Paul McCartney makes a few digs at Heather Mills’ mouthing off

Paul McCartney maintained a very dignified silence during his divorce from Heather Mills. In fact, he was very polite during their marriage as well – especially considering how utterly miserable he must have been. Paul has finally made a few vague and veiled comments about what he went through. They’re not all out attacks or anything inflammatory like The Sun makes it sound. Considering the way Heather has been towards him, it’s more than appropriate for Paul to make a comment or two.

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has spoken out on his bitter divorce from HEATHER MILLS, saying: “I’ve been through a dark place.” Macca, 66, gave his most honest account of his love-split pain and made a thinly-veiled attack on his ex-wife. He also said he is “a man who needs love” — as he is tipped to wed US heiress Nancy Shevell, 49.

The BEATLES legend said his emotions over the break-up came out when recording latest album Electric Arguments as part of duo The Fireman. He said: “Love and light is mentioned a lot on the album. Parts of it are dark and edgy.

“It could be because I’ve been through a dark place. I am a man who needs love. Every man needs love, guys like romance. I do anyway.”

Ranting Mucca, 41 — wed to Sir Paul for six years — won a £24.3million divorce settlement last March. Macca said: “Things don’t always work out but I like the idea of being dignified. I don’t think it helps to mouth off all the time.”

McCartney did an excellent job of maintaining his dignity throughout his long and arduous divorce. Of course I’m sure Heather Mills would say the same about herself, but she’s a head case. Paul obviously cared enough about the well-being of their young daughter Beatrice not to mouth off every chance he got. Heather Mills, as I remember it, decided instead to throw a jug of water on McCartney’s attorney on the last day of their trial.

It isn’t hard to imagine that being married to Heather Mills would put any man in a dark place, like Sir Paul mentioned. It’s normal to need love, and I doubt you can get much from a woman like her. Even when he speaks out, McCartney is still polite and respectful. Though he’s denied any upcoming wedding plans with current girlfriend Nancy Shevell, the two are clearly happy together. And he deserves nothing less.

Here’s Paul McCartney poseing for photographers on 57th Street in Manhattan on January 14th. According to Splash, “photographers chased McCartney’s car and midway thru the chase, his car pulled over and McCartney exited his vehicle alone. A deal was made with the paparazzi that he pose for photographers and no one would follow the car.” What a gentleman. Images thanks to Splash.

    The man has class.

  2. morgs says:

    he’s a co-dependent person. Good luck to his next wife. Why are people so allergic to being alone?

  3. meow mix says:

    I was just wondering if there are any photos of him with out his mouth being open?
    I mean I like him but geez Paul your’re going to collect flies that way.

  4. A.J. says:

    The man must have the patience of a saint to not talk crap about Heather Mills. Hell, even having been married to the hag for as long as he was is impressive.

  5. tigerlille says:

    Paul was devoted to his first wife, Linda, and they were happily married for over 30 years. When he says that he is a man who needs love, he means that he wants to be in a long-term loving relationship. Some people, a lot of people, in fact, are happiest in a partnership. That isn’t a pathological or co-dependent need or desire, it is just normal. His marriage to Heather was a mistake, when his judgement was clouded by grief. He does not have a history of short term, unstable relationships.

  6. Cha Cha says:

    But he wasn’t afraid to mouth off to the dali lama about eating meat.

    I think he needs to realize when to talk and when to keep his trap shut. No one would have blamed him for taking digs at Heather.

  7. MT says:

    He went for a women who was much much younger than him, who was blonde and thin etc…

    He made his choice, so he can only blame himself.

    Men who choose to marry gold-diggers get exactly what they have bargained for.

  8. doodahs says:

    I second what Tigerlillie said. It’s been the understanding of many that he chose a woman who physically resembled a young Linda. Blonde, thin.. I remember people in the UK commented on this – he was in a grief haze.

  9. Bobby the K says:


    I like the man a lot.

    But I agree with morgs, being single isn’t just something you do between relationships. When you conciously make that lifestyle choice it’s very liberating.

    It’s too bad it’s a lot easier for men. And our culture/society would never encourage it.

  10. RAN says:

    I still think he’s as much to blame for that breakdown of his marriage as she is. Sure, she may have treated him like crap – we don’t know that for sure, but it COULD have been like that. But…. Like MT said, he couldn’t consider a woman his own age – no, no – he has to chase the younger versions of his beloved wife. We can call HMills a gold digger all we want, but in the end, no one held a shotgun wedding.

    He’s an old fool with a randy piece of his body attracted to younger, tighter bodies.

  11. janey says:

    Can’t buy him lo-ove

  12. Bodhi says:

    RAN~ Old fool indeed. That is a perfect description!

  13. GrnMtGirl says:

    Right on with Cha-Cha.

    I believe it would be much more appropriate to mouth off about Heather than to tell His Holiness how to live.
