MÖTLEY CRÜE Guitarist's 24-Year-Old Girlfriend: 'I Am Totally In Love'

MÖTLEY CRÜE guitarist Mick Mars' Swiss girlfriend, 24-year-old former Miss Zürich contestant Seraina Schönenberger, has spoken to Blick magazine about her relationship with the man she calls her "soulmate."


Schönenberger met Mars, 57, at a June 2007 MÖTLEY CRÜE concert in Switzerland and the couple has been virtually inseparable ever since.

"It was love at first sight," she told Blick before adding, "You never know, maybe someday we will actually get married."

Schönenberger appears in MÖTLEY CRÜE's new video for the song "Saints of Los Angeles" (see below) and has been traveling with the band on their current "Crüe Fest" summer tour.

"I am totally in love," she said about the guitarist who suffers from the degenerative bone disease ankylosing spondylitis. "[He is] the man of my life. . . We are the perfect couple."

Mars filed a lawsuit against former girlfriend Robbie Mantooth (Photo#1, Photo#2) in Los Angeles Superior Court in November 2006, alleging that she breached the terms of a settlement of a palimony suit between the former couple. The Calabasas resident is asking for unspecified punitive damages and attorneys' fees.

Mars was diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) when he was 19 and he told Blender magazine in a recent interview that the disease has left him unable to move his head.

"If I could go places I would, but I'm stuck," he said. "This stuff I have won't allow me to move my head, so I can't drive. It's quite an inconvenience."

In the same interview, Mars revealed that his condition is shrinking him.

"This AS crap has shrunk me down really small," he said. "I used to be almost five-foot-nine, and I'm just a little over five-three now. It stinks... I'm just squashed."
