Keith Richards and Anita Pallenberg once exchanged clothes, granddaughter says

Keith Richards and Anita Pallenberg once exchanged clothes, their niece has revealed.

lla Richards said the Rolling Stones musician-songwriter was a “quiet and shy” grandfather as she opened up about her family life.

The model told Tatler magazine: “‘Most of the people in my family are a bit crazy and crazy or weird. They borrow each other’s clothes.

“My grandfather used to wear my grandmother’s clothes, and she used to wear his.”

Pallenberg, Richards’ former partner, died at the age of 75 in June 2017 after a long illness.

She was once considered the Rolling Stones muse and was also a model and actress who appeared in the avant-garde crime film Performance with Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger, and the sci-fi classic Barbarella.

She and Richards have two sons: Marlon – Ella’s father – and Tara Jo Jo, and a daughter, Angela. Tara Jo Jo died of sudden infant death syndrome at the age of two months in 1976.

Ella Richards also said: “(Keith) is very quiet, sweet and lovable. He’s a lot more shy than people think.

“My dad is noisier. You can definitely feel his presence in a room. He’s very smart.

“He knows everything about everything. He has read every book ever. So you really can’t beat him.

The Rolling Stones returned to Hyde Park in London last summer for the British Summer Time festival.

The band said at the time it was their fifth concert in the royal park and their 203rd performance in London.

Ella Richards added: “I was exhausted just watching.

“They have high levels of adrenaline and it keeps them young. It’s inspiring that they keep doing what they love, for as long as they can.”

She has been with Kate Moss Agency since 2019 after following her mother, former model and stylist Lucie de la Falaise, into the fashion world.

She added: “My teachers would describe me as a dreamer.

“I always get in trouble for that. I’m not loud or disruptive. I just want to dream.

“My whole family are crazy creators. Nobody is academic. Everyone is wild and free-spirited.

She also talked about being photographed by her boyfriend, photographer Sascha Von Bismarck, brother of Count Nikolai von Bismarck, Moss’s partner.

“It was easy,” says Richards. I felt very comfortable when he took pictures of me, it was a very personal thing.

“I’m sure I can be a bit bossy at times because that’s the only time I have control. So I’m sure I annoy him more than I thought!
