Piers Morgan to Paul McCartney : we didnít hack you

NEW YORK ( - Piers Morgan has responded to countless allegations that he knew of, condoned or practiced phone hacking while editor of the Daily Mirror, but Monday night on Conan OíBrien he switched roles and became the accuser.Morgan accused Heather Mills, the ex-wife of Paul McCartney, of hacking her former husband, the same charge Mills has leveled against Morgan.

I saw that! And Conan also made a joke about Beatlemania just now reaching Cuba. Piers also said he introduced Heather to Paul and joked it cost Paul millions of dollars in doing so.

As far as Pierce's comment about apologizing for introducing Paul to Heather Mills, I hope one day Beatrice Millicent McCartney just slaps him silly for saying that. How would you like it if someone basically says, "I'm sorry I helped your parents meet and make you"?

I seem to remember that conversation that was taped, Paul did accuse Heather of taping their argument over the phone and Heather had played it for some of the news people with the condition that is was to be off limits for them to publish at that time(I think she intended to use it as leverage against him/Paul if she needed too), it was brought up at the divorce hearing wasn't it?

I ignored the divorce scandal when it was all over the news. (THough I did chuckle at the breatfeeding comment because my dad was the same way according to my mom). One day i decided to read a bunch of articles about it and there was a video by The Young Turks (who hate Heather) that is now pulled that said Heather actually sent a tape of Paul's sessions with his psychiartrist to the media who did not print a story. The one women in the video who heard the tapes said they were too private.
Heather defended the move saying she was afraid Paul was going to have her 'done in' and that he knew those sessions were being taped.

That's what I remember.

I think the taped phone calls that were an issue during the divorce were something different than the phone hacking business. At the time it was Paul who accused Heather of having arranged it because it was a particular call between Paul and Stella where Heather was discussed and she raised it with him when this happened. During the divorce, Paul's outrage at having been hacked together with Heather's allegations of his violence etc was brought up as conduct which the court should consider so that her reward should be reduced. I seem to recall that the judge decided not to consider any of the conduct evidence and whether Heather was responsible for the phone hacking or how true the other allegations were it or not because he also decided not to consider any of her claims of abuse and that that conduct should be considered.
