Rolling Stone guitarist Ronnie Wood is "seeking help" with his battle with alcohol in a rehabilitation centre, a spokeswoman for the star has confirmed.
The move follows tabloid speculation over the state of his 23-year marriage to former model Jo Wood.
"Following Ronnie's continued battle with alcohol he has entered a period of rehab," his spokeswoman said.
"His close family and friends say he is seeking help and look forward to his recovery."
This is not the first time the 61-year-old has sought help for addiction to alcohol.
In 2002 he checked into a clinic to undergo treatment.
A long-term addiction to the drug cocaine led to the star having a plastic septum inserted in his nose in 1975.
Last year, the star and his fellow Stones bandmates completed their Bigger Bang tour, which began in 2005.
