Mecca’s blooming romance

LONDON: The Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney was spotted kissing new girlfriend Nancy Shevell on a boat called Linda in New York’s Long Island.

According to, McCartney has a special fondness for the boat, which he has named after his first wife. During the troubled times of his divorce from Heather Mills, McCartney said of his boat, “It’s my antidote to chaos. I like the freedom, the peace.” McCartney, 66, now seems happier with the 47-year-old American heiress Nancy who has just overcome breast cancer. The two have been involved in a whirlwind romance. Nancy is set to divorce her husband Bruce Blakeman after being married for 23 years.
