LONDON (Reuters) - Rolling Stone guitarist Ronnie Wood was divorced by his wife Jo on Wednesday on the grounds of his admitted adultery.

Former model Jo, 54, was granted a decree nisi (provisional divorce) by a judge at the High Court's Family Division in London, the Press Association reported, signaling an end to their 24-year marriage. The divorce will become final in 6 weeks time if neither party objects.

Neither Jo nor Wood, 62, attended the proceedings. The couple have two children.

Divorce documents made public did not name the person with whom the star committed adultery. Wood and his wife separated in 2008 after his widely reported relationship with a young Russian cocktail waitress.
