Paul McCartney On Caribbean Vacation With Nancy Shevell, Reports Say

Multiple reports place Paul McCartney in the Caribbean with New Yorker Nancy Shevell. The pair was first photographed kissing during a November 2007 weekend together in East Hampton, where they both have homes. Nancy and her ex Bruce were friends with Paul and late wife Linda. Earlier this month McCartney finally settled his divorce from Heather Mills.
The Mirror reports:

Sir Paul, 65, secretly jetted out to the private Caribbean island resort of Jumby Bay to be with American Nancy, 47.

A source said: "They hired bikes and rode all around the island. They were laughing and looked like they were having a great time. But it is very early days..."

Yesterday another friend said Sir Paul had taken his current holiday with Nancy because he needed peace and quiet in the wake of the acrimonious divorce settlement. The friend added: "He is very close to Nancy, they have known each other a long time.

"Sir Paul's general feeling is that he was vindicated after the court case. A lot of what was said about him was discounted by the judge. Now all he wants is peace and quiet."

The Sun echoes:

"It's great. They are really happy together and are very close.

"It's a blossoming friendship and Nancy really cheers him up.

"Paul deserves some happiness after everything he's been through."

The ex-Beatle and businesswoman Nancy, a breast cancer survivor, have been spotted laughing, joking and riding bikes.

His rep had no comment for any of the papers.
