War of the Maccas continues on…the lengthy article update.

Here’s the latest from the UK Daily Mail.  It looks like our loveable, and cuddly Sir Paul has grown a set of steel ones, and put his foot down in the coming divorce proceedings.  Here’s what the Daily Mail has to say about the sad state of the Macca marriage…

When they first split, Paul was devastated and Heather was set to walk away with £200m. But now he’s fighting back – dictating every detail of their break-up while she falls apart
