Mills branded liar
13:30 31 October 2006
British TV star Jonathan Ross has attacked Heather Mills - branding her a "f***ing liar".
The chat show host launched his tirade against the former model - estranged wife of ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney - while presenting the Q Awards at London's Grosvenor House hotel on Monday (30.10.06).
During his opening lines at the prestigious music awards ceremony, he said: "Heather Mills McCartney - what a f***ing liar. I wouldn't be surprised if we found out she's actually got two legs."
Heather, 38, had a leg amputated below the knee in 1993 after she was hit by a police motorbike while crossing the road.
Ross' vicious quip was met with a cacophony of cheers and laughter from the star-studded audience which included U2, Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher, Boy George, Arctic Monkeys, Paul Weller and soul legend Smokey Robinson.
Ross was referring to allegations made by Heather, earlier this month, that Paul had been "physically violent" towards her during their marriage.
Among the most serious allegations - made in court papers lodged by her lawyer - were accusations that Paul pushed her into a bath while she was pregnant and on another occasion poured wine over her head before allegedly stabbing her in the arm with a broken glass.
