Sir Paul McCartney’s ex-wife Heather Mills blatantly attacked the former Beatle on Late Late Show, an Irish late night talk show, last Friday. In the interview, she berated McCartney, believing that she currently holds more relevance than the music icon.
“If I go down the street, all I get is kids coming up to me. Half of them don’t even know who he is. That’s why he’s got to do songs with Rihanna and Kanye West, so people remember.”

She believes that people are more aware of her charitable works and entrepreneurial success than of McCartney’s musical career.
Mills proudly proclaimed, “Most of the time I have people going, ‘Oh my God, you’re a ski racer’ or ‘You help the animals’, I own the biggest vegan company in the world, most of the money I earn goes into helping animals, disabled kids, landmine clearing charities, things that are changing the world.”
In the present, Mills is indeed an active supporter of various charitable groups. She claimed her fame in the 1990s when her left leg was amputated due to a road accident. She went on to write an inspirational book, Out on a Limb, and established the Heather Mills Health Trust, which supports amputees and the cause against landmines. Mills achieved success in the world of business when she acquired Redwood Foods and established her own vegetarian brand, VBites Food Limited.
However, despite Mills’ numerous accomplishments, famous British journalist and close friend to Paul McCartney, Piers Morgan, asserts that she is a “greedy, ghastly, lying fantasist” who couldn’t have achieved everything that she has now if not for her association with McCartney.
In a Mail Online article, Morgan strongly affirms his belief that Mills married the former Beatle because of personal interests. In detail, he discussed, “… Heather married Paul McCartney for his fame, money and to further her own career. The same Paul McCartney she now so gleefully trashes. If it wasn’t for those reasons, then she wouldn’t have taken his millions (She was awarded $$25,000 for every single day she was with Paul, the marital equivalent of winning the Lottery) …”
Morgan also debated Mills’ statement that she is more relevant than McCartney. He wrote, “… I suspect performing with Paul McCartney was a dream come true for both Rihanna and Kanye, as it is for almost every singer in the world …”
McCartney is now married to his third wife, Nancy Shevell, also an entrepreneur involved in the transportation industry. He has not released any statement as response to Mills’ media attack.
