Rolling Stones - Bill Wyman Turned Himself In To Police Over Underage Sex Reports

Former Rolling Stones rocker Bill Wyman turned himself in to police after reports emerged suggesting he began a sexual relationship with his second wife when she was 14 years old.

The rocker began dating Mandy Smith when she was aged just 13 and they wed in 1989, when she was 18 years old, but split two years later. Several years ago, Smith suggested the couple first had sex when she was just 14, two years below the U.K.'s age of consent, and Wyman has now revealed he subsequently turned himself in to police.

He spoke to cops and prosecutors about the claims, but the authorities decided against taking the case any further.

Wyman tells Britain's Seven magazine, "I went to the police and I went to the public prosecutor and said, 'Do you want to talk to me? Do you want to meet up with me, or anything like that?' and I got a message back, 'No'. I was totally open about it."

He adds of his relationship with Smith, "It was very emotional and special at the time. It wasn't how it was reported to be and it was the only time it ever happened in my life. A lot of people understood, but a lot didn't, and the media certainly didn't. They treated me like crap... We all have a skeleton in the cupboard, it's just if you're (a) taxi driver in Halifax no one ever hears about it. But if you are (a) celebrity everyone does. In my case it was publicised to the world and that wasn't really fair, I don't think."

Wyman went on to marry his third wife, Suzanne, in 1993.
