Biography

Marsha Hunt is a name of, at least, two artists:

1) An African American model / singer / novelist / actress (b. 15 Apr 1946), who grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and studied at the University of California, Berkeley (at the time of the student riots) but in the mid 1960s moved to Britain. She has lived in Ireland since 1995. She also lives in France where she owns a home in the countryside.

She is the mother of Mick Jagger’s first child, Karis Jagger, who was born on November 4, 1970 in the UK. Marsha Hunt is the inspiration of the Stones’ hit “Brown Sugar”. At the time a member of the cast in the London production of the musical Hair (playing “Dionne”), Hunt reportedly approached Jagger at a party and, rather bluntly, informed him that she wanted to have his baby. Jagger obliged her but would not enter into a long-term relationship with Hunt, who, consequently, had to bring up her daughter as a single mother (although she also wanted to make her way in show business). Jagger even denied being Karis’s father and refused payments. A lengthy lawsuit followed, and a settlement making him support Hunt and their daughter was only reached in 1979.

Since then, Mick Jagger has been close to Karis. She would often vacation with Jagger and his family as a teenager. He attended Karis’s graduation from Yale, her wedding in 2000 and was at the hospital for the birth of her son in 2004.
