Mick Jagger probably shouldn’t expect Tony Parsons to send a present for his newborn son.
“Man and Boy” author and British journalist Parsons hate-tweeted in the Rolling Stones singer’s direction on Thursday, after news broke that Jagger had become a father for the eighth time, at age 73.
Calling the news “disturbing,” Parsons also snarkily insinuated that Jagger is a cradle robber.
“Deeply disturbing that Mick Jagger, 73, has had a baby with Melanie Hamrick, 29,” Parsons wrote. “How can this possibly work? She’s far too old for him.”

News broke Thursday that Jagger’s girlfriend, 29-year-old ballet dancer Melanie Hamrick, had given birth to a boy, bringing the “Satisfaction” singer’s offspring count to eight.
“Melanie Hamrick and Mick Jagger’s son was born today in New York and they are both delighted,” a spokeswoman for Jagger told TheWrap in a statement on Thursday. “Mick was at the hospital for the arrival. Mother and baby are doing well and we request that the media respect their privacy at this time.”
Apparently Parsons didn’t get the same statement.
Jagger, who turned 73 in July, has seven other children, the oldest being daughter Karis Hunt Jagger, age 45. He and his ex-girlfriend Jerry Hall have four children, including son James, who starred in HBO’s short-lived series “Vinyl,” which Jagger executive-produced.
The singer also has five grandchildren, and a great-granddaughter.
Jagger and Hamrick have been dating since 2014.
