Can’t Buy Me Love

by | 9th, June 2006

ON the font page of the Mirror, Paul McCartney holds up two fingers.

At first glance it looks like a ‘V’ for victory salute. It is only when you place the gesture in context that you realise it might just be Paul telling his lawyers how many hundreds of millions to give his estranged wife Heather.

Having seen the pictures of a younger Heather modelling baby oil and its uses for a German adult self-help manual, you’d forgive Paul for giving anything to get rid of his wife of four years.

But it seems not. The Mirror says Paul wants everyone to leave her alone. “LET HER BE!” says the headline.

So worried about Heather is Paul that he calls her up six times a day. Whether Paul is speaking words of wisdom is a moot point. But a pal tells the paper that Paul told him: “I’m really worried about her. She’s in pieces.”

Indeed she is. And resisting all temptation to mention Heather’s leg, we note that Paul is still wearing his gold wedding ring.

It appears that he has not yet moved on. “I can’t believe the cruelty towards her,” says Paul. He adds: “There’s nothing in her past I don’t know about. Nothing.”

That position will be tested in the coming weeks when the divorce lawyers start digging, and a curly haired male mo-del sells his story to top-shelf titles…
