but then there was this exquisitely beautiful, older woman, to me because she was probably twenty-nine or thirty and I was maybe twenty or twenty-one. She had her colorful, alien, superfreak look, but beyond that she was just very East German. Just a radiant lady and I fell in love with her at that moment…
She had this crazy thick accent and she was all colourful… That was also the beginning of a romance that sparked up for a little while.
She taught me a lot about life at a young, tender age…
So I basically fell in in love and had sex with my first fan.” ‘Fandemonium’ by David Mushegain with forward by Anthony Kiedis; pages 15-16 The relationship might not have lasted that long but it led to a long lasting legacy for all Red Hot Chili Peppers’ fans as Nina’s attitude inspired Anthony and provided the inspiration for ‘Give It Away’ when she gave him a much loved jacket: Aged only 20 when the pair went out, Kiedis had been impressed by Hagen’s principal that the more she gave away, the more she would always receive.” ‘Red Hot Chili Peppers: Inside the Veins of The Velvet Glove’ by Martin Roach“Anthony was running with East German punk chanteuse Nina Hagen, a legitimate superstar.
Anthony was seen a few times with Marina Garpow, a Michigan native, between between June and early September 2016.
They haven’t been seen together recently so it’s assumed the relationship is over although Marina was backstage with a group of family & friends at RHCP’s 2017 Detroit concert.
She was out with the band at the very beginning of their 2017 tour and was photographed with him in January.
Fortunately, I was given a reprieve from this quest at the age of seventeen, when I fell in love for the first time.They stayed in NYC together at the Bowery Hotel and she also visited him in his Malibu home as well as joining RHCP on tour a few times e.g. There were several tabloid articles at the time showing photos of her and AK.For everyone commenting on the balcony photos in the comments below: I can’t add photos in the comments so will put them here.Many comments were made about how similar she looked to Anthony Kiedis’s previous girlfriend, Helena Vestergaard- the press had issues telling them apart at first and news stories were run referring to Wanessa as Helena.She first appeared with Kiedis at a fashion show in NYC during fashion week in mid-February 2015 and was seen with him a couple of times after that but the relationship seems to have fizzled out by mid-March 2015 which is the last time they were photographed together.
