Rocker weds Sally Humphreys in low-key ceremony
The Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood has married his girlfriend Sally Humphreys, according to reports.
Sky News says that the rocker tied the knot with theatre producer Humphreys at London’s Dorchester Hotel yesterday (December 21) in a low-key civil ceremony. The couple have been together for six months and have an age gap of 31 years between them with Wood, 65, older than his wife, who is 34.
Previously, Humphreys revealed that Wood had proposed after asking her father’s permission at the premiere of the Rolling Stones documentary Crossfire Hurricane. “There’s no problem with the age difference,” she had said. “I can understand why people would have a problem with it but it doesn’t seem to cause any problems. We get on very well.”
“He’s very funny and very talented,” she added. “There’s the Ronnie that everyone thinks that they know and the very talented artist and musician.”
Ronnie Wood first married in 1971 to Krissy Findlay before splitting in 1978. The guitarist then remarried in 1985 to Jo Wood from whom he separated in 2008 after an alleged affair with 21-year-old Ekaterina Ivanova. Previously, it was reported that Wood’s Rolling Stones bandmate Keith Richards had said he was “sick” of buying the guitarist wedding gifts.
