Ronnie Wood has blasted his ex-wife Jo Wood for auctioning off his belongings, but the former model insists they are hers to sell.
Ronnie Wood has blasted his ex-wife for auctioning off his belongings.
The Rolling Stones guitarist is ''shocked and disappointed'' to learn Jo Wood - who he split from four years ago after 24 years of marriage - has included items such as a long coat he wore on stage, a custom-made Fender Stratocaster guitar, antique harp, a handwritten letter from his bandmate Sir Mick Jagger and some of his portrait work as part of a sale scheduled to take place at Julien's auctions in Los Angeles next month.
A spokesperson for the 65-year-old rocker said: ''Ronnie was asked by Jo some time ago if he wished to add some items to an auction and he said he did not want to participate. He is therefore shocked and disappointed that this auction is being misrepresented as a joint sale. This is not the case.
''Furthermore he is staggered that some of the items being offered at the auction are clearly his personal belongings, which did not pass to Jo as part of the divorce proceedings. The Tour Clothes being offered belong to the Rolling Stones and are not hers to sell. Ronnie feels saddened that Jo has taken this course of action and wants the public to know he has not teamed up with Jo on this outrageous sale.''
However, the former model insists Ronnie knew about her plans and all of the items were left to her when they divorced.
Her spokesperson said: ''This is Jo's auction, it includes all the items left to her following the divorce.
''She's had everything in storage for three years and can't keep it any longer. Ronnie has been kept in the loop of the sale.''
