London, July 14 (IANS) The Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood’s wife has decided to leave him after a 23-year marriage because of his involvement with an 18-year old Russian bar maid. Jo, 53, relayed her intentions through a message on rocker’s phone, reports thesun.co.uk.
A source close to her said: “It’s sunk in he’s had an affair and she feels betrayed. They had such a strong marriage. He’s thrown it all away with his stupid behaviour.”
Wood has been in Ireland with his Russian girlfriend Ekaternina Ivanova. He is expected to return and has promised to check himself into a rehab clinic as soon as he is back. His friends are pleading with him to talk things out with his wife.
“Jo has been through the mill. She thought he was only drinking buddies with the girl and she was hanging around him for free drinks. Now everything has surfaced about how they met and Jo has hit rock bottom,” the source added.
