Merely one day after his ex-wife Heather Mills indicated British journalists illegally accessed her voicemail, Paul McCartney is speaking up, too. The former Beatles star admitted he was also hacked in the recent scandal that rocked England.
According to E! News, as he promoted an upcoming 9/11 benefit concert on showtime, Paul told reporters the now defunct News of the World hacked into his computer. “When I go back [to Britain] after this tour, I am going to talk to the police because apparently I have been hacked.”
While he won’t reveal much more than the fact that he’s been hacked and will listen to facts before making additional comments, he is going to speak to officials.
He added, “I don’t know much about it because they won’t tell anyone except the person themselves. So I will be talking to them about that. I do think it’s horrendous violation of privacy. I do think it has been going on for a long time, and I do think more people than we know knew about it.”
