Sir Paul Mccartney - Mills Takes Credit For Beatles Itunes Deal

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY's ex-wife HEATHER MILLS is adamant she is to thank for THE BEATLES' tracks finally becoming available online - insisting she "organised it all".
Executives at music label EMI, the company that owns the Beatles recordings, have long been in talks with surviving bandmembers MCCartney and Ringo Starr to put the Fab Four's back catalogue on the iTunes digital store.
The band's music was launched on the internet last month (Nov10) and proved a big hit with more than two million songs and over 450,000 albums sold in the first week alone.
Mills, who divorced MCCartney in 2008 with a $38.9 million (£24.3 million) payout, is adamant the deal only happened because of her help setting up the deal with Apple boss Steve Jobs - but she has decided against taking legal action in a bid for compensation.
She tells Britain's Daily Mail, "iTunes? I organised it all with Steve Jobs. But there's no way I'm going back to court for more money. It was all settled at the time and that's it."
