Mills Loses Battle With Morgan

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY's ex-wife HEATHER MILLS has had her complaint against TV talent show judge PIERS MORGAN dismissed by a press watchdog after she accused him of berating her in his British newspaper column.
The former model lodged an official objection with Britain's Press Complaints Commission (PCC) about an article which Morgan wrote for the Mail on Sunday in March (10), headlined 'The 100 British celebrities who really matter'.
Mills, who was named as number 100 on the list, objected to Morgan's claim that she is the writer of "nothing but bleating letters of complaint to newspapers and divorce lawyers".
She also complained about the description of his "eternal shame" of having introduced the charity campaigner to her famous former husband.
The America's Got Talent judge has long claimed to have been responsible for sparking the romance between Mills and MCCartney at a charity event - but in Mills' complaint, she called the story "inaccurate".
Executives at the PCC have now ruled in Morgan's favour, insisting the former newspaper boss did not breach the Editors' Code of Practice, according to Britain's Metro newspaper.
The ruling states, "It was not in dispute that it was at an event organised by Mr Morgan's newspaper that Sir Paul had seen Ms Mills for the first time, that he contacted her shortly afterwards (apparently at Mr Morgan's suggestion) and that he and Ms Mills subsequently began dating.'
"Given that Mr Morgan had invited both guests to the event, the Commission did not consider that it was misleading to suggest that he had effectively been the means to their introduction."
