LONDON - Mick Jagger has been blasted for taking up with a new woman, barely three months after the suicide of his lover of 13 years, L'Wren Scott.

The fashion designer's sister Jan Shane told the Daily Mirror that the Rolling Stones frontman was "grotesquely disrespectful".

In a photo published by The Sun a week ago, Melanie Hamrick, 27, a principal dancer with the American Ballet Theatre, was seen nuzzling Jagger on a hotel balcony in Zurich, Switzerland, on June 1.

They met on March 6 when the American dancer and fellow members of her ballet company were taken backstage during a Stones gig in Tokyo, Jagger's spokesman confirmed to The Mail On Sunday.
