Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood enters rehab

The guitarist is 'seeking help' for alcohol issues

A spokesperson for The Rolling StonesRonnie Wood has confirmed that the guitarist has entered rehab.

The spokesperson told BBC News that Wood was “seeking help” in a rehab centre for alcohol-related issues.

“Following Ronnie‘s continued battle with alcohol he has entered a period of rehab,” the spokesperson said. “His close family and friends say he is seeking help and look forward to his recovery.”
