Pamela Des Barres Says Paul McCartney Never Cheated On His Wife Linda
Famous groupie Pamela Des Barres spoke to Louder Sound and revealed an unforgettable memory with The Beatles icon Paul McCartney whom she was a massive fan of for years. Barres stated that McCartney was loyal to his late wife Linda McCartney by sharing details about the night they met.
Des Barres was a person who was passionate about music and rock stars which made her one of the most well-known groupies in rock music history, along with her unmatchable beauty. She had romantic relationships with several artists such as Mick Jagger, Jimmy Page, Keith Moon, and many more, even though most didn’t last long for various reasons.
Later, the groupie decided to share the highlights of her crazy and adventurous life, including many musicians, in her autobiography entitled ‘I’m with the Band: Confessions of a Groupie,’ which was released in 1987 and became a New York Times best-seller. Des Barres mentioned many times that she was a great Beatles and McCartney fan and even fantasized about being his girlfriend. Then, in her interview, she said she had a chance to meet McCartney and talk about her book.
Former groupie Des Barres unveiled that Paul McCarney had never heard of her before compared to other rock stars that knew and wanted to be with her. According to her, McCartney never cheated on the photographer and musician Linda, whom he married in March 1969. He remained together until Linda died of breast cancer at age 56 in 1998.
In Barres’ words, she said:
“I had my book, ‘I’m With The Band.’ This guy introduced me to Paul and put his gaze on me, and I was like, ‘Oh my god, I’m standing here with Paul McCartney!’ I said, ‘I’ve always wanted to meet you. I was a big Beatles fan. I wrote this book, ‘I’m With The Band.’ He hadn’t heard of me, and most rock stars have. I think he was pretty reclusive with Linda. He’d never cheated on her; I know that.
He was perusing it, and then he looked over the book with those eyes and said, ‘We haven’t met before, have we?’ It was so great. It was for Heather’s benefit. I said, ‘No, unfortunately,’ and he turned to her and said, ‘See dear, we haven’t met. I don’t know her.’ So funny. He got entangled with women who didn’t let him out of their sight.“
In addition, Des Barres added that while they were sharing a conversation about her memoir, McCartney was with his then-wife Heather Mills, who was probably jealous of it. The groupie said McCartney asked him whether they had met before and after she said no, he confronted Mills about that.
