Los Angeles, Feb 25 (IANS) Singer Ronnie Wood gave his ex-wife Jo a bag of cocaine after she gave birth to their son, says a book.

Wood presented his former wife Jo with the drug instead of a bunch of flowers when he visited her in hospital just hours after she gave birth.

In her tell-all new book "Hey Jo", Jo revealed: "The second day in hospital after Ty's birth, I was feeding him when Ronnie rocked up. 'Hey baby,' he said, 'I've bought you something.' 'Oh, my honey,' I thought. Could it be flowers, jewellery? Instead Ronnie handed me a packet of white powder. 'A little something to help you get back on track.' It was cocaine."

The couple got divorced in 2009 after 26 years of marriage.

Wood left her for waitress Ekaterina Ivanova.
