Paul McCartney Is Engaged to Nancy Shevell
Three years after a messy divorce, Paul McCartney is giving marriage another try. The Beatles legend and his longtime girlfriend Nancy Shevell are engaged to be married.
“It”s true,” the bride-to-be told the Associated Press. “That”s all, but thank you, have a good weekend.”
McCartney”s publicist Stuart Bell confirmed the news as well, but stopped short of providing any further details about the engagement, saying “we”re all thrilled for him.”
A source spilled the beans to PEOPLE earlier Friday. “Nancy and Paul are getting married,” they said. “Ring and all — very exciting.”
McCartney, 68, and Shevell, a 51-year-old New Yorker, began dating four years ago while the singer was in the midst of his split with second wife, Heather Mills. Tabloids had a field day when they were first spotted together in the Hamptons.
A source at the time told PEOPLE that, “They have the right chemistry. They”re both cool, chilled out and optimistic.”
Cool and chill was a welcome change for McCartney, who lost his first wife, Linda, to cancer in 1998 at age 56, then remarried four years later to Heather Mills. That marriage, of course, ended very very badly and cost him about $48.6 million in the divorce settlement.
