Rock legend Ronnie Wood is single again after taking a "sabbatical" from his girlfriend Ana Araujo.
The Rolling Stones star has been dating the polo coach since his split from Russian waitress Ekaterina Ivanova in 2009.
Wood was spotted partying alone at Sir Paul MCCartney's wedding reception in London on Sunday (09Oct11), and the star has now confirmed he is no longer in a relationship with the Brazilian beauty.
He tells Britain's Daily Mail, "I'm taking a sabbatical from her. I'm like Picasso, painting up the ladder after leaving his mistress at the bottom after a row."
The guitarist split from Jo, his wife of 24 years, in 2008 after embarking on an affair with Ivanova.
