Mccartney Aims To Maintain Dignity In Divorce
SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has vowed to maintain his silence about his divorce with estranged wife HEATHER MILLS, because he's determined to "remain dignified".
The former Beatle and Mills attended a settlement meeting before a judge at London's Royal Courts Of Justice on Thursday (11Oct07), but failed to agree on the terms of their divorce despite eight hours of talks.
The pair, who wed in 2002 before splitting four years later (06), are keen to settle the dispute ahead of their daughter Beatrice's fourth birthday on 30 October (07).
MCCartney says, "Going through a divorce is a very painful thing. As (former British Prime Minister) Winston Churchill once said, 'If you're going through hell, keep going!'
"The only solution is to remain dignified. If I don't keep a silence about it, I lose this idea of being dignified."
MCCartney reveals the "difficult time" has proven to be a very creative one - he's writing and recording more music than ever: "Music is the therapy for me. In fact, going through difficulties has only concentrated my desire to make good music."
