Jerry Hall writes about Mick Jagger's '70s heroin habit

Former partner says she was 'disgusted' by his drug use

Jerry Hall writes about Mick Jagger's '70s heroin habit
Mick Jagger's former partner Jerry Hall has claimed that he regularly used heroin in the 1970s.

Hall, who has four children with The Rolling Stones frontman and split with him in 1990, says she managed to wean him off the drug.

Telegraph.co.uk reports that Hall wrote in her new autobiography: "Mick had told me he took LSD every day for a year in the '60s. He also admitted he was smoking heroin. I was disgusted. I told him I couldn't see him if he took drugs, saying, 'Go away and don't come back until you're straight'. He succeeded – he had amazing will power."

Jagger himself has previously remained secretive about his use of heroin, denying that the drug was his when it was found by police at his Chelsea home in 1969.

A spokesperson for Jagger declined to comment on Hall's autobiography.
