Ronnie Wood is not leaving his wife for his lover.
A friend of Jo Wood has slammed claims by 20-year-old Ekaterina Ivanova that the 61-year-old Rolling Stones guitarist has "made his decision" to set up home with her once he has finished his stint in rehab.
The pal told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Ekaterina is living in a fantasy world. To say she has won Ronnie is ridiculous, particularly as there isn't a competition.
"This silly child is trying to play grown-ups but she is just showing how immature and unready she is for an adult relationship."
Former model Jo, 53, has visited Ronnie at the Life Works Community Centre in Surrey - where he is being treated for alcohol, sex and drug addiction - for a romantic walk and was seen kissing and cuddling the musician.
But the rocker has also been in touch with Ekaterina during his stay at the clinic - where he is expected to stay for several months.
The source added: "Ronnie is still trying to save his marriage and Jo is desperate to see him nursed back to health. For her this isn't some playground contest with another woman.
"Ekaterina will never have what Jo and Ronnie have together."
Jo and Ronnie's daughter Leah, 29, spent the weekend forgetting their troubles at the Virgin Mobile V Festival in Chelmsford, Essex.
