Rolling Stone Mick Jagger today took the unusual step of publicly denying a 17-year-old Swedish model’s claims that he was pestering her.

Jagger, like most rock stars, has seen his name linked to a string of beautiful women over the years.

Most of the time saying nothing is the industry standard response to quell the rumours.

But now the 59-year-old has decided to start hitting back when he feels the claims risk hurting his family and friends.

In today’s Sun newspaper, Jagger is accused of bothering 17-year-old Swedish model Caroline Winberg with phone calls and urging her to join him on the Rolling Stones’ US tour.

The article, which includes comments from Miss Winberg’s parents, comes after the blonde, willowy teenager told of his alleged advances in a Swedish TV documentary The New Swedish Supermodels.

Today Jagger issued a personal statement knocking Miss Winberg’s version of events.

He said: “This is completely untrue and a misrepresentation of the facts by Miss Winberg and her family.

“We have spoken on the telephone several times.

“She said she was coming to the States in the autumn and asked if I could get her and her friends some tickets for a concert which I said I would try to help with.

“To suggest that I have pestered her in any way is absolutely ridiculous.”
