Default German woman claims 'her father' Macca faked paternity test

German woman claims 'her father' Macca faked paternity test

Friday, May 18, 2007

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/liv...=1773&ito=1490


Paul McCartney arrived at London's Charlotte Street hotel on May 17.


Bettina Hubers in 1982.

A German prosecutor says Sir Paul McCartney is being investigated for allegedly faking a paternity test he took more than two decades ago to prove he was not the father of an illegitimate German girl.

Bettina Hubers, 46, has always claimed the former Beatle is her father, following an affair with her mother Erika, now 64, in the days when the band played in the Starlight club in Hamburg.


Erica, a nightclub waitress who claimed she had a threeyear affair with him, gave birth to Bettina in December 1962.


She filed a lawsuit seeking alimony, claiming he had asked her to have an abortion. Sir Paul denied parenthood but paid Erica the equivalent of £10,000 at today’s rates.


He later said: "It was 1966 and we were due to do a European tour. I was told that if the maintenance question wasn’t settled we couldn’t go to Germany."


Lawsuits followed after Ms Hubers turned 18 and in 1983 the Hubers went to court in Berlin asking for maintenance of about £375 per month and a declaration from Sir Paul that he was the father.


He took a blood test which indicated he was not, but the court rejected the evidence and ordered him to pay full maintenance.



Bettina Hubers then posed naked for High Society magazine for £600, saying she had to do it because of delays in maintenance payments.



However, by the time she was 22 and settled in Berlin as a hairdresser, she lost her court cases on appeal and was liable for legal costs of £60,000.


Sir Paul’s lawyer Dr Klaus Wachs advised him to pay the money.


Ms Hubers now claims Sir Paul sent a double along to take the 1983 paternity test.



She said: "The signature on the documents he signed at the time were false. We found that the signature is from a righthanded person and he is not.



"I want a new paternity test. It is my right. It has taken so long because we have been fighting to find out the truth."



Michael Grunwald, a spokesman for the public prosecutor’s office in Berlin, confirmed case Az.: 61 Js 1160/2007 concerned Sir Paul and the fatherhood issue adding: "Yes, there is a complaint of fraud against him that we are investigating."



If the prosecutor finds there is a case to answer Sir Paul could be arrested the next time he sets foot in Germany.

Was this the lady whose true father turned out to be a German sailor? She has not got over it yet.

But who knows, maybe she is Paul's daughter? But I don't think so.

I remember the "case" when it was fresh, and I wish she'd just shut up about it.

I know kids don't always have the features of both their parents but there isn't even one tiny thing about her face like his.

Why didn't we think about?!!

I don't think that's true. Can you imagine how many people has declared the same since the Beatles became famous?? I think that the only thing she's looking for is $$$$

What else?
Since the famous name (correct me, but didn't she call herself McCartney at one point?) didn't help her singing "career"...

If she had a husband and a job, I´d feel tempted to believe her, but starting a singing career by stealing the name McCartney (her parents weren´t married, if it was Paul or not) and making nude pics (the same old story, it´s getting boooring! ) to attract attention...seems just like a cheap lie to me, sorry.
If it was serious, she would have kept the press out of it. There are a billion women out there who had something going with one of the Beatles between 1960 and 1966, and even the chaos theory should teach us that there must be some "accidents"...or does the birth control pill work that good? But she´s the only one making a big fuss about it.

She needs to get a life!! Her own not someone elses!!

Even if Paul is her father, big deal as has been said already, there are probably many more who have the Beatles genes out there not making this fuss for a few moments of media attention.
