Of all the celebrities you might expect to be hassled by the virulent British press, Paul McCartney seems like a pretty boring target. The most controversial thing about Macca at this point is his refusal to play the awesome McCartney II deep cut “Temporary Secretary” in concert. And yet it appears that McCartney might be the latest victim of phone-hacking at the hands of a British tabloid. Which tabloid, he won’t say at the moment, but his ex-wife Heather Mills claims that the Daily Mirror was listening to her phone messages. McCartney said he plans to contact British authorities about the hacking soon. [Via Rolling Stone]
