Meanwhile, Marilyn Wilson-Rutherford, the first wife of the Beach Boys co-founder, has sued the musician over a deal he recently struck for the royalties of a number of Beach Boys songs.
Wilson agreed to a reported $50million (£38.1million) deal with Universal Music Publishing Group in relation to his song catalogue back in December, though the deal was not announced at the time.
