Story of the sixth Stone: Pallenberg was born in German-occupied Rome to Italian artist father and German secretary mother.

She was working on a modelling assignment in Munich where she met The Rolling Stones original band member Brian Jones in 1965 in Stones concert. After meeting she moved to London to live with Jones. Pallenberg's and Jones's flat was the hot spot of the swinging London where all their friends such as other Stones members and Marianne Faithfull would gather up to listen music and take psychedelic drugs. However Pallenberg's and Jones's relationship was very turbulent and got violent after getting involved more with drugs. Pallenberg left Jones for Stones other member Keith Richards, in 1967. She and Richards had three children, Marlon 1969, Dandelion 1972 and Tara 1976. Tara died only at the age of 10 weeks. Anita is also said to have had an affair with Stones singer Mick Jagger in 1970 during filming movie "Performance". Pallenberg has said it was only  "method acting". Pallenberg has been called the sixth member of the Rolling Stones due to her close connection to the band. Her relantionship with Richards ended 1980. Pallenberg has stated Scott Cantrell incident was last drop in their relantionship. In 1979 17-year-old Cantrell shot himslef in the head in Richards New York house. Cantrell had been employed as a part-time groundkeeper at the Richards estate and was involved sexually with Pallenberg. Richards was in Paris when the teen killed himself in Pallenberg's bed. Pallenberg was in the house during fatal shot and was arrested, but she was later cleared of any charges. Death was ruled suicide despite rumours that Pallenberg and Cantrell had been playing Russian roulette. During her time with Richards Anita was very much involved with heroin and black magic. After splitting up with Richards and quitting drugs she studied fashion design in London in the 90's.
