The controversial new biography of the Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger seems to have opened a veritable can of worms.
While it gives out the inside information about his hot affair with former model and First Lady of France Carla Bruni and how he pursued Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie, on one side, it also gives the tidbits about Jagger's love affair with David Bowie, his fellow British musical genius, reveals Daily Mail.
In "Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger," author Christopher Andersen has made several claims, one more outrageous than the other. Andersen is known for writing bestselling biographies of famous figures like Princess Diana, Madonna, Michael Jackson and Jackie Kennedy among others.
According to an extract printed in the New York Daily News, Mick and David met in the early 70s and the pair hit it off instantly. They not only attending each other's concerts and exchange gifts, but their relationship soon turned intimate, claims the biographer.
"It was the glitter era, and everybody wanted to be part of the bisexual revolution," Andersen quotes singer Chuckie Starr as saying.
The duo were caught in bed together by Bowie's wife, who has also been quoting saying the same in the book.
In fact, the book also talks about how Bowie had previously been open about his and wife Angie's bisexual extra-marital love-life.
