Wood, who's reportedly been sober for about 20 montha following his eighth stint in rehab, has had several tabloid-friendly romantic liaisons since leaving his wife Jo in 2008. He recently split with 30-year-old Brazilian model Ana Araújo and dated 20-year-old Ekaterina Ivanova up until 2009 (he was also arrested for allegedly assaulting her). At the exhibit opening, he also introduced to his son Jesse's girlfriend, Fearne Cotton. Adding weirdness to an already bizarre situation, Cotton is five years older than Sargent. That is almost as strange as when Bill Wyman's son married his wife's mother (take a breath to try and figure out all the awkwardness and confusion that caused).
In related Stones news, Rolling Stone reports that later this month Wood, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts will rendezvous in a London rehearsal studio. "We're just going to play a little together, because we haven't played for three or four years," Richards told the mag. "You don't necessarily want to rehearse or write anything -- you just want to touch bases. That's a good start: Me, Charlie and Ronnie. Mick's welcome, and I'm sure he'll turn up, but right now we just want to get our chops down."
There's still no official word on whether the Stones plan to reunite for their 50th anniversary next year, but this certainly seems promising. "I just hope we can perform live," said Wood. "It'd be great to see if that old spark is there." If his new girlfriend is any indication, Wood already has plenty of spark in his life.
The Stones will also be reissuing their 1978 classic 'Some Girls' -- Wood's first LP as an official member of the band -- with 12 bonus tracks on Nov. 21. Stay tuned to Spinner for some exclusive insight on the new version of the album.
