Sir Paul McCartney and Heather Mills‘ divorce is really turning ugly. While ordinary couples have to decide how to split the house, the car, and all the other stuff between, it looks like these two have already divided the support they get from PETA. But it wasn’t their decision. PETA reportedly let Heather go because they didn’t want to offend Sir Paul. Page Six says that “Some speculate that PETA, which used to tag along with Mills when she bashed fur-wearers such as Jennifer Lopez, has severed relations with her because it’s siding with McCartney in their bitter divorce.”
I don’t want to think that PETA would actually get involved in this issue and take sides in a divorce battle. If the reports are true, perhaps it might have more to do with Heather’s former fondness for fur? Photos of her wearing a mink coat to a 1989 wedding surfaced recently, which made her a target for criticism. She defended herself and said she wasn’t aware of the issues surrounding fur back then, but I don’t think many anti-fur groups will gladly accept that explanation.
