Anita Pallenberg dead: Rolling Stones muse, Keith Richards' ex was 73

Keith Richards is reportedly "completely devastated" following the passing of his former partner Anita Pallenberg.

Anita Pallenberg, the actress and model who became one of the most iconic faces of the 1960s and 1970s, has died.

Her death was confirmed by Pallenberg's close friend, actress Stella Schnabel, who shared a picture of her on Instagram with the words "I have never met a woman quite like you Anita".

Pallenberg is survived by her two surviving children with Richards - son Marlon and daughter Angela - and five grandchildren.

Anita Pallenberg, a model and actress best known for being the muse and long-time girlfriend of two members of the Rolling Stones, has died.

In Richards' biography Life, he says that she also had a fling with singer Mick Jagger. She also filmed Performance that year, but Warner Bros. did not release the violent, hallucinogenic film until 1970.

She had roles in films including 1969's Barbarella and 2007's Mister Lonely, and made a cameo appearance in BBC sitcom Absolutely Fabulous in 2001. She taught me so much, especially after we got clean; it was very good, and so much fun! Richards has said that they both were addicted to heroin and Pallenberg was charged in the 1977 drug arrest; the pair went to rehab rather than prison, according to Variety.

She was also said to have had a sexual relationship with Mick Jagger during the production of Performance. I went into this - what do they call it before you become a butterfly? - cocoon for a long time.

Pallenberg was born in Rome in 1944.

The cause of her death has not yet been disclosed.

Let's raise a toast to the late great Anita Pallenberg, queen of the underground, the Rolling Stones muse who gave the Glimmer Twins their glimmer lessons. However, their relationship was tumultuous and the duo chose to split in 1980. In her youth, she bounced around the Western World, spending time in Germany, Paris and New York City, where she hung with Andy Warhol's Factory crowd before ultimately settling in London. But the life did not appeal to her.

"I am ready to die", she told him. "Then in NY I knew [poets and writers] Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, William Burroughs and, in Paris, when the French New Wave was in full swing, I hung out with Luis Buñuel and Truffaut".
