Ronnie Wood is a 'free man' as divorce is finalised

Wednesday January 26, 2011

Ronnie Wood's 23-year marriage to Jo is officially over.

Attending the South Bank Awards with new girlfriend Ana Araujo on Tuesday, the 63-year-old rocker confirmed the news, saying: "I am a free man. I believe today is the day the divorce becomes final."

"I'm going to meet Jo this week, very amicably, and we are going to talk about 'you have this and I'll have that'. It's only material things."

The Rolling Stars guitarist split from his wife in 2008 after he had an affair with Russian waitress Ekaterina Ivanova.

Since the start of last year he has been dating Brazil-born polo coach Ana, 33, who unveiled a brand new look at the London event.

Gone were her wild curls in place of a sharp, sleek new bob, accentuated by her outfit; a smart Victorian-esque shirt, blazer and black trousers.
