Sir Paul McCartney has hit his lowest ebb for years since learning of his estranged wife’s secret porn past, according to his friends.
The 63-year-old Beatles legend reportedly looked “extremely tired” as he visited the Liverpool Performing Arts school.
It was his first public engagement since The Sun unearthed pornographic pictures of Heather Mills McCartney — mother of his two-year-old daughter Beatrice.
But despite his exhaustion, the rocker was determined not to miss the long-standing appointment and spent four hours with pupils.
Mark Featherstone-Witty, Sir Paul’s business partner and chief executive of the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, said the star was clearly struggling.
“It was the lowest I’ve seen him since Linda died, as you would expect. Obviously they are totally different circumstances, but he looked extremely tired and worn out with the whole situation.
He is going through a bad patch as everyone knows — but despite that he is trying to continue a normal life,” Featherstone-Witty was quoted by The Sun, as saying.
“Inevitably he is still speaking to Heather, they have a child together and have to work that out. His daughter Stella and his family have been extremely loyal.
Paul may be well-off, but there are certain things money can’t protect you against — especially death and relationships. He only flew here for the day and he returned home in the evening — but the students were thrilled he could still make it,” he added.
