“Mick Jagger and I”: Who is Carla Bruni?

Mick Jagger (lead singer of the Rolling Stones?)wanted a perfect woman, from head to toe and wearing Armany attire. Mick was the true power in 1966: At the snap of his fingers he could move mountains. Mick was recognized in the remotest regions of earth.

Carla Bruni, current wife of twice divorced French President Nicholas Sarkozy,  was a big fan of Jagger since she was 15 of age. She was a groupie who adored her idol. At 18 Carla declared: “I will ultimately date Mick”.   The band of groupie laughed at Carla lucubration.

In 1988, the band Dire Straits were having a concert in Paris.  Carla is 21 of age and made sure to reach front row and attract the attention of guitarist Mark Knopfler, who is a friend of the famous guitarist Eric Clapton of the piece “Layla” and on tour with Dire Straits. Mark Knopfler invites Carla to join him backstage.  Carla invites her groupie of three  girlfriends to join her such as Joanna, Rapha, Alexia.

Quickly, Carla is the girlfriend of Eric, 23 years older than she. Eric is a close friend of Mick Jagger who was married to Texan model Jerry Hall and have two kids.  Foolishly, Eric presents Carla to Mick who is immediately smitten by Carla.  Clapton is reduced to beg: “Mick, please, in the name of our friendship, leave Carla to me…”  Yes, right!

Carla keeps recounting her affairs of week-ends with Mick to her entourage of models and professionals in the business.  Jagger has a castle in the Val de Loire called “Fourchette” and is sending his limousine to wait for Carla after her modeling show. Chantal Thomass recalls that Carla would say: “He may wait. I am not over yet. I am young and beautiful and Mick can patient outside.”

In 1994, photographer Max Vadukul was waiting with Carla in the airport.  A Concorde landed and Carla said: “It is mick coming to pick me up.  He keeps calling me from New York desiring to see me…” The stylists and personnel would often hear this request from Mick on the phone: “Hello, It’s Mick, may I speak to Carla?” Every half an hour, Mick would call back and get the same message “Carla is busy and didn’t finish her work”  Carla would never return the call when at work.

Photographer Jean-Marie Perier said: “Mick was crazily in love with Carla and was ready to divorce from Jerry Hall.  Carla would not marry Mick. And Jerry was constantly trying to locate the whereabouts of her husband…”

Carla is a possessive character: She rented a house in Moustique Island where Jagger spent his vacation with his wife Jerry and his three kids by now.  Jerry Hall is the last to get wind of her husband’s affair with Carla and calls Carla who coolly denies the rumors and detaches the phone away from her ear to minimize the rage in Jerry’s voice and hangs up.

During Carla’s 8 years affair with Jagger, not a single paparazzi published a picture of this couple who toured every capital in the world.  Once, Carla retorted to her husband President Sarkozy: “In matter of public discretion you are an amateur”.  You may read of Carla’s 8 years career as a famous model in link provided in note #2.

The funny part is that Carla was searching for a luxury apartment in Paris to meet with her new boyfriend Sarkozy.  It turned out that Mick Jagger had a flat there too.  Mick barely used his flat in Paris, but Sarkozy didn’t appreciate this choice and declined.

Carla had also a singing career in the last 6 years. This is another story, to be continued.
