McCartney's wife suesover divorce stories
LONDON -- Heather Mills McCartney's lawyers said Tuesday she is suing two newspapers over "false, damaging and immensely upsetting" stories surrounding her divorce from Paul McCartney.
The law firm Mishcon de Reya named the Daily Mail and London's Evening Standard as the subject of legal proceedings, adding that a suit will also be filed against The Sun.
Associated Newspapers, publishers of the Daily Mail and the Evening Standard, had no immediate response.
Mills McCartney had been vilified in the press and was now being stalked by photographers, the firm said. It alleged that other newspapers had also printed false statements but the three listed would be the focus of the lawsuit.
The McCartney divorce has become the most sensational marital breakup since Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales, parted ways a decade ago, sparking immense rivalry in the British press for the best scoop. Last week, the Daily Mail splashed its front page with what appeared to be legal papers drafted by Mills McCartney's lawyers against the former Beatle that alleged drug use, drunkenness, callousness about his wife's amputated leg, indifference to her pain and even an assault with a broken wine glass.
Rapper sentencedin assault case
NEW YORK -- Foxy Brown was sentenced Tuesday to three years' probation for a fight with two nail salon employees, finally ending an assault case that dragged on for more than two years.
Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, tried to withdraw her guilty plea but a judge said the agreement was legitimate and imposed the sentence.
"I'm innocent," Brown argued before Judge Melissa C. Jackson, claiming she felt rushed at the time she made the plea agreement. She also said her previous lawyer had told her she would face jail time unless she agreed to the deal.
Jackson, after listening to last-ditch pleas from the 27-year-old rapper and her attorney, rejected the appeal for a two-week extension and new arguments, instead handing down the sentence worked out in earlier negotiations.
Brown pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault charges in August for kicking one employee and smacking a second worker in the face Aug. 29, 2004, in an argument over payment for a manicure at Bloomie Nails.
