Sir Mick Jagger has come under fire from L'Wren Scott's relatives for filing an insurance claim for losses on the Rolling Stones' tour following her death.

The band cancelled a number of shows in Australia and New Zealand after Jagger's longtime partner committed suicide in March (14) and they have now returned to the region to play the postponed gigs.

The rockers are currently embroiled in a legal spat with their insurance company after underwriters rejected their $12 million (£7.5 million) claim for loss of earnings over the axed gigs, but Scott's sister, Jan Shane, has accused the stars of "opening up old wounds".

Her husband Rob tells, "We just can't believe Mick's doing what he's doing. Jan is trying to put it all behind her, it's a really troubling part of her life losing her sister, and he's in a legal battle with some insurers. (Jagger) doesn't need the money, I laughed when the insurance company turned down his claim... In a way, I'm not surprised he's doing it. The guy is just unbelievable. I read that he's claiming $12.7 million due to the cancellation of the tour and I can't understand that. L'Wren left her entire estate to him and that was valued around the same amount."
