The Rolling Stones have settled a multi-million dollar insurance claim over the shows they cancelled in the aftermath of the death of Sir Mick Jagger's girlfriend L'Wren Scott.

The band became embroiled in a legal dispute with their insurance company when underwriters refused to pay out the $12 million (£7.5 million) claim for loss of earnings over the gigs in Australia and New Zealand that were called off following the fashion designer's suicide in March (14).

The stand-off triggered a lawsuit from the band and a court showdown in the U.S. as insurers probed the details of the case, with court documents revealing Jagger had been diagnosed with a stress disorder after his partner's death.

It has now emerged the dispute has been settled, and a spokesman for Jagger has issued a statement insisting the veteran rocker was devastated by the release of his medical information.

The representative tells Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper, "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 U.S. 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. No further comment will be made about this matter."

The band is currently on tour in Australia, playing the rescheduled shows Down Under.
