Neither Ronnie Wood nor his estranged wife Jo were in court today (11.11.09) to hear the first stage of their divorce granted.
Ronnie Wood and Jo Wood have been granted a decree nisi.
Neither the Rolling Stones rocker nor his estranged spouse were present at Londonâs high Court this morning (11.11.09) when the first stage of their legal separation was granted on the grounds of the 62-year-old musicianâs adultery.
The couple - who married in 1985 and have two children together - split up last year after Ronnie, 62, fled to Ireland with Russian cocktail waitress Ekaterina Ivanova, 20, for a drinking binge in July.
He was expected to return to Jo, 54, after completing a stint in rehab in September. Instead he continued to romance Ekaterina after being treated for drugs, alcohol and sex addiction.
Earlier this year, Jo said she was "relieved" not to be with the rocker anymore.
She said: "I miss him but now I have more time for me. And I don't have to worry that I'm going to get home and he'll be drunk."
The coupleâs decree absolute - the final stage of their divorce - will be granted in six weeks and one day.
