For a man who’s dated the likes of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Helena Christensen, we can probably assume Simply Red’s frontman didn’t have TOO much trouble luring in the ladies.
But despite claims he used to sleep with three women A DAY, we would NEVER have guessed Mick Hucknall’s romantic back catalogue to have THIS many issues.
No offence or anything.
But seriously, 1000 women must be pretty time consuming.
YES WE DID SAY ONE THOUSAND.
Speaking to The Telegraph, the 54-year-old was quizzed about whether rumours he’d actually reached that astonishing milestone were true, to which he answered: “It probably is.”
He added: “I’ve not denied that but I never claimed it. I never bragged about it. I don’t keep count. I’ve no idea, but I would think over a 25-year period that’s probably reasonable to say.
“But do I want to say it? No. It’s not what makes me tick. I don’t put chips on the bedpost.”
Fair enough – he is happily married now, after all.
After forming Simply Red almost 30 years ago, Mick became extremely popular with the female population, which soon led to claims of sex addiction.
He revealed: “It’s like kids in a candy store. You can’t believe it. There’s girls chasing you all the time – it’s incredible. When you’re 24 you don’t give a toss.
“You’re invincible. You can do anything. Your mind is set in a way that the world is just ready and you’re just going to take it all. You’re just going to have a grand time.”
The winner takes it all etc etc.
Mick admitted that he “always got on well with girls,” but explained that thanks to his father supposedly not having the gift of the gab, and his relationship with the girls he grew up with slowly weakening, he went on to have “absolutely no social skills.
“I even struggle a bit now. I don’t know how to communicate in a conciliatory way where you don’t say what you think is true, but you say what you think that person would like to hear to make them like you.
“It’s actually been something, incredibly, I’ve only discovered since having a child.”
He’s now extremely happy with wife Gabriella Westberry and their daughter Romy, 7 – so happy, that he admitted them to be part of the reasoning behind Simply Red’s split, as he didn’t want to miss the important first years of Romy’s life by touring.
He said: “It’s been wonderful.” CUTE
Simply Red are set for a 30 year reunion next year – is it okay to say we’re excited?
Well, our mum is anyway.
