Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger may have "shot himself in the foot" by claiming he never married Jerry Hall, says a divorce specialist. Attorney Mark Stephens says the English courts are unlikely to give credence to Jagger's claim that his 1990 Indonesian marriage to Hall is not legally valid, in that while the Hindu part of the ceremony may have been completed, the civil part was not. "I think Mick Jagger will get pretty short shrift from the judiciary in this country, and they'll not like it," Stephens said on the British Broadcasting Corp.'s morning news show. Due to a two-day national holiday in Indonesia on Tuesday and Wednesday, marriage records were not immediately accessible.
