Ronnie Wood's girlfriend Ana Araujo reportedly ripped two of his paintings before hitting him in the face after finding him drinking alcohol
Ronnie Wood's girlfriend has reportedly given him a black eye.
The Rolling Stones rocker - who had been sober since entering a rehab clinic in January - infuriated Ana Araujo, 30, when she found him drinking last week, prompting her to rip up two of his paintings before hitting him, also injuring his mouth.
A source said: "Ana had been keeping him off the bottle. She rumbled him on Wednesday having a drink and an argument escalated quickly.
"He was calling her all sorts of names for criticising his drinking and she just snapped.
"Two of his prized paintings, which he had hoped to sell, are ruined. She ripped them to shreds.
"He crossed the wrong woman."
The shocked 62-year-old musician then rang ex-wife Jo Wood - who he left in July 2008 after embarking on a romance with Ekaterina Ivanova - "in a state" but failed to get the sympathy he was looking for.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: "She's sick of his nonsense and told him to get a grip. He's become a sad old man."
Friends have previously credited Ronnie's relationship with Ana as helping him stay sober and even predicted the pair will marry.
A source said recently: "Ronnie thinks Ana could be the woman to make a life with. She's such a positive influence on him and they've very relaxed in each other's company. They're happy enjoying the simple things in life like staying in, making meals and watching films.
"He couldn't be happier and there's already talk of them getting married as early as this summer."
