Heather Mills has revealed she has taken up karate to defend husband Paul McCartney from crazed fans.
The former model, who married the ex-Beatle three years ago, says she has become so worried he will be attacked, like his former bandmates, she is determined to become a martial arts expert.
Mills claims she was spurred on to take action because John Lennon was murdered by a fan in 1982 and George Harrison was stabbed by a man in his own home.
She said in an interview with Britain's Hello magazine: "I'm becoming proficient at martial arts now so if I need to, I'll use it, especially after what happened to poor John and George.''
The beautiful blonde also says she is deeply concerned for the safety of her daughter she had with McCartney last year, Beatrice Millie.
She added: "I'd love to talk about my baby but she deserves her privacy so I protect her like a wild woman from the jungle."
