In legal papers leaked to the British press last week (ends20OCT06), Mills claims the former BEATLE kept her as a ‘prisoner’ in the bedroom in the morning, as she was not allowed to get out of bed early – but passages from her lifestyle book, LIFE BALANCE, are at odds with lawyers’ current allegations.
The papers prepared by Mills’ lawyers say, “The petitioner (McCartney) refused to allow the respondent (Mills) to get out of bed early in the morning even though she would wake up early and wish to use the time for essential physiotherapy for her leg and to attend to emails and administrative tasks before the staff arrived or their child woke up.
However, details in Mills’ book published earlier this year (MAY06) contradict the alleged ‘domestic horrors’ of life with McCartney. She says, “As a working wife and mother, I have learnt that setting the alarm 30 minutes earlier each morning can make all the difference. It allows me a bit of personal space before the day begins.”
