    Default 'My violent father beat us so viciously it broke bones,' reveals Jerry Hall

    Jerry Hall has talked of her violent childhood in which her alcoholic, drug-addicted father beat her and her four sisters so viciously that it "broke bones".


    The 51-year-old ex-supermodel said former U.S. Army sergeant John Hall would "burst into rages" when he returned to their modest home.
    "He would talk to us like soldiers. He was very imaginative in his insults and that is hard to get over."

    Still fabulous at fifty-something: Jerry Hall is writing an autobiography




    Miss Hall, former wife of Mick Jagger, was brought up in the industrial town of Mesquite, Texas. Her father was a truck driver who longed for a son, which is why he gave his daughters boys' names.
    The youngest were Jerry Faye and her twin sister Terry Jaye.
    "I'm not trying to be vindictive but he certainly gave us a hard time," Miss Hall told an interviewer on Irish radio.
    "He was very violent. He had to drive explosive chemicals across the country and took uppers (chemical stimulants) and would come home and beat us five girls. He broke bones.
    "He had a terrible upbringing and his father drank and his mother died when he was a baby - you try to understand why someone became so violent."
    Miss Hall says that the strain of combat drove her father to drink and violence.
    "Horrible things happened to my father. He had to release people from a prison of war camp and found 18,000 dead bodies. It is a terrible thing to be living in fear and he would abuse us verbally too."

    The former model recently landed a 1million deal with publisher HarperCollins to write an autobiography to be released in autumn next year.

    "Writing about it is very cathartic," she told her interviewer. "I think my mother was embarrassed about it. Why didn't she protect us or leave? She had five of us and she needed a home and food, and she loved him."
    At the age of 16, Miss Hall fled home and bought a one-way ticket to Paris, determined to break into the modelling scene.
    "I turned up pretty rough, chewing gum and reading comics," she recalled. However, she soon became one of the world's top catwalk models, working for Yves Saint Laurent and posing as a mermaid for the cover of the Roxy Music album Siren.
    She became close to the group's singer, Bryan Ferry, but left him for Mick Jagger.
    They had four children, Elizabeth, James, Georgia May and Gabriel, but broke up after Jagger got Brazilian model Luciana Morad pregnant.
    "Mick is a very good father just not a very good husband," said Miss Hall, whose own father died of cancer in 1977.
    "He just slept with every single girl that came around. It was quite tiring rushing home making sure he wasn't sleeping with someone."
    Miss Hall still lives with the children on Richmond Hill, West London. Her modelling career has waned in recent years and she has turned her hand to writing poetry and stage acting.
    Sir Mick lives with long-term girlfriend L'Wren Scott in London and at his other homes around the world. On her current situation, Miss Hall concluded: "Love is a magical thing, but it hasn't really happened to me in that I don't want to get married. I'm not going to get married again. I feel I kind of did that."

    An Army sergeant?... I know from first-hand experience that military men are really... yes... off, to say the least. My father was like that, except he would never have done something that would have shown on me, like beating me...

    I don't know what her dad went throughbut it sounds like maybe he had PSTD and took out his anger on his kids.

    Her dad sounds like a brainwashed Marine that couldn't leave it in the field. Jackass.
