Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has taken aim at the band’s former accountant for detailing the rockers’ income and spending habits in a new book.

Prince Rupert Loewenstein, who spent nearly 40 years as the group’s trusted financial adviser, has written about his work with the musicians in a new memoir called “A Prince Among Stones.”

In the book, he reveals how the rockers became tax exiles in France in a bid to protect their fortune and details a bitter feud between the band and a former manager.

He even writes about Jagger’s high-profile divorce from his wife Bianca, and described his role as “combination of bank manager, psychiatrist and nanny.”

However, Jagger has issued a scathing criticism of his former colleague, insisting he should have kept quiet. He tells Britain’s Mail on Sunday newspaper, “Call me old fashioned, but I don’t think your ex-bank manager should be discussing your financial dealings and personal information in public. It just goes to show that well brought-up people don’t always display good manners.”
