Rolling Stones rocker Bill Wyman asked to see Jimmy Savile Operation Yewtree police over his relationship with a teenage girl!

Bill, who was in the Stone from 1962 until 1993, volunteered to talk to the police about his relationship with his second wife Mandy Smith, who, it’s been alleged, Bill first had a sexual relationship with when she was 14 years old.
Bill, who’s now 76, said, “I went to the police and I went to the public prosecutor and said: ‘Do you want to talk to me?’ and I got a message back: ‘No.’
“I was totally open about it.”
“They were said to have started dating after meeting in a nightclub when she was just 13. And Mandy later said she had sex with him when she was only 14.
