|Birth name||Amanda Louise Smith|
|Also known as||Mandy|
|Born||17 July 1970|
In 1983, when Smith was only 13 years old, a relationship began between her and 47-year-old Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman. In a 2010 interview with the Daily Mail, Smith claimed to have started a sexual relationship with Wyman at just 14. Smith married Wyman in 1989; they divorced in 1991.
In 1986, Smith was to be interviewed on Irish TV show Saturday Live, but cancelled when broadcaster RTÉ decided she would be interviewed from a seat in the audience rather than on the set. RTÉ said she was "not important enough" and that she might "give a bad example to young teenage girls". The story appeared in the international media.
On 19 June 1993, she married footballer Pat Van Den Hauwe, but this only lasted two years. She published her biography It's All Over Now in 1993. In 2001, she was briefly engaged to Vanity Fair fashion model Ian Mosby with whom she had a son, Max Harrison Mosby. Smith is currently a resident of Manchester where she has now become a teetotaller and vegan. Smith was raised as a Catholic and, in recent years, has returned to the church.
Having tried a career as a make-up artist, Smith was reported in 2009 to be training to be a counsellor. In the 1990s, Smith wrote a beauty/fashion column for a magazine; since 2012 she has written an advice column for a Christian lifestyle magazine.
