'Evil goblin' Ronnie Wood

Ekaterina Ivanova has branded Ronnie Wood an ''evil goblin'', and said she ''grew out'' of their relationship.

Ekaterina Ivanova has branded Ronnie Wood an "evil goblin".

The 20-year-old Russian waitress - whose turbulent relationship with the Rolling Stones rocker ended last week - has blasted the 62-year-old guitarist's immature behaviour and blamed his reliance on alcohol for wrecking their romance.

Ekaterina insists their 16-month relationship started to turn sour after they moved into a rented "fairytale" turreted castle.

She said: "The whole thing started off like a fairytale. Then it felt like an evil fairytale. When Ronnie and I moved into a tower my friends were laughing and saying I was like the princess trapped in the tower. I'd be trapped there with an evil goblin king.

"He was like a child with tantrums when he was drunk, throwing water bottles and doing impressions of my voice.

"It was like trying to keep a child under control. In the end I was so unimpressed by everything. I found it very fake."

Ekaterina insists she was the one who grew out of their relationship by the time they split, even though it was Ronnie - who was still married to his wife of 23 years, Jo, when he eloped to Ireland with Ekaterina in July 2008 - who called time on the romance.

She added to Hello! Magazine: "I grew out of him, I just thought, 'What's the point of being with an older man if he acts about 12?' I thought, 'What a pathetic person.'

"I felt dead inside. My friends said by the end I'd look like a zombie - really pale."
