Shocking McCartney divorce claims - World - Times Online Times Online October 18, 2006 McCartney to rebuff violence claims as divorce turns nasty By Lech Mintowt-Czyz Sir Paul McCartney was tonight understood to be preparing a fierce defence of his character after newspaper reports detailed shocking allegations about his marriage to Heather Mills. The Daily Mail quoted leaked documents that it claimed had been lodged at court, allegedly prepared by Lady McCartney, which accused Sir Paul of attacking her, taking drugs and drinking heavily. The newspaper also published claims that the 64-year-old singer failed to make allowances for her disability. The former model lost a leg in a road accident in 1993. The development marked a new low in the divorce battle for the former Beatle's £825 million fortune. The papers described in The Daily Mail accuse Sir Paul of attacking his wife four times during their four-year marriage. Among a catalogue of claims, Lady McCartney is reported to allege that Sir Paul stabbed her in the arm with a broken wine glass, tried to choke her, forbade her from having an operation because it clashed with his holiday plans and called her an "ungrateful *****". Lady McCartney claimed that her husband was so dismissive to her disability that she was left to crawl to the lavatory and up to the stairs of an aircraft when no arrangements had been made to admit her wheelchair, the newspaper reported. The newspaper reported that when Lady McCartney realised that the marriage was "irretrievably broken down" in April this year, she was reduced to leaving the family home "crawling on her hands and knees while dragging her wheelchair, crutches and her personal possessions".
