How Many Children Does Keith Richards Have?

According to The New York Times, Anita Pallenberg and Keith Richards began dating in 1967. Their relationship began after Richards rescued Pallenberg from being assaulted by her boyfriend at the time, fellow Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones. She and Jones had been a couple for two years and the relationship was marked with violence, though Pallenberg did not take the abuse lying down. In his memoir, “Life” (quoted by The Times), Richards recalled Pallenberg being tough enough to fight Jones, saying, “every time they had a fight, Brian would come out bandaged and bruised.”

Pallenberg ran in circles with artists and writers such as Andy Warhol and Amiri Baraka (formerly known as LeRoi Jones) before meeting the Stones. She jokingly referred to herself as “a hanger on.” Still, Richards saw her as a talented artist in her own right and the pair would have three children together. Cheat Sheet reports that their first child, a son named Marlon, was born in 1969, and three years later, they had a daughter, whom they named Angela. Unfortunately, in 1976, the couple’s third child, another boy named Tara, would die two months after his birth from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

Pallenberg was addicted to drugs during their relationship. She said after co-starring in a 1970 film with the Rolling Stone’s singer, Mick Jagger, that she became addicted to heroin. In 1977, she and Richards both entered rehab following his arrest for heroin possession in Toronto. Pallenberg would pass away in 2017 from complications of hepatitis C.
