Paul McCartney has been freely discussing his recent split with wife Heather Mills McCartney, but his lips were sealed after British tabloid The Sun ran nude photos of his 38-year-old partner. The pictures had originally been published in a 1988 German book titled Die Freuden Der Liebe (The Joys of Love).
Why is Paul keeping so quiet? Reports say that Sir Paul was embarrassed and shocked by the digging up of the photos, which The Sun has been touting with ax-grinding headlines like "Lady Macca Hard Core Porn Shame" and "Heather's Filthy Past." Mills-McCartney's lawyers have questioned the accuracy of the word "porn," and the photo shoot definitely seems to be more Cinemax than Spice Channel, featuring nude trysts in which sex was only simulated.
"This photo shoot, undertaken approximately 20 years ago, was for the purpose of a 'lover's guide' to caring relationships and instructive sex in the same way as many other books on the market," read part of the letter sent to The Sun by Mills-McCartney's attorneys. The Sun was quick to reply that the book did not contain text, instructional or otherwise.
Rumors had already been sailing about the impending divorce, which will likely involve a battle over the couple's two-year-old daughter, Beatrice, as well as McCartney's substantial estate.
Anonymous sources close to McCartney said that the singer had always been worried about his young wife's past, and that the steamy photo shoot confirmed his worst fears -- which seems unlikely, as he was previously confronted with the tabloid-fueled rumor that his wife had once worked as an extremely high-class hooker.
