He’s just come through a notoriously messy divorce. So who can blame Paul McCartney for taking things slow with new girlfriend, Nancy Shevell?
But the new Beatle is – finally! – breaking his silence about their budding relationship.
“I just like being in love,” he told the U.K.’s Sunday Times. (Alas, that’s all he’d say on the subject.)
For her part, Shevell – an American businesswoman who’s amicably separated from her husband – insists she isn’t stressed by his mega-fame.
“I’m a cancer survivor, I run a trucking company and I’ve got a 16-year-old to raise,” she told the paper. “That’s stress.”
McCartney and Shevell were first spotted together a year ago. Since his divorce from Heather Mills was finalized, they have been spotted together more frequently. Recently, she accompanied him on his high-profile trip to Israel.
