Rocker Ronnie Wood's ex-wife Jo has spoken out to defend the behaviour of Rolling Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger following the death of his girlfriend L'Wren Scott.

Scott committed suicide at her New York home in March (14) and last month (Jun14), Jagger sparked speculation he had moved on from his partner of 13 years after he was photographed on a hotel balcony in Switzerland with 27-year-old American ballet dancer Melanie Hamrick.

The images drew harsh criticism from Scott's sister Jan Shane, but the late designer's brother, Randy Bambrough, defended Jagger, insisting there was no reason to doubt the love he had for Scott.

Now Jo Wood, who split from Jagger's bandmate in 2008, has also defended the rocker's behaviour, insisting the singer is simply carrying on with his life the only way he knows how.

She tells Britain's Sunday Mirror newspaper, "This is the only life Mick knows after all these years. He's the epitome of rock and roll. He will always have a wild streak, but I say good luck to him. He should grow old disgracefully. When I am 70, I hope I will still be going out with guys. I am sure most men would say, 'How fantastic'. He's 70, go for it. What do people want him to be doing? Sitting in a rocking chair?"
