Celeb watchers noticed the absence of Ronnie Wood's girlfriend at Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell's wedding at the weekend.
The reason why the Rolling Stone took a friend along has now become clear – he has split with pretty Brazilian model Ana Araujo.
The 64-year-old revealed: "I'm taking a sabbatical from her."
Ronnie has credited Ana, 32, with helping him quit drugs and alcohol after more than 30 years.
The couple dated for two years, but friends say the pair were prone to rows.
Ronnie split with his wife of 23 years – Jo Wood – in 2008 after starting a relationship with cocktail waitress Ekaterina Ivanova.
