Has Charlie Watts quit the Stones?

A report from Undercover Music cites an inside source as saying the Rolling Stones drummer "...will never record or tour with the band again", and goes on to add that Charlie Drayton, who drums for Keith Richards on the side in the Expensive Winos, will take Watts place behind the Stones.   The purported split was attributed to the veteran drummer following through on a decision he was said to be close to before the band convinced him to participate in the Bigger Bang Tour.  Other reports quickly emerged refuting the original story. The British site Uncut maintains a person it identifies only as the group's "UK spokesperson" emphatically denied the validity of the original report.
