(Newser) – Mick Jagger has a new girlfriend—and he met the 27-year-old dancer two weeks before his longtime girlfriend, L'Wren Scott, committed suicide. Jagger and Melanie Hamrick met and "exchanged details" back in March, according to the Daily Mail; a Jagger rep confirms they met when dancers from the American Ballet Theatre went backstage at a Rolling Stones concert in Tokyo. But a source insists they didn't actually get together until this month. Hamrick, who lives in New York, "provided a distraction to the emotional hell he was going through," the source tells the Sun.
