The 61-year-old Rolling Stones guitarist - who has been having an affair with 20-year-old Russian waitress Ekaterina Ivanova - reportedly confessed his feelings for wife Jo, 52, and his young mistress to fellow patients at a rehab facility.
He said: "I love my wife - but I have a girlfriend and I love her too."
The ageing rocker is being treated at a countryside retreat for alcohol, drug and sex addiction.
Staff told Ronnie he must complete a six-week treatment programme after hearing of his vodka binges, his 20-year-old lover and previous drug problems.
The source added to Britain’s The Sun newspaper: "He thinks the whole affair scenario has been blown out of proportion - but that’s part of his problem."-- Stuff
