Keith Richards' ex son-in-law Dominic Jennings dies just days after he was accused of looking up kids’ skirts
Dominic Jennings, former son-in-law of 'Rolling Stone' guitarist Keith Richards, has died after he was hit by a train. Jennings, 45, passed away after the accident which took place just two days after he was accused of trying to look up girls' skirts in a park. He was also arrested for the same. Prior to the tragedy, Jennings had been married to Richards' daughter Angela aka Dandelion for 15 years.
It has been said that the incident took place on the line between Havant in Hampshire and Barnham in West Sussex. The British Transport Police confirmed that they had been called to the Chicester train station after reports of a casualty on the tracks. Paramedics said that Jennings was pronounced dead at the scene. A spokesperson revealed, "the incident is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner."
Earlier, Jennings was allegedly confronted by locals in Bognor Regis for 'trying to look up little girls' skirts' and 'coax them away from their parents' in a park. Social media posts that have since been deleted had stated, "Old man sat watching the children for over half an hour, was then seen trying to look up little girls' skirts and trying to coax them away from their parents and over to him.
"I confronted him, he then moved to a group of teenage girls at the other end of the park telling them how hot and sexy they were. Myself and a mum from the park confronted him again asking if he knew any of the children and what was he doing? He stumbled some b******* about knowing it was wrong. We then told him we were calling the police, he then rode off before the police arrived," the post had revealed.
However, a friend of Jennings said that the situation would have been a "misunderstanding" and that he would have been "goaded" into an argument. While speaking to The Sun, the friend, Robin Clapton said, "People are vile, on some self-appointed moral crusade."
"He hadn’t had a haircut for a long time because of lockdown and was starting to look a bit disheveled. He never, ever, ever displayed any inclination towards young children," Clapton shared. "If he had a problem, he would speak to one of us about it. He didn’t have those kinds of problems," he continued.
After Angela and Jennings broke up, the latter went on to work as a carpenter. "Dom was a very popular guy. He had had a great life hanging out and touring with the Stones," Clapton revealed. In light of the recent tragedy, Angela took to Facebook to share how the family had tried hard to support Jennings. She wrote, "I wasn't going to comment but unfortunately he has been on a downward slope for the last 15 years. I know his family has desperately tried to help but he hasn't accepted it. It's a shame it has come to this all over social media but he is not the man you all once knew. I must add I meant for his drink and drug problems."
