Ronnie Wood cautioned for assault on ex-girlfriend

Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood was cautioned today for attacking his former Russian girlfriend Ekaterina Ivanova.

Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood was cautioned today for attacking his former Russian girlfriend Ekaterina Ivanova.

The 62-year-old was questioned by police after clashing with his on-off girlfriend in the high street of Claygate, Esher, on December 2.

A Surrey Police spokesman said: “A 62-year-old man from Esher has been cautioned for common assault in connection with a domestic incident in Claygate high street on Wednesday, December 2.”

It is understood a passer-by dialled 999 as an argument took place between Wood and the 21-year-old Russian.

One resident described how she heard a woman screaming as a man pinned her to the ground. She said there were choking noises and several people recognised the famous couple.

The arrest was one of the final chapters in a tumultuous relationship between the ageing rocker and the former cocktail waitress.

Police were called to the couple’s mock-castle home in September after one row in which it was claimed Miss Ivanova threatened to kill herself.

The couple’s relationship has now ended with Miss Ivanova describing her former boyfriend as an “evil goblin king” in one magazine interview.

It is believed she has now returned to living with her mother at a council flat in central London.

Wood left his wife, Jo, for Miss Ivanova in 2008. The couple had been married for more than 20 years and their divorce will be finalised within weeks.

Mrs Wood, 54, took part in 'Strictly Come Dancing' this year.

Earlier this month the lapdancing bar where Wood met Miss Ivanova was closed after a raid by vice squad officers.

Detectives said The Capricorn Club in Goodge Street, Soho, was a £1m (€1.1m)-a-year sex and drugs den.

One officer said the bar was an underground brothel where clients had sex in cubicles and drugs including cocaine were easily available.
