Paul McCartney's Younger Third Wife Nancy Shevell — inside Their Romantic Love Story
On October 9, 2011, The Beatles Paul McCartney married his third wife Nancy Shevell. At the time, the singer was 69 and Shevell was younger than him; aged 51.
McCartney, 78, and Shevell, 60, got married at London's Old Marylebone Town Hall with family and friends in attendance. It wasn’t expected that the former Beatle would marry again after he had a bitter divorce from his second wife.
McCartney had to pay out an alleged $35 million to Heather Mills in their divorce. What Shevell has in common with the musician’s first wife, Linda Eastman, is that she’s also an American.
WHAT DOES SHEVELL DO
Her father is Mike Shevell the owner of a transportation conglomerate which is estimated to be worth nearly half of a billion dollars. In 2011, the businesswoman served as the company's vice president.
She was also a board member of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Shevell, like Eastman, has also battled breast cancer.
HOOKED UP BY BARBARA WALTERS
McCartney first met his current wife in the Hamptons on Long Island. Rumors state that Shevell’s second cousin, Barbara Walters, thought McCartney and Shevell had a spark so she threw parties and made sure they both attended.
At the time, she was married to a Nassau County lawyer and politician, Bruce Blakeman. The couple had a son together, Arlen.
