Inside Mick Jagger's Relationship With Melanie Hamrick

Over the course of being one of the biggest rock stars in the world, Mick Jagger has been linked to a lot of women. But it seems he may have finally found the one with American ballet dancer Melanie Hamrick. Born in Williamsburg, Virginia, Hamrick started her ballet career when she was just three years old and began dancing professionally at the age of 18 when Hamrick received her first contract in a Balanchine ballet (via The Mirror).


While they've yet to tie the knot — at least, not publicly anyway — the couple has been dating since 2014 and share a son, Deveraux Octavian Basil (via The Guardian). Deveraux is Jagger's eighth and youngest child, his oldest being Karis, from his relationship with singer Marsha Hunt, who's in her forties. Jagger and Hamrick initially met toward the end of the musician's relationship with designer L'Wren Scott, who he'd been with for 13 years. 

According to Page Six, the two first spoke to each other backstage at a gig in Tokyo where Jagger allegedly asked Hamrick out to dinner, per Ultimate Classic Rock. They later got in touch following the tragic death of Scott, when Hamrick reached out to Jagger as a friend to offer comfort and support. According to those who know the couple, the dancer "put a smile back on" Jagger's face "after months of mourning for L'Wren."


Mick and Melanie produced a ballet together set to Rolling Stones songs

Two years after Mick Jagger and Melanie Hamrick started seeing each other, the couple found out they were expecting their first child. Since then they've been raising little Deveraux across the globe in the multiple homes that Mick Jagger owns. According to the Evening Standard, he has a property in Mustique, Los Angeles, and a castle in France. Most recently the singer bought a $1.98 million home near Sarasota, Florida (via People), which has four bedrooms, an outdoor pool, and a spa, as well as several outdoor living spaces.


In between touring and raising their son, Jagger and Hamrick also found the time to collaborate on a ballet together. In 2019, they produced "Porte Rogue," a show specifically choreographed to music by The Rolling Stones. "Melanie had the idea to do with the ballet and she's choreographing it and she chose the songs to be honest," the rock icon explained to Town & Country. "We discussed a few alternatives — but she really chose them."

So what was Jagger's role? "To make sure that [the songs] all run together smoothly, do the links and the edits so they work together." And when it comes to whether their son has any dance moves like his mother or father, Jagger reckons it's "too early to say."


Melanie and Deveraux now go on tour with Mick

Like many rockstars, Mick Jagger has a history of seeing women outside of his relationships while he's on tour. According to The Mirror, the Rolling Stones vocalist has had over 4,000 sexual partners to date. The father of eight is clearly no stranger to scandal. Hollywood Life reports that several of his former lovers, including ex-wife Bianca Perez Morena de Macias and long-time girlfriend Jerry Hall, cited Mick's unfaithful habits as the reason for their split. 


In fact, Jagger's seventh child was the product of an affair with Brazilian model Luciana Gimenez. But Melanie Hamrick may have turned the self-proclaimed party animal into a family man. The Daily Mail claims that an insider argued that Jagger has "totally changed" since being with her. This time around, Jagger is skipping out on the afterparties and late-night hotel drama with the rest of The Rolling Stones, and, crucially, he isn't straying either. 

The insider even shared that "Melanie, Dev, and the nanny are on tour with him so it's all about early nights and hanging with his family." Most shockingly of all, this source noted, "He's happier than I've ever seen him."

Engagement rumors were sparked after an innocent selfie

Just like any couple that has been serious for quite some time, rumors about a possible engagement have started to buzz around Mick Jagger and Melanie Hamrick. But after just one, relatively innocent Instagram post, fans became convinced there were wedding bells ringing behind the scenes. Back in March 2022, a source told the New York Daily News that Hamrick had acknowledged she was engaged, after noticeably rocking a diamond on her left ring finger. 


But Jagger's publicist strongly denied their claims. Flash forward to November, when Hamrick posted a mirror selfie in a chic, all-black ensemble featuring sky-high stilettos and what looked to be an engagement ring. One commenter on her Instagram post wrote, "Is that an engagement ring?" Another user responded by pointing out, "Zoomed in looks like TWO rings!"

While the gorgeous ring can be seen in another post as well, there has been no official word yet on whether the two will soon, or maybe have already, tied the knot.
