Los Angeles: 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.
