Ronnie Wood - Jo Wood Recalls Bizarre Encounter With Ronnie's Mistress

Ronnie Wood's ex-wife endured the most "surreal encounter" of her life when the rocker brought his young mistress into the family home and she set her hair on fire in the kitchen.

The Rolling Stones star's marriage to Jo, his wife of more than 20 years, broke down in 2008 after his affair with young Russian cocktail waitress Ekaterina Ivanova was exposed in the press.

Jo has now detailed a strange meeting with Ivanova in her new memoir, Hey Jo, which is being serialised in Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, revealing the rocker brought his mistress into the family's house following a night out and the girl drunkenly set her hair on fire while attempting to light a cigarette.

She writes, "The pair of them fell out of the taxi on to our drive in a drunken heap. The girl - who couldn't have been more than 18 or 19 - seemed wrecked. I thought, 'Surely my husband's not sleeping with this... child?'...

"'This is Katia,' said Ronnie, beaming at us. The girl (Ivanova) slumped at the table and started fumbling with a packet of cigarettes... (She was) sticking a cigarette into her mouth, then going to the stove and lighting the hob. 'Oh, go right ahead!' I thought. 'You've taken my husband - why not help yourself to my gas?'... The front of her hair went up in flames. Quickly (perhaps a little too quickly, with hindsight) I grabbed a dishcloth and damped it out. I'm not sure she'd noticed she'd caught fire.

"This was turning into the most surreal encounter of my life. As we walked to the living room she tripped and fell, then staggered to her feet and plonked herself on my couch. 'Ain't she funny, Jo?' Ronnie was looking at her fondly... And then she passed out, swiftly followed by Ronnie."
