Mccartney Reclaims Art Collection

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has reclaimed his art collection from the house of estranged wife HEATHER MILLS. Ten million pounds ($19.5 million) worth of pictures, including paintings by PABLO PICASSO and PIERRE-AUGUSTE RENOIR were removed from a lodge house at the former BEATLE's Sussex, England estate amid "security fears" for the works. Mills discovered the paintings were missing when she returned to the lodge as part of her Christmas and New Year celebrations, but was shocked when access codes had been changed. According to British newspaper The Sun, MCCartney informed the former model of the removal by text message yesterday (28DEC06). Speaking to The Sun, a friend of Mills' said, "Heather is staggered. Several pictures including Renoirs and Picassos which have been hanging on the walls for months have been taken. "The police spoke to Sir Paul's security guards, who confirmed he had removed them."

Do not blame Paul one bit....he has had those paintings for years. Would not be surprised if Heather tried to get those in her settlement. Why should she be alarmed or shocked that he removed them from anywhere on his own property? I was surprised to hear she was not in her newfound abide of LA....course the US is not putting out the welcome mat for her.
