The Time Mick Jagger Had An Affair With Eric Clapton’s Girlfriend, Carla Bruni
The Rolling Stones’ legendary frontman Mick Jagger is widely recognized by his music career with the band that spans over six decades which resulted in him being regarded as one of the most popular and influential frontmen in the history of rock and roll mainly thanks to his one-of-a-kind attitude on stage, distinctive vocals, as well as his personal style and charisma.
However, Mick Jagger’s personal life has been as popular as his music career since he has an extremely long list of people he had an emotional and sexual affair with. Allegedly, the worldwide known musician had sex with more than 4,000 women throughout his life which may sound surprising to many, however, Jagger has always been mentioned with his incredibly active sex life as well as his notorious relationships with other famous people while both sides were already having an affair.
Knowing that his fellow musician doesn’t have rules when it comes to being with somebody he desires, Eric Clapton warned Mick Jagger when he introduced his then-girlfriend, famous model Carla Bruni by asking the Rolling Stones vocalist to keep his hands to himself. As expected, the rest of the story ends with a brokenhearted Clapton and a surprisingly long-lasting relationship between Mick Jagger and supermodel Carla Bruni. Let’s dive into their story.
Eric Clapton Asked Mick Jagger To Stay Away From Carla Bruni
The Yardbirds and Cream icon Eric Clapton and Carla Bruni started dating back in 1990, and despite having multiple affairs with other women, Clapton described her as the love of his life back then. However, when Mick Jagger and Carla Bruni met in 1990 during The Rolling Stones 1990 Urban Jungle tour, while she was dating Clapton, the Yardbirds musician knew Jagger’s capacity of hitting on his girlfriend and begged his friend to stay away from Carla.
According to Christopher Anderson’s book, who is a famous author of best-selling biographies of celebrities, ‘Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger,’ Eric Clapton admitted to seeing the danger beforehand when Mick saw his breathtaking girlfriend since he once had tried unsuccessfully to steal his ex-wife, Pattie Boyd, and admitted him to be in love with Carla Bruni, however, the relationship was inevitable.
Mick Jagger Eventually Had An Affair With Carla Bruni
Despite being unofficially married to model Jerry Hall with whom he has been in a relationship for years, Mick Jagger secretly began dating Carla Bruni in 1992 while she was still in a relationship with Eric Clapton. Their relationship surprisingly lasted for years and the Rolling Stones frontman even missed the birth of his daughter Georgia May in England in January 1992 because he was in Thailand with Carla.
Even though she was aware of the relationship, Jerry Hall carried on being with Mick Jagger for a while and allegedly stated that she felt okay with the situation since Hall wanted to be with the Rolling Stones icon regardless of his lack of loyalty. Nevertheless, Jerry gave Mick Jagger an ultimatum and he picked her which resulted in his relationship with Carla Bruni coming to an end.
Being broken by the break-up, Carla Bruni actually went on to become the First Lady of France when she married then-President of France Nicolas Sarkozy. Mick Jagger, being the womanizer he has always been, had an affair with Brazilian model Luciana Gimenez Morad in spite of choosing Jerry Hall, and their relationship ended after Hall discovered the truth.
