The Rolling Stones have settled their multimillion-pound claim with insurers over a number of cancelled shows following the death of Sir Mick Jagger's girlfriend - but say they are "deeply upset" about confidential details entering the public domain.
Court documents filed in the US suggested Jagger suffered "acute traumatic stress disorder" following L'Wren Scott's suicide in March.
A spokesman for Jagger said:
We are deeply upset that confidential medical and other private information about members of the band and their immediate family and loved ones has entered the public domain as a result of a US court filing initiated by insurers four weeks ago.
This was done without the knowledge of the band or reference to their legal representatives.
This has only been discovered and reported in the press in the last week, by which time we are pleased to say the insurers and the Rolling Stones had,in fact, settled the insurance claim.
The Stones are said to have taken out a £15 million insurance policy in case of any shows being cancelled due to the death of family members.
However, insurance underwriters were said to have disputed the claim on the basis that Miss Scott may have been suffering from a mental illness, meaning her death may not be covered by the policy.

An ancient swamp-dwelling pig has been named after Mick Jagger by scientists due to its 'large, sensitive lips.'
Ellen Miller, who was part of the team that discovered the fossils said: “I like the Rolling Stones, I’m a huge Stones fan.”
Which is why the creature, which is believed to have been about the size of a deer, is now known by the scientific name Jaggermeryx naida, or ‘Jagger’s water nymph.’
Professor Miller uncovered several fossilised jaw fragments belonging to the animal at a remote site in the Egyptian desert. The area was swamp land millions of years ago when the pig roamed the Earth.
Sir Mick is yet to comment on the dubious honour.
