I was surprised to hear that Paul McCartney and Heather Mills are separating. I always thought they seemed like a very well-matched couple. It just goes to show how appearances can be deceptive. It’s difficult for any couple nowadays to keep a relationship going and it must be even harder when you’re in the public eye, with the world’s media tracking your every move through a camera lens. Apparently Heather found it difficult to live in Paul’s shadow. With the popularity of The Beatles, I’m sure it would be difficult for any woman. Also Linda was a very hard act to follow. According to media reports, Paul was set in his ways and didn’t like how Heather tried to “smarten” him up and preferred to go round in jeans and trainers. I’m sure there was fault on both sides but it’s just a shame that it’s come to this and the couple weren’t able to work out their differences. I hope the media gives them some space and privacy to work out an amicable divorce settlement, for the sake of their little daughter.
