Ronnie Wood is an "exhausting" lover, his 20-year-old girlfriend has revealed.
Ekaterina Ivanova, who has been dating married 61-year-old Ronnie since last summer, admits their controversial relationship and the Rolling Stones star's personal problems can be difficult to cope with.
She said: "I am always exhausted. We always have to go somewhere, or meet someone. There are Ronnie's Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and then when you get home the phone rings, then you have to walk the dog.
"There is something really tiring about it. We don't get as much time together as I thought we would. There is always someone else there."
Ekaterina - who sparked outrage when she ran away to Ireland with the rocker last July - also confessed the public backlash to their romance has "scarred" her for life.
She added to Grazia magazine: "I just wanted to have fun. It has really affected me. It has scarred me. I'm scared to do anything. Everyone talks about me as if I don't have feelings. I'm sick of feeling like a victim."
Ronnie - who checked into a rehab facility to battle his alcohol addiction after leaving Ireland - has now split from Jo, his wife of 23 years.
Ronnie and Ekaterina are living together in a North London house.
