Jo Wood: 'I Refuse To Get Back With Ronnie'
Jo Wood refuses to reunite with her rocker ex RONNIE following his recent split from his Russian lover - because she's been enjoying single life too much.
The Rolling Stones rocker left his wife of 23 years for young waitress Ekaterina Ivanova last year (08) but now he's decided to end the affair just days after he was arrested for allegedly assaulting her.
Jo admits she felt sorry for her ex after learning the news and immediately contacted him out of concern.
She explains, "I was very upset to hear about what happened last week and I've spoken to Ronnie. In fact, I called him after he came out of the nick (custody) to see how he was coping and he told me not to worry and that he's going to be OK.
"But he said he has split up with that girl for good. It's over. He won't be going back to her. There's no going back for him, he's adamant about that."
But Jo maintains she has no plans to reconcile with Ronnie.
She adds, "We're still speaking and he's been talking with our daughter Leah, too... But before people ask or assume that we might be getting back together, we're not. Absolutely not. I'm very happy being single at the moment and I'm enjoying life."
The veteran guitarist was held by police earlier this month (02Dec09) after allegedly choking Ivanova during a heated argument outside a restaurant in Surrey, England. The 62 year old spent a night behind bars before he was released on bail, and Ivanova, 20, has reportedly refused to press charges.
