Paul McCartney accused of drinking, drug use
Court papers for their impending divorce filed by Heather Mills, according to bangshowbiz.com, say Sir Paul got rough on four occasions, pushing Heather over a coffee table, stabbing her in the arm with a broken glass, choking her and shoving her into a bath while she was four weeks pregnant.
She claims he also hit the bottle constantly, smoked pot and forced her to cancel an operation because he had vacation plans.
A McCartney source replied to Heather's charges in Britain's Daily Mirror, saying Sir Paul "denies the claims completely and cannot believe he would ever be accused of such behavior. He's absolutely furious. He only ever cared for her."
The following allegations are extracts from an alleged court document published in London's Evening Standard:
("The petitioner" referred to below, is McCartney)
October 2002: The petitioner loudly pointed out that the respondent was in a bad mood, in front of other people. When they returned home the petitioner and respondent began to argue about the petitioner's behaviour. The petitioner grabbed the respondent by the neck and pushed her over a coffee table. He then went outside and, in his drunken state, fell down a hill, cutting his arm.
August 2003: In Long Island the respondent asked the petitioner if he had been smoking marijuana. He became angry, grabbed her neck and started choking her.
October 2003: The petitioner often told the respondent when she was pregnant that he did not want her to breast-feed their child, making the comment "they are my breasts" and "I don't want a mouthful of breast milk".
November 19, 2003: The petitioner required the respondent to defer an essential operation on her leg because it would have interfered with holiday plans.
December 19, 2003: The respondent had a broken pelvic plate but petitioner insisted that she cook for him while she was on crutches, could barely move and was in agony.
September/October 2005: The petitioner called Ms Mills an "ungrateful bitch" in front of their driver when she explained why an office he had provided was not right for her.
April 2006: An argument occurred during which the petitioner poured a bottle of red wine over the respondent's head and then threw what remained in his wine glass at her.
The petitioner then reached to grab the respondent's wine glass, and broke the bowl of the glass from the stem. He then lunged at the respondent with the sharp stem of the glass, which cut and pierced the respondent's arm just below the elbow causing her to bleed profusely.
He proceeded to manhandle the respondent, flinging her into her wheelchair and wheeling it outside, screaming at her to apologise for "winding him up".
