Actor Weber Was Stones' Drug Mule

The depths of the ROLLING STONES' drug-fuelled 1971 recording sessions in the South of France have been exposed by the eight year old who was used as a drug mule just so KEITH RICHARDS could give bandmate MICK JAGGER cocaine as a wedding gift.
Actor Jake Weber, who plays Patricia Arquette's husband in hit TV drama Medium, has spoken out about his weird summer with the Stones when he was just a kid.
The Meet Joe Black star's late father, socialite Tommy Weber, was among the men charged with getting drugs for the Stones while the rockers worked on their Exile on Main Street album at Richards' French retreat - and his young sons joined the party in their 1971 summer holidays.
Now Weber has revealed he was used as a drug mule for the Stones - and once walked through customs with cocaine strapped to his body.
The actor tells U.S. publication the Globe, "I knew what was going on with the drugs and sex. You would have to be blind not to see it."
Weber reveals he and his six-year-old brother both helped their dad smuggle drugs into France - so Keith Richards could give cocaine to Mick Jagger as a wedding gift when he married model wife Bianca.
The actor adds, "It was pretty outrageous, even by the debauched standards of the Rolling Stones. To use kids as drug mules takes some doing.
"My brother and I never drank or did drugs, but we would dance around the room to Brown Sugar while everyone else got stoned."
