According to Keno:

"Miss Amanda Jones" is another fine number and written about Brian's then girlfriend Anita Pallenberg, with some fine guitar weaving between Keith and Brian.

er ... Keno gets a lot of things wrong. the lyric is quite straightforwardly about a debutante,
which is not a role that Anita Pallenberg every resembled.

No,the Sicilian ,I don't think so.

Amanda Jones was IMO a kind of joke between "Jones "(the real name of David Bowie ,with whom she slept with ) , Amanda Lear (she wasn't famous yet with the name "Lear" at this time )& Brian Jones .

Urban legend or not ?

Check this interview of Amanda Lear ,at 2.23 .
It's in French ,but here is the translation:
"You're only one of the 2 or 3 women the Stones wrote a song about .
Amanda Lear :"yes ,the others are dead "

I am a Frenchie ,as Mick affectionately called them in the Old Grey Whistle Test in 1977 .

From Wiki:

While clubbing with Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones and her then boyfriend, the Guinness heir Tara Browne, in a Parisian nightspot named Le Castel in late 1965, she was, again according to her official biography, introduced to a man that was to change her life, on many levels according to some. The man was none other than the eccentric Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dalí, the self-proclaimed enfant terrible in the world of art, at the time some forty years her senior. Dalí was not only struck by Lear's looks but also saw a kindred spirit in her; Lear has since described their close and unconventional relationship as a "spiritual marriage".

Although she remained Dalí's confidante, protegée and mistress all through the Sixties and Seventies, Lear was also romantically linked to Brian Jones, which resulted in the ironic Rolling Stones track "Miss Amanda Jones", included on 1967 album Between the Buttons.

It claims that she had not hooked up with Bowie until about 1973.

Amanda Jones, 109, the daughter of a man born into slavery, has lived a life long enough
to touch three centuries. And after voting consistently as a Democrat for 70 years,
she has voted early for the country’s first black presidential nominee.
