Ronnie Wood, Rolling Stone’s guitarist has officially divorced his wife, Jo, obtaining, today, a quick divorce after he recognized his adultery.
Former model Jo Wood, aged 54, was granted a divorce by a judge at the High Court for family law in London, ending a marriage that lasted 24 years. Neither Jo Wood or Ronnie Wood were not present in court.
The 62 year old rocker’s marriage fell apart when he left the conjugal home from London in 2008 to spend ten days in Ireland with the young Russian girl Ekaterina Ivanova, 40 years younger than the British musician.
Under the current British divorce laws, Jo Wood is entitled to half of her husband’s wealth, although lawyers haven’t yet said which is its value. Sources in the British press claim, however, that Wood’s wealth declined in recent years because of the global economic crisis.
