Melbourne, June 1 (ANI): Mandy Smith, the girl seduced by Rolling Stone Bill Wyman at the age of 13, says that the rocker might have landed in jail owing to his philandering nature today.
Now, 38, Mandy has revealed that Wyman was 34 years older to her when he first had sex with her in 1984.
“People aren’t as protective of celebrities nowadays and if this had happened recently I think Bill would have ended up in prison,” the Daily Telegraph quoted Smith as telling The Mail on Sunday newspaper in the UK.
She added: “I can’t think of it as child abuse. If I did I wouldn’t have been able to move on. But I’m reminded of it on a regular basis. Things I hear on TV about young girls, different scenarios with older men, rape … But he fell in love with me so I can’t look at it as sordid or wrong.”
Her relationship with the Rolling Stones’ original bassist had been a closely guarded secret for two years.
However, when their affair was finally out in open, it became the biggest show-business scandal of the decade.
The two of them even got married, but it was called off just a few weeks later, after Wyman admitted being unfaithful. (ANI)
