Ronnie splits with Ekaterina

RONNIE WOOD has ended his relationship with girlfriend EKATERINA IVANOVA after he was arrested on suspicion of assaulting her during a public bust-up, according to a U.K. report.

The Rolling Stones rocker was held by police last Wednesday after allegedly choking Ivanova during a heated argument outside a restaurant in Surrey, England. The 62-year-old guitarist spent a night behind bars before he was released on bail, and Ivanova, 20, has reportedly refused to press charges.

British newspaper the Daily Mail is now alleging the pair has decided to end its relationship.

A source tells the publication, "Ronnie and Katya have now split. They spent the night together as they still have very strong feelings for each other. But Ronnie dumped Katya shortly afterwards."

Wood walked out on his wife of 23 years, Jo, in July last year after his fling with the waitress was exposed in the press.

The former couple divorced last month.
