Ronnie Wood - Ronnie Wood gave ex-wife cocaine in hospital
Rolling Stones legend Ronnie Wood gave his ex-wife Jo Wood a bag of cocaine on her hospital bed just after she had given birth to help her get ''back on track''.
Ronnie Wood gave his ex-wife a bag of cocaine after she had given birth.
The Rolling Stones rocker presented his former wife Jo with the drug instead of a more traditional bunch of flowers when he came to visit her in the hospital just hours after she gave birth to their son, Tyrone.
Writing in her shocking tell-all new book 'Hey Jo', she explained: ''The second day in hospital after Ty's birth, I was feeding him when Ronnie rocked up. 'Hey baby,' he said, 'I've bought you something.' 'Oh, my honey,' I thought. Could it be flowers, jewellery? Instead Ronnie handed me a packet of white powder. 'A little something to help you get back on track.' It was cocaine.''
Jo also revealed she and the 65-year-old musician - who she met at a party in 1977 and was married to for 26 years - would fly into a range when his booze and drugs ran out, including one memorable evening when he threatened to maim her because there was no more vodka.
She recalled: ''On that occasion he really lost it. The poison started pouring out of his mouth. 'I'll throw acid in your face ... You'd better watch out because I know people. It was as if he was possessed (which, in a way, he was).''
The rock 'n' roll pair divorced in 2009, after Ronnie left her for waitress Ekaterina Ivanova.
The musician married Sally Humphreys last year.
