Paul McCartney's peace offering
Sir Paul McCartney sent estranged wife Heather Mills a caring note on the eve of their divorce battle.
The Beatles legend, who will appear at London's High Court for the fifth day of the pair's divorce hearing today (15.02.08), sent Heather a bunch of flowers and urged her to remain civil for the sake of their four-year-old daughter Beatrice last Sunday (10.02.08).
According to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, the note read: "Please remember you and I are both human and have one very special person in common. Please let's not forget this when you are in court."
Heather appeared to be feeling the strain of the court battle yesterday (14.02.08).
The 40-year-old vegan, who is representing herself after splitting from her legal team last year, sat alone in her car for 20 minutes before she entered court.
A source said: "It is a harrowing process. Heather seemed very stressed. There are fears she is starting to crack under the pressure."
Heather was seen frantically whispering to her sister Fiona and her personal trainer Ben Amigoni during breaks in the hearing.
In contrast, Paul emerged from the hearing smiling and waving to fans as he chatted to his lawyer Fiona Shackleton.
Today is set to be the final day of the scheduled time allotted to the case. It could continue into Monday (18.02.08) if Judge Mr. Justice Bennett believes it would be helpful.
Heather is reportedly demanding a £60 million cash pay out, along with at least two homes, two nannies, medical cover, a personal trainer, household staff and a secretary.
She claims marrying Paul, 65, ruined her life and she has become the victim of a vicious campaign by Beatles fans.
The pair split in 2006 after four years of marriage.
