TIGHTWAD rock star Rod Ste­wart has re­vealed he sneak­ily re­fills his chil­dren’s open pop bot­tles.

The 73-year-old, once de­scribed as “tight as two coats of paint” by Rolling Stone Ron­nie Wood, moans they take a few mouth­fuls then leave the rest to go flat.

Rod, worth €180mil­lion, said: “Kids! Two mouth­fuls off the top. Then they leave them all over.

“So what I do is I pour them all into one big bot­tle, then I re­fill them and screw the tops back on. They never know.”

But the star, whose eight chil­dren range in age from 55 to seven, added: “Tight as two coats of paint.

“I’m try­ing to prove a point! You can’t waste things.”

Rod, who has just re­leased his 30th solo al­bum Blood Red Roses, also in­sisted he is re­ally a “pretty nor­mal guy” – push­ing the su­per­mar­ket trol­ley for wife Penny Lan­caster, 47, who is mum to his youngest chil­dren Ai­den, seven, and Alas­tair, 12. He told the LA Times: “I do a lot of reg­u­lar things when I’m with my wife in Lon­don. I go round to the su­per­mar­ket.” And Rod, once famed for his hell­rais­ing, moaned about how ev­ery­one is now a pa­parazzo. He said: “The things I used to get away with. But now ev­ery­one’s got a phone with a cam­era.”
