Young Russian insists she'll stand by Rolling Stone as he enters rehab


The pretty young Russian who became Ronnie Woods ‘muse’ has broken her silence – saying she’s devoted to him.

Ekaterina Ivanova, 20, spent 3 weeks holed up with the Rolling Stone at his £3m retreat in Co Kildare, Ireland, and says the sees a future for them together, despite the fact Ronnie has been happily married to wife Jo, 53, for 23 years.

After flying back to London, Ronnie, 61, is now seeking treatment for alcohol abuse – separating him from the blonde waitress, who is desperate to be by his side.

‘I will never betray him,’ she tells The Sun. ‘As long as there is a chance of happiness for me and Ronnie, I have nothing to say.

‘I need to speak to Ronnie. My life’s been turned upside down by all this. My mum’s health has suffered and I just want all of this to go away. I love him and I’m standing by him.’

Ekaterina, who is affectionately known as Katia by her family, is now staying at a friend’s flat.

Meanwhile, it has emerged that Ronnie – who appreciates young talent – took art student Caroline Gorick, 26, for celebratory meal after buying one of paintings last month for £5,000.

His agent declined to comment as did Caroline.
