Sir Paul McCartney may be in love with girlfriend Nancy Shevell, but he's not rushing down the aisle anytime soon!

According to E!, A rep for the former Beatle is shooting down a pair of British newspaper stories that claimed McCartney is getting hitched to Shevell now that her divorce is final.

"There's no truth to it," says publicist Paul Freundlich. Both the Sunday Mirror and Sunday Telegraph reported that McCartney received the all-clear from his four children to marry the New York native, including fashion designer Stella McCartney, who was famously not a fan of his second wife, Heather Mills.

The papers claimed Shevell had been granted a divorce from Bruce Blakeman on Dec. 29, ending a 23-year union. However neither paper was able to produce any public legal documents to prove it.

Shevell, 49, is a board member of the Big Apple's Metropolitan Transportation Authority. She split with her 52-year old estranged husband amicably in 2007 and the pair have a 17-year old son.

According to the British tabloids, Shevell and McCartney had known each other for almost 30 years before they were snapped kissing outside a Long Island sushi restaurant in Nov., 2007. Both own houses in the Hamptons.
