Ronnie Wood's wife has reportedly told him their marriage is over.
The Rolling Stones guitarist received a furious voicemail message from Jo Wood, his wife of 23 years, saying she no longer wants to be with the rocker following his alleged affair with 19-year-old Russian Ekaterina Ivanova.
A source said: "It has sunk in he has had an affair and she feels betrayed. They had such a strong marriage. He's thrown it all away with his stupid behaviour."
Ronnie and Ekaterina - who fled to the 61-year-old musician's retreat in County Kildare, Ireland 10 days ago - are believed to have become close after partying in London.
During drinking sessions, the young waitress is said to have posed naked for keen artist Ronnie.
The source added to Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Jo has been through the mill. She thought he was only drinking buddies with the girl and she was hanging around him for free drinks. Now everything has surfaced about how they met and Jo has hit rock bottom."
Jo, 53, had previously branded Ekaterina "mad" and claimed the pair were not having an affair.
Ekaterina's mother Irina has denied the pair are romantically involved, saying: "There is nothing between them."
Ronnie is due to return to London from Ireland today (14.07.08).
The alcoholic musician, who has reportedly been drinking two bottles of vodka a day, is said to have vowed to check into rehab on his return.
