Ronnie Wood’s former girlfriend Ekaterina Ivanova has told him he must reunite with his ex-wife Jo Wood because he needs ''mothering''
Ekaterina Ivanova wants Ronnie Wood to reunite with his ex-wife - because he needs "mothering".
The 21-year-old cocktail waitress - who split from the 62-year-old Rolling Stones rocker last month after a year-long romance - has encouraged her former lover to get back together with Jo Wood, the woman he left after 23-years of marriage.
She said: "I hope Ronnie and Jo fall madly in love with each other again and get back together. I feel like it’s a good place for him. She knows him best and how to handle him. I think he needs to accept that he does need mothering.
"One of the reasons he left her was because he was sick of being mothered and because everyone gave him a hard time about his drinking."
Ronnie split from former model Jo in October 2008, after meeting Ekaterina - also known as Katia - in a London club where she was working.
However, his relationship with the waitress ended in December following a violent public row in Claygate, Esher, South East England.
Ronnie was arrested after the incident and later cautioned "in connection with a domestic incident" after dragging Katia along the street, leaving her with bruises.
Despite the split, the guitarist still believes there is a chance he and Katia could get back together.
She revealed in an interview with The Sun newspaper: "Ronnie never apologised for hurting me. He just told me he’d f***ed up. He said, ‘Why don’t you come away with me? I’ll take you somewhere nice, we can talk.’ He still thinks he’s going to get back with me. I just said, ‘No, I don’t need you anymore.’ "
