The Rolling Stones have returned to performing following the death of Mick Jagger's girlfriend, L'Wren Scott, in March and it appears the frontman has also returned to the dating scene.
The rocker was recently photographed cozying up to a mystery brunette on the balcony of his hotel in Zurich, causing fans to wonder whether the 70-year-old has moved on from the suicide of his long-time partner.
One person who's not happy about the new photos: L'Wren's sister Jan Shane, who was estranged from the fashion designer at the time of her death.
"And people wonder why L'Wren was so depressed," Jan told U.K.'s The Mirror about Mick's recent tryst.
"[It makes] me really wonder what [he's] thinking and feeling. His daughter says that he is still heartbroken and so devastated about losing my sister...And then you see these photos. He will never change."
Friends of Mick's say this is simply his way of grieving. "Some men drown their sorrow in drink. Mick doesn’t drink much but he drowns his sorrows in women," one friend revealed.

Another added, "This is how he deals with things, even in his 70s...Through good times and bad, the thing that never changes is Mick’s love for women. Sex is like a coping mechanism for him."
Reports say the lead singer met his female companion at a Zurich nightclub following one of the band's gigs and fully intended their interaction on the balcony to be photographed.
"He doesn’t do anything by accident," a source told The Mirror, adding the rendezvous was "to show he's back in business."
