Ronnie Wood ‘plans to marry Russian lover’April 26th, 2009 - 12:57 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 26 (ANI): Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood is planning to marry his young lover Ekaterina Ivanova, it has emerged.
And he has vowed to hold on to as much of his 60-million pound fortune as he can in a “speedy” divorce from wife Jo.
Following the news, it has been reported that Jo and kids are refusing to talk to Ronnie, 61,who has told pals he has found “a new lease of life” with 20-year-old Ekaterina, reports The Mirror.
A friend of Jo’s said: “Jo is devastated and now knows there is no turning back. Ronnie wants the divorce to be settled as soon as possible so he can marry Kat. Jo always believed this was just a silly fling but that couldn’t be further from the truth.”
It was last summer that Ronnie left his 54-year-old wife for cocktail waitress Ekaterina.
A friend said: “It’s been a really horrible few weeks for Jo. She came out fighting when Ronnie left her. She got fit and was going out a lot to prove she was fine.
“And she worked really hard to remain on good terms with Ronnie despite what he has done. But now instead of sorting things out he wants to fight any claims. She is feeling pretty miserable.
“Jo just has heard through friends that he is planning to marry Ekaterina. She’s finding it hard going at the moment. To make things worse her business is in trouble.”
Jo, a former model, founded her Organic Beauty Products firm in 2005. She had thrown herself into building the company up since finding herself single, however, the latest figures show the firm has built up substantial debts. (ANI)
