Macca’s photographed with his arm around Nancy Shevell

Tabloid newspapers are linking Sir Paul McCartney to a married woman.

Macca, 65, is said to have spent the weekend in the exclusive US Hamptons beach resort near New York, catching up with family pal Nancy Shevell.

Paul enjoyed dinner with the attractive 47-year-old, who is married to lawyer Bruce Blakeman.

‘With Nancy, Paul appeared happier and more relaxed than he has for a long time,’ says an onlooker. ‘They were chatting like old friends and seemed totally wrapped up in their conversation.’

The couple also enjoyed a stroll on the beach, before Paul took Nancy home in his car.

‘They walked together but with their hands in their pockets,’ a passerby tells the Sun.

‘Later Paul dropped Nancy off. As they were saying goodbye, he leaned over and gave her a kiss before she got out.’

Sir Paul’s publicist declined to comment.
