As Jamie Hince reportedly cosies up to the Canadian model after a gig, here's everything we know about her
In pictures published by The Sun, he can be seen getting close with Canadian model Jessica Stam, 29. The pics will no doubt come as a blow to Kate, who was seen still wearing her wedding ring earlier this week.
In the pictures, Jamie, 46, appears to be cuddling with Jessica outside the Kibitz Room in West Hollywood, after playing a gig with his band The Kills.
But who exactly is his rumoured new love interest? Here’s what we know about Jessica Stam.
She’s modelled for Victoria’s Secret.
Jessica has been a Victoria’s Secret Angel three times – in 2006, 2007 and 2010. Her career actually began way back in 2001, though, when she was discovered aged 15 outside a local donut shop in her native Canada.
She’s that model who fell over
A YouTube clip of Jessica tripping over on the catwalk in a pair of super-high heels in 2006 has been watched over a million times. If you’re not one of those million viewers…
She dated Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers
When she was 20, she began a romance with the Chili Peppers frontman, who was 43 at the time.
She’s not afraid of the #nomakeupselfie
Her Instagram is full of snaps of her looking fresh-faced and doing very model things like hanging out on yachts.
She’s doing very well for herself
In 2007, when she was just 21, Forbes named her the world’s fifteenth highest-paid model – she bagged a cool $1.5 million the previous year.
Marc Jacobs named a bag after her
If you were a Noughties kid, you almost definitely had a knock-off Stam bag – a quilted handbag with a chunky chain detail. It became an ‘it’ bag immediately after its release in 2005, but in sad news for retro fashion lovers, it was discontinued in 2013.
She’s a fan of The Kills
She posted a pic on her Instagram almost two months ago of Jamie’s bandmate Alison Mosshart’s solo single artwork, so it’s possible that she’s known Jamie for a while.
There’s no word from Kate, Jamie or Jessica on the split, so only time will tell how this one plays out.
