L’Wren Scott’s sister has blasted Sir Mick Jagger for being "grotesquely disrespectful".

Jan Shane is furious with the Rolling Stones rocker after it emerged he met his new lover Melanie Hamrick - who he was pictured embracing on a hotel balcony in Zurich earlier this month - weeks before the fashion designer’s suicide in March, and she is now convinced his womanising played a part in her younger sibling’s problems.

“The more I think about it, the angrier it makes me. My sister deserves more respect,” Shane said.

"It hasn’t even been three months since she died. I now believe that he was a bigger part of her troubles than we knew about.

"It doesn’t surprise me at all. I’m just really glad that L’Wren doesn’t have to put up with him any more."

Shane went on to slam Jagger’s "sad" antics and the speed in which he has moved on from his later partner of 13 years.

"My sister deserved so much more than that,” she told the Daily Mirror newspaper.

“It’s a terrible thing for Mick to have done. It’s sad. His life goes on as if nothing happened. He’s still out with women, but a huge part of our family is missing.

"She had accomplished so much without him. She was amazing in so many people’s eyes. He just needs to quit dragging her name through his c..p!"

It was revealed yesterday that Jagger, 70, met Hamrick, 27, backstage at one of his gigs in Tokyo on March 6 - just 11 days before Scott hanged herself in her New York home.

Insiders say the rocker made a "beeline" for their dancer - who was previously engaged to a man 20 years older than her - but they did not "consummate their friendship" until the recent trip to Zurich.
