Ronnie Wood's former girlfriend speaks for the first time following split, branding him an 'evil goblin'
Ekaterina Ivanova, the ex girlfriend of Ronnie Wood, has spoken for the first time since their relationship ended - and branded the Rolling Stone an 'evil goblin'.
The 21-year-old dramatically split with her 65-year-old beau when he was arrested for allegedly assaulting her during a row. She described Wood's temperamental personality to Hello! Magazine, saying, 'He went all Jekyll and Hyde. I'd be trapped there with an evil goblin king.'
The relationship turned sour, Ivanova stated, once the pair moved to the Rolling Stone's mansion in Esher, Surrey.
'The whole thing started off like a fairytale,' she told Hello!, 'But then it felt like an evil fairytale'.
'When Ronnie and I moved into a tower my friends were laughing, and saying I was like the princess trapped in the tower.'
As for the much-commented on age difference, and she explained: 'When we met, it was like we were the same age. And he sort of stayed there while I've grown into a woman. He was like a child with tantrums when he was drunk, throwing water bottles and doing impressions of my voice.'
It was Wood's behaviour that eventually led to the break-down of the relationship, Ekaterina explained.
'I grew out of him. I just thought, what's the point of being with an older man if he acts about 12? I felt dead inside. My friends said towards the end I'd look like a zombie.'
'I've realised age does matter. I'm hanging out with guys my own age - we have things in common.'
