McCartneys: Clifford vs Hall?

Three items on this topic:

Heather on TV this morning
Coincidentally, the very morning that the Mail details Heather McCartney Mill's case against Paul in their divorce case, she pops up on BBC1's City Hospital to talk about her latest bone op and how something called therapeutic magnetic resonance is helping her through the undoubted physical agony.

Asked about the coincidence she tells host Nadia Sawalha: "I was coming on the programme anyway."

Then she relates how she used to have to crawl to the loo for a piss at night. Much the same is said in her divorce papers. She claims Paul would not let her have an antique bedpan under their bed to save her crawling to the bathroom at night, saying it would be like "an old woman's home".

Of latest travails she adds: "Just because you put on a brave face doesn't mean you're not suffering. You have to have a sense of humour or you would go mad."

Heather's PR
I notice that Heather's PR is Phil Hall - the former editor of News of the World and a former colleague of Max Clifford - the latter's quite friendly with Paul and has been going around relating a very strange story about Heather that's probably actionable. I also notice that the Mail says the divorce papers were leaked to it ... now, who benefits from this leak? ...

Macca replies
For the full report see the Mail:

Sir Paul was unavailable for official comment today but a close source vehemently denied the accusations made in the papers lodged in the High Court's family division. The source also accused Ms Mills's public relations team of "orchestrating the leak to maximise sympathy for her."

The source said: "This is coming from a woman with a well-documented problem with the truth. This document was leaked with the very specific intention in mind of damaging Paul's reputation and trying to hurt Paul.

"She has conducted a whole orchestrated PR campaign throughout of photocalls, leaked stories and now this. Paul denies this version of events completely.

"The suggestion for instance he stabbed her with a wine bottle is an outrageous accusation which is designed to damage his reputation and hurt him.î Geoff Baker, McCartney's former publicist, said: "Heather Mills is a complete fantasist and I would not believe her if she told me the sun set in the West."

That's enough guff abut the McCartneys. Get a grip.

Like it: I myself couldn't help noticing the cinematic reference:

Thank you Jo. The Baby Jane movie reference is rather wonderful. Which makes me think that as I write somebody must be dreaming up a biopic of the dreadful McCartney marriage. The two principals Heather and Paul could be played by Sadie Frost and Bill Nighy - Sadie is quite used to crawling about floors in a state of disrepair while Bill might just capture the old Beatle's last hurrah in the bedroom.
