Heather Mills McCartney (Paul's wife) loses leg after row with J-Lo's guards

Mills McCartney loses leg after row with J-Lo's guards

15/09/2005 - 08:09:31

Paul McCartney’s wife Heather Mills McCartney lost her prosthetic leg during a violent confrontation with security guards at Jennifer Lopez's New York office.

The incident happened on Tuesday as the model turned animal rights activist attempted to deliver a People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals (PETA) DVD showing creatures being killed for fur to Lopez, following a demonstration at which the 37-year-old pleaded with fans to boycott the superstar's music, movies and clothes because she uses fur in her fashion range, Sweetface.

After striding into the building opposite Manhattan's Bryant Park, accompanied by an entourage of journalists and photographers, McCartney Mills - who lost a leg after being hit by a car in 1993 - was confronted by burley minders who yelled: "You have no authority to be here.

"Get out! Leave the floor immediately!"

In the tussle that ensued, Mills McCartney's prosthetic leg became detached. She bent down and clutched her knee in pain, before asking to use a bathroom so she could reattach the leg.

Guards refused and she was forced to cling onto a photographer as she carried out the humiliating task on a stairwell.

Photographer Richard Corkery tells 25hoursonline.com: "I saw her touch her knee and I could see she was in pain. She limped to the ladies room but it was locked. I found another door open. It led on to the stairwell. At least she could have a private moment, which is what she needed."

According to 25hoursonline.com, Lopez's guards continued to verbally attack the group – screaming: "Call the cops! Call the cops!" - until Mills McCartney recovered her composure and was able to leave the building.

I support trapping and the fur industry.

No sympathy from me.

...as she carried out the humiliating task on a stairwell.

Not to get off the subject, but what is so "humiliating" about re-attaching a prosthetic leg?

They should have kept the leg so that J-Lo could have it mounted and displayed over her Aspen lodge fireplace.

Maybe she took the leg off herself and it was knocked out of her hands before she could beat somebody with it.I never knew Paul's wife was missing a wheel.

It might make one think that there are consequences to one's actions. Such trauma!

You know, I'm not PETA-file, and this woman was the one who instigated the trouble, but it's never looks good when you take a handicapped woman's leg off.

Mrs. McCartney was trespassing. She should have just mailed the DVD to J-Lo. She'll get over it.

Speaking of J-Lo's clothing line, it doesn't seem to be doing too well. I spotted the clothes at a deep discount outlet.

I would have thought that Heather Mills McCartney would have bodyguards of her own. Her husband has been far more successful than Lopez can ever hope to be.

Ok, I feel kind of bad doing this, but hey: if Kerry can make assassination jokes and get away with it, fair is fair. They started this war of words, and by gum, I'm out to win it. In 'honor' of Kerry:

The proverbial one legged man in a kicking contest?

If this wasn't PETA related, I don't think I'd be laughing. But PETA makes me laugh to begin with! And then a one-legged woman starts a fight?

"...it's never looks good when you take a handicapped woman's leg off."

On the other hand, you get a leg up.

For a second I thought they clubbed her like a baby seal with the leg... but then I figured out that was just my mind playing tricks on me.

Wrong. Wear MORE furs, give the guards a raise, publicly announce it [wearing a big fur], and pose on a set with guns. She'd be a major hit. Yeah, but I know, it's probably not her style.
