McCartney court battle turned into computer game

2008-03-29 00:00

Heather Mills’s bitter court battle with Beatle Paul McCartney has been turned into an Internet computer game, Mucca Chucka.

The game is set in a courtroom and recreates the moment when Heather threw water over Paul’s lawyer Fiona Shackleton.

Players must use their mouse to help a cartoon Heather hurl water at Paul or Shackleton when they pop up on the screen. However, if they soak the judge by accident, Heather’s divorce settlement goes down.

An ITV documentary this week exposed Mills as a liar for claiming that she was offered a peerage by former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

The former model boasted that Blair and someone called Lord MacDonald had promised to make her Baroness Mills in 2001. The prestigious title of Baron or Baroness is often awarded to people who have shown loyalty and service to Britain.

Heather, the ex-wife of Sir Paul McCartney, claimed she couldn’t decide whether to accept the honour because she felt a “bit odd”.

However, the new ITV documentary McCartney vs McCartney: The Ex Files tracked down three Lord MacDonalds — none of whom could remember ever meeting Mills.

British journalist Jasper Gerard, whom Mills made the claims to, says he was shocked by her “incredible” lies. He said: “I was pretty gobsmacked that somebody who was essentially just a model and a bit of a part-time campaigner, best known for being Paul McCartney’s girlfriend, should be offered a peerage.

“Heather also told me she had cancelled a meeting with Bill Clinton in case her endorsement affected a U.S. election outcome. I kept waiting for her to smile and say ‘I’m joking’, but she meant it.”

Heather (40) became Lady McCartney when she married The Beatles legend in 2002.

However, she lost the title after her divorce was finalised and has reverted to using her maiden name.
