The family of L’Wren Scott is claiming that the late fashion designer’s partner Mick Jagger has broken a pact made over her death, according to reports.

The fashion designer was found dead in her New York apartment in March and news broke yesterday that The Rolling Stones are facing a legal battle for insurance money relating to cancelled gigs.

The underwriters have received permission to seek more information on L’Wren’s cause of death, however, according to The Sun, this has left her family “heartbroken”.

A source tells the paper: “The family and Mick made a pact at the time of her funeral not to air any dirty linen in public and allow L’Wren to rest in peace.

“Now they think her name will be dragged through the mud over an insurance claim. It is a kick in the teeth.”

The Rolling Stones postponed seven concerts in Australia and New Zealand following L’Wren’s shock death, when Mick was diagnosed with “acute traumatic stress disorder”.

Mick and his bandmates are believed to have taken out a group policy which would pay out if any gigs had to be cancelled due to the death of family members, including L’Wren.

However, underwriters have stated that the designer may have had a pre-existing condition which could invalidate the policy and have been granted permission to find more information on L’Wren’s mental health.

The Sun adds that insurers are reportedly questioning Mick’s diagnosis, amid claims that he did not see a psychiatrist.

In May, The Rolling Stones performed for the first time since L’Wren’s death, taking to the stage in Oslo.

They have since resumed their tour Down Under, though one date was postponed again as Mick was suffering from a throat infection.
