Ronnie Wood of The Rolling Stones has confirmed that he is to marry for a third time after getting engaged to theatre producer Sally Humphreys.
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 to be, who is 34. According to a report in The Sun, Wood's bandmate Keith Richards is "sick" of buying wedding presents for his friend.
"Ronnie and Sally have been friends a long time. He always had an eye for her but she was in a relationship," an unnamed source told the paper. "They’ve been inseparable for months and he decided to tie the knot again. Keith Richards has been laughing about it. He’s sick of buying him wedding presents.”
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.
Jo Wood recently hit the headlines after selling a host of rare guitars and Rolling Stones memorabilia at auction. Ronnie Wood subsequently claimed she had no permission to stage the sale. However, the pair appear to have reconciled their differences after sale went ahead last weekend.
Ronnie Wood will join his Rolling Stones bandmates for four reunion shows to celebrate the band's 50th anniversary later this year. The band will play live shows in London and New York in December.
