-   -   EXCLUSIVE: Heather Mills sues her former publicist for 250,000 (http://www.beatlelinks.net/forums/showthread.php?t=36500)

I think it's more about whoring for attention than it is about money. People like Heather Mills and Michele Elyzabeth can't stand to not be the center of attention, no matter the cost.

I wish they would retire.

Ahh so that's what's happening, is it? "I remember I'd get up in the morning, sue someone..."

No doubt Heather is the only one in the world who sues someone for public slamming. No one else has ever done that and no one would do that when for instance a "publicist" or anyone like that would tell all these things about someone. No one but Heather takes legal action. What a bitch huh..

Well, I must admit that Heather seems overly keen on suing people in general, although, in THIS instance, I don't blame her at all. Even "bitches" have a right to protect their privacy. If ever a person deserved to be sued it's this Countess woman. A PR person should know better than to go public with this kind of information regarding a former client, irrespective of the circumstances. It smacks of revenge to me as, if she only wanted the money, there are better and surer ways to go about!

what this publicist did (nice word spell btw) is unacceptable so the 250.000 is far too little and I surely hope it will be a lot more.

Amen to that!

Amen, Sister! This Miss Elyzabeth has a problem or three. I agree that if anybody gave anybody else good reason to sue them, this Countess woman would top my short list. The whole thing sounds cruel spirited and ruthless and I don't like to see people being treated that way.

Asha Sep 25, 2008 06:26 AM

I guess life was too quiet for Heather. She just needed to be in the news again.

I'm sorry... Actions speak louder than words.

She has enough money, she doesn't need to sue to rectify slander. Instead of running to court because she doesn't like what someone is saying about her, she should be acting in a manner that would show the world that she's a better person... like going out & doing good in the world instead of wasting time & money in the court systems.

I wish she'd just get on with her life...

Apart from the fact that I disagree to this position because many people, especially in the USA, who get slammer, will quite quickly build a lawsuit, I wanna address the nice initiative which Heather took in New York for poor children which was sadly snowed under here at Links by some weird discussion about the unawareness of what veggie burgers are these days and where to buy healty food in New York.

So, of course some fans of a Beatle will automatically have a certain position towards an ex-wife of that Beatle, that is human nature as long as there are married Beatles, but strictly spoken you can not disagree that after what this "publicist" said about Heather that Heather taking action against it is not a common normal response.

Maybe I can remind you guys of when a rumour came about about a book Heather was to be writing many here could not wait to pick up the "sue her" !!!!! initiatives? :smile1:

Well, I live in the USA & I don't personally know one person who has ever sued someone for anything, let alone for slander. :laugh5: (I guess it's just another one of those lovely misconceptions the outside world has of Americans? Oh no, wait... Maybe I just hang out with the wrong Americans? That must be it! My friends aren't rich & famous & have nothing better to do but run to the courts? Oh no, wait! Aren't all Americans filthy rich? HA! Well, whatever the reason...)

Please re-read my post. I did not say that Heather hasn't helped people... I have never said that. What I was trying to convey was that rather than taking time in court, she should use the time to continue to help people & work for causes. Someone has brought her back into the news media by slandering her, & it would just show she is above gossip, slander & not seeking further media attention if, by her actions, she continued to do charity work rather than stopping the assistance to people & animals who could benefit from her time.

What are you talking about? This doesn't even make sense.

It is unfair to state that the only reason some of us disagree with this is because she used to be married to Paul. In my defence, that has nothing to do with it. And because I know Asha personally and very well, I know that is not the case for her either. We are not that pathetic.

And you can remind us of anything you like. Just so long as I can remind you of the fact that we are entitled to disagree with something that you might not like. And don't go saying you have never said that. I quote: "..you cannot disagree..".

oldbeatlechick Sep 25, 2008 07:59 AM

I think the point being made FP is that these things can happen without the whole world having to know about it! Heather takes delight in airing her dirty laundry in public! I agree she has recently done some good for veganism, but she spoils it with this behaviour!
Unfortunately Heather is working on the principle no publicity is bad publicity, poor misguided fool!

LMAO! I didn't even see the post that you are replying to, Lucy. Haha! :rolling3:

OMG! No, I don't care who she was or wasn't married to. My post has nothing to do with her divorcing Paul. If it were true, I'd have to hate Cynthia, Maureen & Pattie for divorcing the other three! :rolling3: I should also hate Cynthia & Pattie for writing books. How dare these ex-wives tell us about their imperfect husbands! (As IF they are/were perfect!) :rolling3: (I think it's yet another stereo type... we are female fans & therefore we are so IN LOVE we can't see how human our PRECIOUS Beatles are! :barf3: :barf3: :barf3: Yeah, let's just use generalizations once again... we're all alike after all!) :rolling3:

My response is only based on her choice of her use of time & energy. However, sadly, there are a lot of people who use their time & energy in unproductive ways.

Hari's Chick Sep 25, 2008 08:10 AM

Do you guys really think it is wrong for Heather to defend herself or want her named cleared from being attacked verbally, publically?

You guys really think that is wrong or bad?

LOL typical US reply. Don't take it so serious? It is common knowledge worldwide that things like this happen a lot and not only in the US. Insurers and lawyers live from these things, and glossy magazine reporters :tongue1:

I did re-read it :smile2:

then we agree? but your post does not read that way...yet

"Instead of running to court because she doesn't like what someone is saying about her, she should be acting in a manner that would show the world that she's a better person... like going out & doing good in the world instead of wasting time & money in the court systems."

well, she probably spent 5 minutes over the phone telling her lawyer "sue that B#@# and take care of it" and then went along preparing for the charity event :dance:

Holy Moly.

Good Grief, what is happening?

No comment. This is very sad.

Hari's Chick Sep 25, 2008 08:17 AM

If nothing else, just my thoughts here... Heather paid her publicist big money, I assume. The publicist lets just say...did not do her job, at the end of the day. So, Heather should at least be refunded the money given to her publicist so then maybe that money could be better spent elsewhere, for instance like on a kind gesture like Heather did in New York.

I think we might all agree to that? :smile1:

I very much agree to that last sentence Asha :smile1:

Maybe to get facts back in order? The Publicist started a huge slammer campaign against Heather.

That was action one.

Then after a while Heather very logically took action as many people do in such cases.

So now people here conclude that Heather is the bad one?

Very funny...and typical


Fine with me... :wave1:

I am sure this all very funny but again what you say is that Heather is making the wrong choice whereas I am only saying that she is secondarilyy reacting to a public assult made her way.

She did not take initiative for it but now is put in the spotlights only because as many other people do, she reacts to public slammer.

But only because she is Hearther she now is the bad one.

I believe that rather sucks, but... no doubt I am wrong.

Now, wait a moment! Let's keep things straight here. I'm no fan of Heather but let's be fair, hm? It's not Heather that went to the tabloids this time; it was this Michele Elyzabeth's who gave an interview to New of the World about her former client. Heather hasn't as far as I know given any interviews regarding this issue. If she has, please post. What is cited in Daily Mail is not a public statement made by Heather but an excerpt from the filed paperwork itself. May I remind you that the article stated very clearly that it's a "Breach of Confidence" suit against Ms Elzabeth and "the case is being handled by renowned barrister Jonathan Crystal". Such filings are public, hence the reason Daily Mail had access to this information.

Also, there's already a legal dispute, brought on by M Elyzabeth, for a supposedly $300,000 unpaid bill, which is yet to be resolved. That legal dispute has direct bearing on this one, which is probably why Heather filed her suit. It's certainly enough reason for just about anyone to file a counter suit, including me! Perhaps my fellow linkers wouldn't do a thing to recoup that amount of money but I'm sorry to say I'm mercenary enough to care!
