Jo Wood, the soon to be ex-wife of The Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood, gave it her all to try and reconcile, but to no avail. However, her husband is planning on being very generous in honoring their 23-year marriage.
Wood, who has moved on and hooked up with 20-year-old Ekaterina “Katia” Ivanova, is reportedly offering Jo a multi-million dollar sum as well as almost $5 million a year. When the affair was first reported, speculation was that Jo could get as much as $81 million of Ron Wood's $114 million fortune.
A source close to Wood told a British tabloid that "Ronnie feels the marriage is over but he wants to do the right thing by Jo — even though they have not talked for months."
Although Wood hired Joyce Smyth, the same attorney that his bandmate Sir Mick Jagger used to divorce Jerry Hall, he has instructed the barrister to work out an amicable deal for the good of the family.
Meanwhile, Jo (pictured) is showing that she is not wasting any more time pining for Ron. She has resolved to move on and find a new life and love.
As British tabloid News Of The World reported, Jo partied last week at an exclusive nightspot in London's Mayfair, with one onlooker saying: "She showed girls half her age how to have a good time."
But one also knows that there must be private moments where she needs to mourn the end of her marriage and find ways to fill the holes left by his absence.
Ron Wood has been romancing Katia since leaving rehab in September. Reports also say that he is planning to take her with him when he reunites with his band The Faces to go on tour next year.
While in rehab, Ronnie was reported as saying: "I love my wife — but I have a girlfriend and I love her too." Jo will still be connected to him because of their children.
Maybe he'll see that he can't get real satisfaction from the girlfriend after spending more time with her.
