Sir Mick Jagger - Mick Jagger's Ex Wants Brazilian Soccer Fans To Stop 'Bullying' Rocker

Sir Mick Jagger's former lover has called on World Cup soccer fans in her native Brazil to stop "bullying" the veteran rocker after he was dubbed a bad luck charm for appearing to always support the losing team.

The Rolling Stones frontman was cheering on Brazil from the stands of the Mineirao stadium in Belo Horizonte on Tuesday (08Jul14), when the host nation suffered a humiliating 7-1 defeat at the hands of Germany.

It has since been noted that Jagger had previously voiced his support for Italy at a show in Rome last month (Jun14), when he claimed the team would advance from the group stage, only for them to lose to Uruguay and bow out of the competition.

He then allegedly told fans in Lisbon that he was backing Portugal to advance to the knock-out round, but again, they failed to make it and now his triple bout of bad luck has prompted some soccer-mad devotees to dub Jagger "pe frio", which loosely translates as "the jinx".

A number of fans have even taken to holding up cardboard cut-outs of the singer wearing the opposing team's kit at matches in a bid to will their favourite team to victory, according to Britain's DailyMail.co.uk.

However, Jagger's Brazilian ex-girlfriend, Luciana Giminez, has now urged critics to stop directing harsh comments at the 70-year-old rock star.

In a post on Instagram.com, she wrote, "I would like to ask you guys who do this kind of bullying to think before you do it. Even though it only seems like a small thing, Mick is a person like us all, and he does not deserve to be treated this way by Brazilians".

Jagger had attended the Brazil-Germany game with his and Giminez's 15-year-old son, Lucas.
