A BIT OF HISTORY: CHRISSIE SHRIMPTON

Mick’s first girlfriend, who he met at a party, secretary and younger sister of ’60s top English model and icon of Swinging London Jean Shrimpton, whom with her long legs and slim figure, was nicknamed “The Shrimp”. The couple went out for three years, and were said to be “unofficially engaged.” At the time Chrissie wrote a monthly column for the U.S. teen magazine Tiger Beat called ‘From London with Love,” though her literary career ended when Mick, feeling that he should be dating more famous women, he broke up with her in 1966 and began dating Marianne Faithfull. Later on, Mick had a court injunction filed against Chrissie to prevent her from publishing his letters to her.
