Piers Morgan has hit back at reports that he was instrumental in Sir Paul McCartney’s phone tapping, and claimed that the singer’s ex-wife Heather Millers was behind the deed.
Sir Paul McCartney spoke out after Millers accused a Mirror Group journalist of tapping her voicemails from him.
However, Morgan, 46, who was the editor of the Daily Mirror at the time, has denied the claims and slammed Mills, 43, claiming that she has just been trying to ward off attention away from her own mischievous activities.
“When Heather Mills poked her head above the parapet, the whole thing got completely ridiculous,” the Daily Star quoted Morgan as saying.
“Paul McCartney is apparently claiming someone hacked his phone. I suspect it was Heather because, if you study the divorce papers, Paul accused Heather then of hacking into his phones and passing information to the papers.
“So I suspect what she was doing was hiding herself from the whole thing. “Heather Mills is not the best person to be throwing any dynamite at anyone on this,” he added.
