Paul McCartney finds new love across the pond: reports

Former Beatle Paul McCartney seems to be healing quite well from his divorce, falling into the arms of an American brunette, tabloid reports said Wednesday.
McCartney, 65, is in the midst of an ugly divorce from Heather Mills, a former model and activist, with whom he has a four-year-old daughter.
His across-the-pond flame, Linda Shevell, 47, is a businesswoman separated from her millionaire attorney husband. They have been married more than 20 years and have a teenaged daughter, according to The New York Post. The reports said the two have known each other for a long time, since Shevell and her husband knew McCartney when he was married to his first wife, American Linda McCartney. Linda McCartney died of cancer in 1998.
Mills last week said the pressure of the divorce proceedings had driven her close suicide and urged a boycott of Britain’s tabloid newspapers. She said she had suffered 18 months of abuse at the hands of the media, likening her treatment to that of Princess Diana.
