PRODUCERS have pulled a documentary about rock legend Bill Wyman amid allegations that he had sex with his now-wife when she was just 14.

Wyman, now 82, met second wife Mandy Smith when she was just 13 and he was 47 – allegedly going on to sleep with her a year later.

They married when she turned 18 in 1989, but split up in 1991.

A spokesman for Sheffield Doc Fest announced they had pulled the screening of The Quiet One, a documentary about Wyman’s life in rock.

Initial reports of his involvement sparked outrage from attendees – many of whom hit out on Facebook.

One user said the decision to involve him was “disgusting, embarrassing, disappointing”.

In 2013, Wyman claimed he had been “open” about the incident – and had even handed himself in to cops for questioning.


He said: “We all have a skeleton in the cupboard, it’s just if you’re a taxi driver in Halifax no one ever hears about it.

“But if you are celebrity every one does. In my case it was publicised to the world and that wasn’t really fair, I don’t think.”

The Quiet One is due to premiere at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival on 2 May.
