Wood allegedly arrived at a clinic in London on Friday after bandmate Mick Jagger, his daughter Leah and other family members urged him to clean up his act. "Mick has always been helpful and supportive of Ronnie when he gets in trouble and falls off the wagon," an unnamed friend of Wood's told the paper. "The news Ronnie's decided to go into rehab is really pleasing for Mick. He has always urged him to get help when he's had his problems -- and this case was no different. Mick's just delighted he's taken heed and is trying to get himself straight."
The last time Wood tried to dry out was in 2008 after he broke up with his wife of 23 years, Jo, to date Ekaterina Ivanova, a cocktail waitress and model in her 20s. That romance lasted until December 2009, when the 62-year-old was arrested for allegedly assaulting her. Rumors have been floating around that the Stones would fire Wood because of his problems, but the Daily Mail's source claims that his job his safe.
"They've known him a long time and he's a great mate," the friend said. "They are all like brothers and they just like to look after each other when they're in trouble and not threaten one another."
