Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has hit back at claims by his ex-wife Jerry Hall that he was "tight" with money.
Mick Jagger met Jerry Hall in the early 1970s
Hall, who has four children with Jagger, said in an interview with the Evening Standard that he was "pretty tight with the day to day stuff".
But Jagger told The Times he found her remarks "absurd".
"I have always paid all expenses for the children as well as the lion's share of the costs relating to her lifestyle," he told the newspaper.
He added he had been "more than happy to do so".
Hall has appeared in several stage plays
The couple's marriage was annulled in 1999. The pair wed in a Hindu ceremony nine years earlier but it was considered void in English law.
Jagger is due to start rehearsals for the Stones' summer tour shortly.
Hall is set to appear in Eve Ensler's play The Vagina Monologues at The Mayflower Theatre in Southampton.
