A representative for the band calls report that Charlie Watts leaves The Rolling Stones as 'fabricated and ill-informed report.'

The spokesperson adds that Watts plans to spend Monday, May 24 "celebrating with the rest of the Stones... as the Exile album is number one in the U.K. charts". The rockers' "" record, which was first issued in 1972, has reached the top spot in Britain - marking the Stones' first number one in their native country since "" in 1994.
