Mills-McCartney Sues 2 British Newspapers

Heather Mills-McCartney seems determined to prove a "woman's wrath hath no bounds" by suing two newspapers over "false, damaging and immensely upsetting" stories about her divorce from Paul McCartney, according to a statement Tuesday by her lawyers.

The law firm Mishcon de Reya named the Daily Mail and London's Evening Standard as the subject of legal proceedings, adding that a suit would also be filed against The Sun.

"She cannot sue -- for now, at least -- every single newspaper that has published false, damaging, and immensely upsetting statements about her. She should not thereby be taken to have accepted that these statements are true," the statement read.

"She is pursued everywhere she goes. She is stalked by press photographers, who congregate outside her home and chase after her in cars -- regardless of her safety or the safety of her daughter," her lawyers said.

What a mess.
