, and now she's encouraging him to go back to his ex-wife, because he "needs mothering." The 21-year-old cocktail waitress, who split from the 62-year-old guitarist last month after a year-long relationship, wants Ronnie to rekindle his relationship with Jo Wood

She said: "I hope Ronnie and Jo fall madly in love with each other again and get back together. I feel like it's a good place for him. She knows him best and how to handle him. I think he needs to accept that he does need mothering. One of the reasons he left her was because he was sick of being mothered and because everyone gave him a hard time about his drinking."
Ronnie split from former model Jo in October 2008, after meeting Ekaterina, also known as Katia, in a London club where she was working. However, his relationship with the waitress ended in December following a violent public row in Claygate, Esher, South East England. Ronnie was arrested after the incident and later cautioned "in connection with a domestic incident" after dragging Katia along the street, leaving her with bruises.
Despite the split, the guitarist still believes there is a chance he and Katia could get back together. She revealed in an interview with The Sun
newspaper: "Ronnie never apologized for hurting me. He just told me he'd f***ed up. He said, 'Why don't you come away with me? I'll take you somewhere nice, we can talk.' He still thinks he's going to get back with me. I just said, 'No, I don't need you anymore.' "
