Mick Jagger has eight children, and they could all inherit a huge fortune when the Rolling Stones singer finally dies. But you should not expect to get anything, he should sell his catalog of songs, as Mick is thinking about leaving the proceeds for charity.
In a recent interview with WSJ Magazine published on Tuesday, September 26, Mick, 80, discussed the possible sale of his band’s 1971 music catalog. Although he admitted that he had no immediate plans to sell the publishing rights, Mick mentioned that the money would not significantly affect him or his family, and explained why he is not involved in it much.
In addition, Mick said that he was open to giving his personal fortune to charity and maybe doing something good in the world, as he explained.
I don’t really like business, you know? the singer continued. Some people just love it. I just have to do it. Because if you don’t, you’re damned.
The Rolling Stones released their first album Not Fade Away / Little By Little in 1964. However, the band’s ownership of their music is limited to the post-1971 catalog, as their former accountant Allan Klein obtained the copyright for the group’s previous discography.
In 1970, when the band severed ties with Klein, they reached an agreement that gave him ownership of the catalog, while Mick Jagger and Keith Richards received ongoing royalties.
Mick Jagger is the father of a large family. He shares a daughter Karis (52) with Marsha Hunt and a daughter Jade (51) with his ex-wife Bianca Jagger. Her other children include daughters Elizabeth, 39, and Georgia May, 31, and sons James, 38, and Gabriel, 25, all from her previous marriage to Jerry Hall.
He also has a son named Lucas (24) from his relationship with Luciana Gimenez. In December 2016, the musician had a younger child, a son named Dever, with current girlfriend Melanie Hamrick.
Mick Jagger’s net worth is $ 500 million, but it is not yet known how much his children will inherit.
If Mick Jagger sells the Rolling Stones’ music catalog, he will join a growing number of artists selling their release rights, including Justin Bieber, who sold his catalog earlier this year for $ 200 million.
