Heather Mills' friend and publicist has gone against the model-turned-activist's wishes and spoken out about her client's bravest moment. MICHELLE ELIZABETH is so appalled by the press backlash Mills has been subjected to since splitting from Sir Paul McCartney last month (MAY06), she has agreed to talk candidly about her pal. Speaking on US news show Extra last night (05JUN06), the publicist admits she's upset by reports her friend is a money-grabbing control freak who used the former beatle for her own gain. Elizabeth insists the reports couldn't be further from the truth - Mills risked her life to have baby BEATRICE with her now-estranged husband. She says, "It was very hard for her to have the child. Heather has metal pieces in her pelvis and doctors said that she should not have a child but she went through it because I really truly believe that she actually loved Paul. "She's being attacked from everywhere, it's horrible. I need to speak, even though Heather was really not for it."
