Mick Jagger To Disclose Finances

June 20, 2000

NEW YORK (AP) _ A Family Court hearing examiner Monday ordered Mick Jagger to reveal his financial worth so the court can decide how much he must pay to support the son he fathered with a Brazilian model.

The examiner, David Kirshblum, told Jagger’s lawyers to provide him with a net worth statement by Aug. 1, when he will question Jagger, 56, by telephone from England about his finances. The boy’s mother is seeking $35,000 a month in child support.

Jagger’s lawyer, John Vassallo, said he will appeal the ruling. He said Kirshblum’s order is unnecessary because the Rolling Stones rocker says he can pay any legal and reasonable child support amount the court orders.

``Why should the entire world know what he is worth in order (for the court) to fix support for a 1-year-old?″ Vassallo said after the all-day hearing adjourned.

In March, Jagger acknowledged to Kirshblum that he is the father of Lucas Morad Jagger, born last year to Luciana Morad, a native of Rio de Janeiro and now a New York resident. Kirshblum ordered Jagger to pay $10,000 a month in child support.

Morad, 29, is now requesting $35,000 a month. She told Kirshblum she needs more money for rent; nannies; housekeepers; trips to Europe and Brazil for herself, the baby and the nanny; and security _ especially when she visits her family in Brazil.

``Unfortunately, Brazil is a very, very dangerous country right now,″ Morad testified. She said her father and her best friend had been kidnapped. Apparently, they were eventually released unharmed.

Morad said outside court that she and Jagger are still very good friends and that she had hoped they could sort out their financial differences.
