Paul McCartney may have moved on from his relationship with ex-wife Heather Mills, but he's still dealing with the aftermath of the drama surrounding their 8-year relationship.
Mills revealed this week in an interview with the BBC reporters from the Mirror (CNN presenter Piers Morgan was the Daily Mirror Editor at the time) hacked her phone in 2002, and intercepted a message McCartney had left her.
- "I do think it is a horrendous violation of privacy, and I do think it's been going on a long time, and I do think more people than we know knew about it."
The confession prompted McCartney to reveal on Thursday he plans to contact the police over this "horrendous violation of privacy", telling reporters before a concert in Cincinnati on Thursday, "I will be talking to them about that."
The now-defunct News of the World newspaper closed down in June after 168 years, due to phone hacking allegations involving several British stars.

After hearing mills comments on the BBC, the Mirror fired back, stating: "I have no knowledge of any conversation any executive from other newspapers at Trinity Mirror may or may not have had with Heather Mills. To reiterate, I have never hacked a phone, told anyone to hack a phone, nor to my knowledge published any story obtained from the hacking of a phone."
