Paul MCCartney once sung Heather Mills a song down the phone in an attempt to apologise for an argument between the pair when they were still a couple - and the whole thing was overheard by a journalist, it was revealed, as Mills took to the stand to testify in the protracted Levison Inquiry brought on by wrongdoings of members of Rupert Murdoch's News International Corp and UK newspapers including the News Of The World and the Daily Mirror.
CNN reports that the former Beatle left around 25 messages for her in 2001, including one where he tried to make up with her by singing Mills said. "One of them said, 'Please forgive me,' and he sang a little ditty of one of his songs onto the voice mail," said MCCartney's former wife, going on to say that she then received a call from a journalist - who can't be named for legal reasons - who said that he'd overheard her voicemail. Laughing as she told him there was no way he could've heard without obtaining it illegally, Mills continued "I promise you, if you report this story, even if it's true, you have obtained the information illegally, and I will do something about it," adding "and he never reported the story."
Mills continued and said she'd never authorized anyone being able to make a recording of her voicemail messages, neither had she recorded them herself - claiming that she deleted them instantly after hearing them.
