Michelle Elizabeth, who is also the former publicist of model, Heather Mills McCartney, is sick of her friend being depicted as a money-grabbing schemer, and has decided to speak out about the sacrifices she made while with the Beatles legend, Paul McCartney.
Elizabeth claims that Heather, who lost her leg in a motorcycle accident in 1993, risked her life to provide Paul with their daughter Beatrice that he desperately craved.
In an interview on US TV news show "Extra," Elizabeth said, "It was very hard for her to have the child. Heather has metal pieces in her pelvis and doctors said that she should not have a child but she went through it because she actually loved Paul."
Elizabeth claims Heather has begged her not to defend her because she is anxious that her divorce not be conducted in public, but says she felt the need to give her friend some much needed and deserved support.
Elizabeth added, "She's being attacked from everywhere. It's horrible. I need to speak [out], even though she was not really up for it."
It has been a tumultuous few days for Heather, who this week was revealed to have posed naked for a German sex book.
The explicit images of the former model, completely nude and smothered in baby oil, were published in a 1988 German book "Die Freuden Der Liebe," which translates as "The Joys Of Love." In one photo, the 38-year-old is seen performing a sex act on a naked man. Other pictures show her using whips, handcuffs and whipped cream on her male co-star.
