Heather Mills, Paul Mcartney's ex, demanded that he quit smoking cannabis before she would marry him. She said choose between me or the spliffs.
'Him and (his first wife) Linda smoked it every day for the whole of their lives together,' she said of a relationship that lasted more than 30 years. 'But I would not get married to him if he was taking drugs. I hate it.'
In a widely reported interview at the begining of this year she said "I could not have him lying to our child (they have a two year old daughter, Beatrice) about not taking drugs and then going out for a sneaky puff.'
Apparently she knows a lot about people not telling the truth: Her last ex is reported as saying he found that during their relationship "If she said it was raining I would have to look out the window to make sure it was true."
• Ex-Wings member Denny Laine once said that Macca got through an ounce of cannabis a day. In the mid-Nineties, Noel Gallagher was summoned to a party at McCartney's house by Paul's daughter, Stella. According to Oasis insider Ian Robertson, in his book What's the Story?, the door was opened by Paul, who presented the asthmatic Noel with a spliff.
So did he really quit? What were the arguments really about?
• schmoo quit cannabis four months ago - it was hard. It is not addictive like tobacco, but the main problem with cannabis is not having any.
Don't worry Paul. 1. You may get back together - then you could really be in trouble. 2. There are plenty of other fish in the sea - as well as sharks.
So far Paul has not denied rumours that he is joining the 'Real Fathers For Justice'.
