Meet the now 28-years-old ballerina, Melanie Hamrick; Mick Jagger’s pursuing 10 months after his girlfriend L’Wren’s tragic suicide.
Hamrick, an Upper West Side resident, was photographed beside the rock star, nuzzling his neck just three months after Scott’s death, the New York Post reported.
The professional dancer, who looks like a living, breathing porcelain doll, was no longer engaged to her longtime beau, former ABT principal dancer Jose Manuel Carreno.
The dancing duo’s wedding Web site was even still online, complete with details on the Royal Playa del Carmen sunset ceremony they had planned, originally for March 15, 2013, and Jose’s romantic May 2011 proposal.
Hamrick first met Jagger on March 6, when she and a group of fellow dancers were invited backstage at a Rolling Stones concert in Japan.
Sources told The Sun that the pair, who lives blocks away from one another in Manhattan, exchanged contact info and reconnected after Scott’s death on March 17.
After graduating from Kirov Academy, Hamrick joined ABT’s Studio Company in September 2003, rising to a member of the corps de ballet in April 2004. She recently performed in ‘The Nutcracker’ at BAM, and would return to the stage for May’s ‘Les Sylphides’ at the Metropolitan Opera House.
Even though Hamrick’s been keeping her relationship with Jagger indoors ever since their infamous balcony photo, but people in the dance world think dating him was like dancing with the devil.
