Sure, love don't cost a thing. Mick Jagger's love letters, on the other hand, certainly fetch a pretty penny.

Emotionally charged letters that the Rolling Stones frontman wrote to ex-flame Marsha Hunt sold for a staggering $301,000 at auction Wednesday—almost double the $159,000 they were originally expected to nab.

The 10 notes date back to 1969 and touch on everything from the death of Stones guitarist Brian Jones to Jagger's affair with Marianne Faithfull, whom he was also dating then.

Hunt, an American singer with whom the rocker had his first child, had previously said that "the letters speak for Mick at an incredible juncture of our lives," but she also admitted she was unloading them because "I'm broke."

The Stones are on the final leg of their 50th-anniversary tour, which will wrap up this weekend in New Jersey and include appearances by Lady Gaga and Bruce Springsteen.

Here's what else went down:

Trouble Videos: Check out Taylor Swift's music video for "I Knew You Were Trouble"...and Selena Gomez posted a clip of her and friends dancing to the hit, too!
