Heather Mills plays video of Sir Paul McCartney

Heather Mills has posted an old video clip on her website of ex-husband Sir Paul McCartney praising her.

In the footage, Paul is seen recalling how he was nearly moved to tears as he overheard Heather – who lost her left leg below the knee in a motorcycle accident in 1993 – talking to the father of an amputee victim.

He is seen saying: “It was very emotional for me, hearing how strong she was. I don’t know about him, but I was nearly crying.”

In contrast, Paul has removed every reference to Heather from his official website.

The former model – who earlier this month was awarded a UKP24.3 million divorce payout following her split from The Beatles legend – was recently criticised after she posted old videos of Sir Richard Branson and Hilary Clinton gushing over her.

Meanwhile, Paul, 65, is reportedly getting over the trauma of the past few weeks by enjoying a holiday with rumoured new love interest Nancy Shevall. The musician is said to be staying on the tiny island of Jumby Bay, near Antigua, with the 47-year-old American socialite, who he was spotted kissing last November.
