    Default The Heather Mills Porky Detector Test

    [for any non-Brits not aware a "porky" is a lie - ie, from rhyming slang, "porky pie(s)"]

    As Macca's ex is pictured in a mink coat despite her anti-fur stance, we put her other claims on trial

    By NATALIE CLARKE - More by this author »Last updated at 15:50pm on 13th March 2007

    A balmy September afternoon, and a young woman called Heather Mills, draped head to toe in a mink coat, strolls arm-in-arm with a dark-haired man.

    Surely this cannot be the same Heather Mills who is a vehement antifur campaigner? The same Heather Mills who rages about an industry that "murders animal"?

    Does the Lady Macca protest too much? She says she's anti-fur but once wore a mink coat

    • Heather Mills practices her moves for reality show debut

    That was the conclusion when a video of her apparently wearing a mink coat emerged this week.

    Some say she has a somewhat "elastic" relationship with the truth, while others say that Heather, locked in a divorce battle with Sir Paul McCartney for a share of his £825million fortune, lives in a Walter Mitty world of half-truths and "porky pies".

    "Heather is a fantasist. I wouldn't believe her if she told me the sun set in the West," said one associate.

    Here, Natalie Clarke puts her claims to the test with our own Heather Mills Porky Detector.


    Heather claims
    As a vociferous and active member of PETA, Heather has stood on the streets of New York berating celebrities for wearing fur, and even threatened to stalk the fur- clad Jennifer Lopez.

    Recently, she called Naomi Campbell "shallow and hypocritical" for wearing clothes adorned with fur.

    The truth

    This week a tabloid newspaper printed stills from a video from 1989 which apparently shows Heather wearing a mink coat.

    She is on the arm of her former husband, Alfie Karmal, on her way to a friend's wedding in North London.

    Old friends of 39-year-old Heather, the estranged wife of Sir Paul McCartney, say she adored the coat, which used to belong to her mother.

    Her former sister-in-law, Dianna Karmal, says: "She really loved that coat. When I see her anti-fur campaigns now, I always chuckle."

    She continues: "It's laughable that she's called so many celebrities hypocrites. She's styled herself as an anti-fur campaigner, but was proud to be in her mum's mink."

    Heather says on her website: "I am not ashamed I wore the coat. The coat belonged to my mother who sadly died a few days earlier and I wore it because it made me feel close to her."


    Heather claims

    In one of life's more bizarre coincidences, Heather, who lost her leg in a road accident in 1993, claims her mother Beatrice also lost a leg in a car crash.

    In an inspiring, never-to-be-repeated modern medical miracle, however, the "almost severed" leg was reattached to her body.

    "When she reached the hospital it (the leg) was only hanging on by a tiny flap of skin and flesh," Heather recalls in her autobiography, A Single Step. "Miraculously the surgeons managed to insert a metal plate and reattach it."

    The truth

    The severed leg story is "ludicrous", according to Heather's stepfather Charles Stapley.

    "I was astounded when I read that," the 81-year-old former Crossroads actor told the Mail. "My wife did have her leg badly crushed in a car accident but surgeons saved it and she continued to lead an active life. She was even a keen tennis player."


    Heather claims

    Six years ago, not long after she began dating Sir Paul, Heather spoke movingly of how she was being subjected to a "vile" smear campaign branding her a hooker. "Paul never doubted me for a moment."

    Naive Heather told of her horror when, at a lavish birthday at the luxurious Marbella villa of multimillionaire Adnan Khashoggi, it dawned on her why she and a group of other models had been invited.

    A woman who had organised the party shouted at Heather for slapping the actor George Hamilton, who had, she said, made a pass at her. "This woman was shouting: 'Who do you think you are, upsetting Adnan's friends? What do you think you're here for?'

    "She was some sort of madam who found these girls and provided them to him. I met Adnan Khashoggi and he is a lovely, polite man. But I haven't had sex with him. I have never sold sex, and I am not an escort girl."

    The truth

    A number of people came forward last summer to tell a Sunday tabloid how, in her 20s, Heather was a high-class hooker who had sex with rich Arabs and businessmen at lavish parties.
    Among them was Abdul Khoury, Adnan Khashoggi's private secretary from 1977 until last year.

    He has a different recollection of the Marbella party. "One of my duties was to look after Mr Khashoggi's guests, which included vice girls. One was Heather Mills, who I know had sex with him for money.

    "The day after the party, I took Heather and a lady named Joanna to see Mr Khashoggi. He asked me to count out two amounts of £2,000, to put the money into envelopes and to give them to each of the girls."


    Heather claims

    Heather is a strict vegetarian. She was set to front a campaign against milk by the Vegetarian And Vegan Foundation last year, but pulled out in the wake of her marriage break-ups saying that she was "worn down".

    The truth

    Chris Terrill, the ex she ditched for McCartney, fondly remembers her cooking him her speciality dish...Lancashire hotpot.
    Surely a strict vegetarian would never be prepared to cook meat, even for others. Her former sister-in-law Dianna Karmal, however, says Heather has been a vegetarian only since meeting Paul.


    Heather claims

    Heather recounts running away from home shortly before her 14th birthday, spending months sleeping in a cardboard box under railway arches near Waterloo Bridge, surrounded by drug addicts and prostitutes.

    "As lodgings, the arches weren't exactly inviting," she writes in her autobiography. "They were dark and damp and the ground was littered with broken glass. My neighbours came from all sorts of backgrounds. Some had had nervous breakdowns," she writes.

    The truth

    Charles Stapley, Heather's step-father, is bemused by this. Heather and her sister, Fiona, moved to Clapham, South London, to live with him and their mother in 1983, when Heather was 15.
    "She always had a room at my house with her sister," says Mr Stapley, "and I don't ever recall hearing that she'd slept rough at Waterloo Station. Heather is somewhat confused about a number of things from her youth." Records reportedly show she was enrolled at school at the time.


    Heather claims

    Heather says she also ran away to join a fair during her teenage years. "My new home was a tiny caravan at Freddie Gray's fair on Clapham Common.

    "I managed to talk Dorothy, the lady who ran the candy-floss stall, into finding me a job making tea and cleaning the carousel horses and spinning the waltzers."

    The truth

    According to her stepfather, Heather would disappear at weekends in the back of a lorry with a youth who worked for a travelling funfair in London.

    Heather claims

    When she met Macca, Heather's then fiance was a freelance filmmaker called Chris Terrill.

    After she dumped him, six days before their wedding - the marquee in place, wedding presents from John Lewis were piling up - she told friends she had discovered Mr Terrill was a gay MI6 agent intent on wrecking her campaign against landmines.

    The truth

    "Once, I had confided to her that, in a previous incarnation, I had a brief brush with the intelligence services when I was contemplating a career with the Foreign Office," Mr Terrill said.

    "What a mistake that was. I heard she had inflated this into the idea that I was an MI6 agent, whose mission was to infiltrate her world and sabotage her anti-landmine work in order to protect the British arms industry.

    "So, she had me down as James Bond. In fact, a gay James Bond."

    While Mr Terrill fell under her spell, he was also aware of her tendency towards exaggeration. "I soon realised that Heather had a somewhat elastic relationship with the truth, which she was able to stretch impressively sometimes."


    Heather claims

    As well as all her modelling and charity campaigning, she has also found time to be an investigative journalist.

    The truth

    Heather stole the identity of another Heather Mills, who really is an investigative journalist, for more than a year, claiming that a series of newspaper articles by the writer were her own.

    She told "fellow" writers she contributed regularly to The Observer on subjects ranging from poverty to prisons and health.

    When a suspicious journalist asked Heather how she had managed to write a piece about prison reform while she was abroad on holiday, she had an immediate answer: she'd taken her laptop with her.

    She was finally rumbled when another doubting journalist called The Observer and asked how many legs the writer Heather Mills had.

    "She posed as me, not only to her friends, but in a series of meetings with TV executives," said the real journalist Ms Mills.

    "She even showed people cuttings of stories I had written."
