After Mr. Jennings' death, Miss Richards wrote on Facebook: “I lay awake for hours thinking about the past 48 hours.

"I will not be hypocritical because my friends and family know that Dominic and I have been separated for over 10 years and not on pleasant terms, but my heart is breaking for one of my closest friends, Koo Violet, and for my goddaughter Chay.

"We have been friends for years and have always supported each other and she always stuck to me. Dominic was a son, a brother and an uncle. My condolences to his family and friends. "

Miss Richards was known as the "baby who almost broke the stones" after Richards accused Mick Jagger of being her father at a time when both men and Miss Pallenberg were heavy heroin users. She was brought up by her grandparents – Richard's parents Doris and Bert – in Dartford, Kent, because her mother was too drug addict to care for her.

Ms. Pallenberg died in 2017.
