Anita Pallenberg, the actress, model and one-time girlfriend of both Keith Richards and Brian Jones has died, the Guardian reports. But her relationship with Jones, who became abusive, only lasted two years.

Her passing was formally announced via social media by her close friend Stella Schnabel who is the daughter of the celebrated American painter and filmmaker Julian Schnabel. You showed about life and myself and how to grow and become and exist with it all. In Richards' autobiography, Life, he writes of Pallenberg, "I like a high-spirited woman".

Anita's death was reported after her friend, actress Stella Schnabel, posted a photo and accompanying message on Instagram.

Pallenberg battled drug addiction for much of her life but said in 2014 that she had been sober from drugs for 14 years.

Pallenberg really earned her sixth-Stone stripes with her star turn in the 1970 film Performance, an essential part of the band's mythos. "I can say, 'I love you, I just won't live with you.' And we're now proud grandparents, which we never thought we'd ever see".

She met former Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones in 1965. Anita couldn't resist Mick Jagger's charm as well, so she was also alleged to have had an affair with him too. She split from Richards in 1980.
