collaborate with her boyfriend for another project in the future, Hamrick said:
“I’ve been keeping work separate. For me personally, I prefer that because then it’s kind of fun. We are in such similar careers, to keep it separate is better. You’re working with the person all day, and then you’re with them at night. It’s like, too much of each other. And then it’s nice to have outside opinions, someone that isn’t in it with you. They can give you really solid advice. So I prefer the separation from work.”
At some point during the interview, the newly-minted author’s diamond ring also came under the spotlight. According to her, while it was a gift from Jagger, the ring didn’t mean the couple was engaged.
Clearing up the air about marriage rumors, Hamrick explained:
“I mean, I have to giggle because did Mick give me the ring? Yes. Is it for that finger? Yes. But are we, like, horny teenagers where we’re giving each other… In my mind, it’s a promise ring. We’ll be immature and call it a promise ring.”
She kept her answer about marriage plans open-ended by adding:
“I don’t know. I’m kind of, like, a live-in-the-moment type of person, so who knows.”
Melanie Hamrick and the Rolling Stones vocalist began their relationship in 2014, and they have a son, Deveraux Octavian Basil, born in 2016. Apart from Deveraux, Jagger has seven more children from five different women. These are Karis with Marsha Hunt, Jade with Bianca Jagger, Elizabeth, Georgia May, James and Gabriel with Jerry Hall, and Lucas with Luciana Morad Gimenez.
