Stone to roll as wife begins divorce proceedings

The wife of Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood has said she is to divorce him.

Jo Wood, aged 54, is to begin proceedings against the rock star on the basis of adultery, following revelations of his fling with 20-year-old Russian waitress Ekaterina Ivanova, with whom he has been on holiday.

The action by Mrs Wood could see her gain half of her husband's assets, which could run into a number of millions of pounds.

Mr and Mrs Wood have two daughters, Tyrone and Leah.

Those who may be facing a less high-profile divorce and are keen to carry out the process amicably may wish to do a DIY divorce.

Ronnie Wood may join a number of other wealthy people whose fortunes have been reduced in high-profile divorce proceedings.

These include Formula One motor racing boss Bernie Ecclestone, whose fortune is already estimated to have fallen from £1.46 billion to £934 million in the past year due to the economic crisis, according to the recently-published Sunday Times rich list.
