Paul McCartney Says He May Wed New Love

Former Beatle Paul McCartney was quoted on Thursday as saying there was a good chance he would wed his girlfriend Heather Mills.

“I may get married again, but that is a decision we will make in private and only then will we make it public,” McCartney was reported by British newspapers to have said at the Cannes Film Festival in France.

“It is quite embarrassing when people come up to me in the street and say congratulations. I can say here and now we are not engaged but there is a good chance I will get married in the future.”

McCartney, 58, began seeing Mills, 33, in 1999, 18 months after his wife of 30 years, Linda, died of breast cancer.

He is in Cannes with Mills to promote the greatest hits album of his band Wings, which he formed with Linda in 1971 after the acrimonious split of the Beatles.

McCartney said Mills was a bigger fan of Wings than she was of the Beatles.
