Ronnie Wood's push gift for ex: Cocaine

Los Angeles - Ronnie Wood gave his ex-wife a bag of cocaine after she had given birth.

The Rolling Stones rocker presented his former wife Jo Wood with the drug instead of a more traditional bunch of flowers when he came to visit her in the hospital just hours after she gave birth to their son, Tyrone.

Writing in her shocking tell-all new book Hey Jo, she explained: "The second day in hospital after Ty's birth, I was feeding him when Ronnie rocked up. 'Hey baby,' he said, 'I've bought you something.' 'Oh, my honey,' I thought. Could it be flowers, jewellery? Instead Ronnie handed me a packet of white powder. 'A little something to help you get back on track.' It was cocaine."

Jo also revealed she and the 65-year-old musician - who she met at a party in 1977 and was married to for 26 years - would fly into a rage when his booze and drugs ran out, including one memorable evening when he threatened to maim her because there was no more vodka.

She recalled: "On that occasion he really lost it. The poison started pouring out of his mouth. 'I'll throw acid in your face ... You'd better watch out because I know people.' It was as if he was possessed (which, in a way, he was)."

The rock 'n' roll pair divorced in 2009, after Ronnie left her for waitress Ekaterina Ivanova.

The musician married Sally Humphreys in 2012.
