I think everyone knows that Paul McCartney was married to his wife Linda until she died from cancer in 1998. I know everyone knows about his marriage and divorce with the always-irritating Heather Mills (2002-2008). So is this new engagement a good idea? ANSWER: it's none of my business, but here's the article anyway.
Soon after [his divorce from Mills], press speculation linked the songwriter with Nancy Shevell. A close friend of Paul and Linda McCartney, the self-made millionaire was married for more than two decades to American lawyer and political candidate Bruce Blakeman. However the pair divorced, and soon after Shevell began to be seen in public with Sir Paul McCartney. The singer praised the American businesswoman, who is is a board member of New York's transportation authority and a vice-president of her family business.
The wedding announcement came from McCartney's publicity team, who did not give any further details. It is not known when the ceremony will take place, although messages of congratulations are coming thick and fast.
Here's a picture of the engagement ring, rumored to cost $650,000.
He's 68, she's 51. At least they're close in age. She's really pretty!
Am I wrong, or does Shevell rhyme with Michelle? Now I have this stuck in my head.
