Rolling Stone guitarist living with 18-year-old bar girlJuly 11th, 2008 - 1:50 pm ICT by IANS
London, July 11 (IANS) The Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, 61, is living with a Russian bar girl, less than a third of his age, who is telling her friends how he has dumped his wife of 23 years. The 18-year-old Ekaterina Ivanova claims that Jo Wood begged her not to steal her husband when Ronnie took her home to meet her. But Ivanova told her friends that she just sneered at her and said: “I am not taking him - he is leaving.”
Ronnie has now taken Ekaterina to his luxury pad in Ireland.
Jo was horrified to hear the teenager’s claims and insisted the conversation at the couple’s South West London mansion never took place.
She said: “She is mad. She is a terrible alcoholic. I know her - she’s been here. She’s a friend and he’s a guy - I’m going to call her now. And I’m gonna go and call him now and tell him what she’s said.”
Jo was also concerned about Ronnie’s drinking and added: “He’s drinking heavily - maybe two bottles of vodka a day.”
