"I'LL KILL THE BITCH"
By Rav Singh and James Desborough
PAUL McCartney's daughter Stella threatened to KILL her hated stepmother in a blazing bust-up with her dad, we can reveal.
The fashion designer flew into a terrifying rage after hearing that Heather claimed Macca hit her mother Linda.
Pregnant Stella, 34, had to be restrained by the former Beatle as she screamed: "I'm going to kill that bitch! I can't believe what she's doing! I'm going to kill her!'"
It was clear she didn't mean it literally but she was beside herself after reading what Heather had said about Linda.
"I told you she was a bitch," she screamed. "Why did you marry her? She's been a manipulative cow from day one. The cow won't be happy until she destroys all of us — and our memories of our mother'."
Last week we revealed how Heather was the violent one in the collapsed marriage, smashing up rooms, hurling missiles and making threats against her husband.
Now we can reveal the full extent of Stella's bitter hatred of the woman who replaced her beloved mother. Our source revealed how:
# THE two women thrashed out an astonishing HATE PACT after the marriage so they would never have to talk to each other.
# STELLA is so disgusted by the blonde ex-model she compared her to a pile of VOMIT, calling her morning sickness "Heathering".
# ONLY weeks away from giving birth, Stella is under so much strain she has HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, putting her pregnancy in jeopardy, and Sir Paul, 64, is drinking heavily.
# HIS marriage was in tatters TEN MONTHS ago — and when a desperate Sir Paul suggested marriage counselling, 38-year-old Heather REFUSED.
Stella's explosive rant happened during a meeting with her dad to discuss the divorce. "Paul kept pleading with her to calm down—but she couldn't," said a source close to the family.
"She wanted to go straight to see Heather, but he said, ‘You can't go anywhere in that state'. He had to stand in front of the door and stop her. He was pleading with her. It was a heartbreaking scene."
And it was the culmination of a resentment that had been bubbling since the day Macca announced he was going to marry the ex-model.
Our source told how a few weeks after the 2002 wedding, the rock legend got Stella and Heather together on a secret night out in London.
"He was adamant they should be one big happy family — he didn't realise how wrong he could be.
"From what Stella said to friends she told her stepmum she was a money-grabbing bitch and Heather hissed at her to mind her own business.
"The upshot of a very frosty evening was, ‘You keep out of my way, I'll keep out of yours'. It broke Paul's heart."
Stella's hatred only deepened as she watched the marriage crumble.
When she had morning sickness she gave it a nickname. "She called it Heathering. That's how bad it is," said our source.
"Heather is just vomit as far as she's concerned. But what she's doing to Stella's dad is really getting to her. Her blood pressure is very high, not something you need in the latter stages of a pregnancy."
Our source told how the marriage was in trouble from the start of this year.
"They were arguing over anything and Heather was taking it out on her staff. Once she reduced their gardener to tears because she didn't like the way he'd cut the flowers.
"Paul would spend more and more time at Stella's and would be constantly on the phone to her when he was at home.
"He would say, ‘I just don't know what to do any more. I love her but she's become this horrible woman.'
"Stella would get so upset listening to her dad she once said, ‘I don't want to bring my child into this world with her as a grandmother. She's a bitch from hell'."
In May, Macca suggested marriage counselling in a last-ditch attempt to save their marriage, said our source. But she flatly refused. "She told him he was the problem and if he sorted himself out it would all be fine," said our source. "This was the last straw for Paul who started drinking heavily. Stella grew more and more concerned.
"It was at this point Stella noticed Heather would carry a black Prada bag with her and Paul said she'd always leave it in the middle of the table. They now believe it had a tape recorder in it." Stella never saw them fighting — but did once walk in after they had a bust-up over Heather's spending.
A source close to Stella said: "She told me Paul was close to tears.
"Heather had been spending far too much on clothes and they had a huge row with Paul telling her to cut down.
"She would buy bags of outfits and wear dresses only once. It was like she had won the lottery. Paul really loved her and would do anything for her but it was just take, take, take."
The one good thing from the marriage collapse is that it has drawn the McCartneys together again as a family. Macca has seen much more of Linda's daughter Heather, 43, who stayed away from his Peasmarsh home throughout his new marriage.
"It was a huge surprise for loads of staff when Heather turned up at the house to see her stepdad," said our source.
"She'd not visited for four years. The same applies to Mary and James, his other kids.
"Paul would have to go to see them rather than them coming home. In the last few months that's changed. They're united against Heather."
