The row between the Rolling Stones and Donald Trump has escalated into a bitter legal dispute

Lawyers for both the band and Trump have been firing off legal letters “back and forth” for five months with no resolution in sight.

The dispute started back in May when Trump walked out for his Indiana primary victory speech to Start Me Up.

The Stones said at the time they had “never given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs”.

They requested he “cease all use immediately.”

But then Trump closed out the Republican National Convention with You Can’t Always Get What You Want, in July. Brown Sugar has also been used.

The rockers then issued a second statement, saying: “The Rolling Stones do not endorse Donald Trump.

“You Can’t Always Get What You Want was used without the band’s permission.”
