Former editor admits he listened to a private message the Beatle left for ex-wife Heather Mills
Former Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan has allegedly admitting to listening to the voicemails of Paul McCartney.
At one stage I was played a tape of a message Paul had left for Heather on her mobile phone. It was heartbreaking. The couple had clearly had a tiff, Heather had fled to India, and Paul was pleading with her to come back. He sounded lonely, miserable and desperate, and even sang ‘We Can Work It Out’ into the answerphone.
The admission was unearthed today (July 27) by political whistleblower Guido Fawkes. There has been no explanation of how the message was played to him or why he had access to Mills‘ voicemail.
He is currently under pressure to leave his role as the host of CNN talkshow Tonight With Piers Morgan after being accused of taking part in phone hacking.
He has issued a statement denying all involvement and has labeled his accusers as “liars, druggie ex-bankrupts and conmen”.
