Heather Mills taped Paul McCartney

He Hit Me, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah: “Heather Mills has taped evidence to back up claims that Sir Paul McCartney physically attacked her, say friends. … ‘It has never been Heather’s intention to use the tapes, which she feels prove that Paul raised his hands to her, but if she has to, she will. It is dynamite stuff and if used, really could destroy Paul.’


Commentary

The line from King Kong springs to mind: "It wasn't the planes that got him, it was Beauty killed the Beast." But maybe Neil Sedaka is better though maybe it's unfair to Heather Mills. Still, many a man who would fear nothing else very often gets taken down by a woman.

Oh, run Samson run, Delilah's on her way
Run Samson run, you ain't got time to stay
Run Samson run, on your mark you better start
I'd sooner trust a hungry lion
Than a gal with a cheatin' heart

"I used to be cruel to my woman

I beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved

Man I was mean but I'm changing my scene

And I'm doing the best that I can."

Oh, this is delicious tabloid, but truly it makes me sad how dysfunctional the talented achievers can be.

A close friend knows a couple in the Beatle family and attests to how it's all relative in their world of celebrity. While women can fell men, Wretchard, sometimes famous men are beasts who can lose out when they don't consider themselves "normal" and don't mind not being mindful:

Yesterday,
All my troubles seemed so far away,
Now it looks as though they're here to stay,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.


Suddenly,
I'm not half the man I used to be,
There's a shadow hanging over me,
Oh, yesterday came suddenly.


Why she
Had to go I don't know, she wouldn't say.
I said,
Something wrong, now I long for yesterday.


There's a good chance Paul did more than just say something wrong. While the taping of private affairs is insidious, so may be another's lying and defamation regarding same private affairs.

Catherine,

I don't know what to think. Maybe Paul McCartney's a wifebeater. I'd be disappointed, but it's not impossible. Then again he has a lot of money and money creates a kind of gravitational pull that warps all the space around it.

Character and celebrity are not obviously connected. Just today the biography of an Australian celebrity was published portraying him as both a great man and a creep. Today Keith Urban checked into rehab. What can I tell you?

Who knows?

There sure is a lot of pre-supposition of guilt here, but it looks to me that she started setting him up for this years ago.

Wretchard and Talnik,

I think you have it right. If you're following this like me, you're only glancing at the atrocious headlines the two and their attorneys are creating. One of them has to be lying and engaged in character assassination, and maybe both of them are.

At least this much is clear- it's all about the $$$$$.

It may just be that money isn't everything.

How nice it is see over and over again that the U.S. is a nearly classless society (those who see classes tend to see victims everywhere, "victims" who when asked say "they must mean someone else").

The love of a good (wo)man, a job that rewards and respects you, children who share your values, and a government that largely stays out of your life make it hard to imagine that an average american (even those barely above poverty (who may or may not know that they are living as well or better than most europeans) would choose to trade their lives for "Sir Paul's." Like me, they probably feel sorry for, perhaps even pity him.

I can't understand why he married the shoplifting skank. Everyone warned him and still he not only married her but didn't get a prenup. There's no fool like an old fool.

There wasn't any whiff of this during the long marriage to Linda Eastman,Heather hasn't much of a leg to stand on.

peteruk - Heather hasn't much of a leg to stand on.

Apparently one of her complaints was his heavy drinking. She apparently can't accept a man who is legless.

Anyway, the British legal system discriminates horribly against men so the merits of her case probably won't matter all that much.

Ari Tai, good for you and many of us! I meant that money seems to be fueling the ugliness in this particular case. Hate to suspect this, but perhaps even divorce lawyers gin up more problems than there have to be in the interest of fees and publicity.

I simply deplore the double standard that allows a woman to ruin a man with lies and make false accusations of rape, child molestation, violence, sodomy, or you name it, while the man is instantly presumed guilty. There is so little risk to the women and such a high burden of proof on the man and such a large potential gain that this system seems rigged. I would say that when a woman is found guilty of such a deception, the punishment should be for greater that that of the false charge and that a few well publicised examples are called for.

My guess is that Ms. Mills is a gold digger, and I always though McCartney's work was exceptionally mediocre.

Putnam,

Unconscionable smears have been an 'equal opportunity' practice since the dawn of human sentience, or at least since The Fall, and especially since divorce court. All too often women aren't given the benefit of the doubt when it comes to malicious gossip intended to defame and discredit. But I would agree that false allegations of any kind should carry stiff penalties.

The truth in the McCartney's case is unknowable at this point. You could be right, or not. As for me, I'm rooting for music past and civility forward.

Skank is correct. He was married forever to Linda Eastman and nary a word. Now this hobbling skank comes along and smears him.

Here's a terrible un-PC truth. Can you handle the truth?! Some women get beat up more than others. Now before you get your panties in a twist let me say that does not justify hitting a woman. My sisters behaved abysmally growing up but I was not allowed to lay a hand on them under ANY circumstances.

But certain women conduct their lives in such a way that invites the wrath of others. They are train wrecks waiting to happen. They leave only chaos in their wakes. And if you find yourself in the thrall of such a woman (or man for that matter) there is only ONE way to deal with them. GET THE HELL OUT OF DODGE!!!

It strikes me as odd that, in a case where the complainant has made use of a digital video recorder in support of her claims, the recording which purports to "make" the case for physical abuse is audio.

Both John Lennon and Paul McCartney had beat up wives and girlfriends in their younger years. This doesn't mean that it's necessarily true in this recent case.

Heather Mills IS a gold-digger, and Paul may have struck her out of exasperation, which makes him an idiot, if true. Just the same, Mills does not deserve half of Sir Paul's wealth, because she didn't earn it, not a dime. Don't care if he beat her over the head with her own leg and shoved her down the stairs, that's only about a $100 million offense, plus some jail time.

And if it's true and he did hit her, Why should she get a acouple hundred extra million for that? She should take her 30 million and leave.

Any relationship break-up is very painful. The background is of a man coming out of what sounds like a very close and loving marriage with the distress of seeing his partner dying of cancer over a long period of time. So then he needed very much to have a new relationship. He was vulnerable & Heather Mills appeared to have suffered yet have been very resilient, and was young, attractive & vibrant. No wonder she appealed. So yes OK no fool like an old fool. Who knows her motivation, and fame and money must have been a big part in it. She doesn't come off well through this. And when two people don't really get on, despite all their needs and good intentions, feelings are hurt, there is anger, bad behaviour, accusations etc etc. For all of us who have broken up and hurt, hurt each other and our children, and behaved badly, there is shame and regrets. I feel very sorry for them both that it is front page news and that they are both so angry and hurt that they can't muster a bit more dignity. After all what's a few millions really when you have so much.

Heather is definetly a gold digger as far as I can see. Poor Paul thought he had found someone to help him through the rough patch after Linda died. Heather was just setting him up. The thing I really greive on is that they have a beautiful little child who has to have two houses soon.

The reason Paul didn't sign a pre-nup is because he thought it was unromantic like predicting that the marriage would fail. I don't want a pre-nup either. He's not a fool. Just a hopeless romantic in a set-up break-up.

I think that Paul McCartney and Linda need to have others see why they were successfully married. I
'm having trouble tracing it.

Heather's faults were not gold digging, but a leg amputation.

Why Paul married her, is difficult to determine. I sometimes want answers to why men marry at all?

My therapist said I'd be another Linda, so try and tell Paul that he needs to live with me, and then see what happens. Good idea, except that I'm morally a catholic, and need to think about it.

Now why Mills taped Paul McCartney, hmmmmmmmmmm because she was sort of mean. Paul just couldn't stop loving a woman like linda, and so he got sick of heather.
