Doctors want Rolling Stones star to concentrate on quitting booze


Ronnie Wood has been advised not try and untangle his love life for at least a month.

The Rolling Stones star, who has been married to wife Jo for 23 years, is currently in rehab after hiding out at his £3m retreat in Co Kildare, Ireland, on a 2 week ‘bender’ with 19-year-old Russian
waitress Ekaterina Ivanova.

Doctors reckon that until he’s completed his treatment, it’s impossible for Ronnie to evaluate his true feelings.

‘Ronnie is not allowed to speak to his nearest and dearest while he is in rehab,’ a source tells the Daily Star. ‘He and Jo still have major issues to resolve. But Jo knows there is no point in even trying to talk to Ronnie until he is sober.’

Jo, 53, was photographed at London’s Lyttleton National Theatre this week looking calm and collected – and still wearing her wedding ring.

Meanwhile, Ronnie, 61, appeared gaunt when he was spotted on a brief outing with fellow patients in Surrey.

‘He does look thinner than before and much more frail,’ an onlooker tells the Daily Mail. ‘He had a down look on his face most of the time. He seemed lost in his own thoughts.’
