But the romance between Ekaterina Ivanova and Ronnie Wood was not meant to be.
And speaking for the first time since their split, Katia reveals exclusively to HELLO! what her romance with the Rolling Stone was really like behind closed doors.
In this week's issue of the magazine – number 1103 – the elfin 21-year-old opens up on life with the rocker, from their first meeting through to the end of their affair.
"The whole thing started off like a fairytale. But then it felt like an evil fairytale," says the Russia-born artist, who until recently lived with 62-year-old Ronnie in the gothic Ruxley Tower in Surrey.
"When Ronnie and I moved into a tower, my friends were laughing and saying I was like the princess trapped in the tower. He went all Jekyl and Hyde. I'd be trapped there with an evil goblin king."
The pretty blonde candidly talks about meeting the other Rolling Stones, her thoughts on Ronnie's ex wife Jo and what the future holds for her now.
