One of the most high-profile divorce cases in showbusiness history turned bitterly acrimonious last week when legal papers were leaked.

The document, apparently prepared by Heather’s lawyers, contained allegations that Paul mistreated his wife during their tempestuous four-year marriage.

As I get older I’m realising that the Fab Four were far, far more than the sum of its parts should’ve totaled. I don’t have much to say about George, or Ringo, who went on rather opposite paths towards mysticism and hucksterism, respectively. John, for all his peace-love-dope attempts to change the world, sounds like a first-class jerk – did you ever notice how many of his Beatles songs are about emotionally mistreating people? But Macca is by far the worst of this sad bunch. A shill of the first order, an artiste (that’s a pejorative, by the way) and an attention whore par excellence. This sordid mess of a divorce seems to have caught the Beatles-loving public off-guard with its nastiness, but Paul himself saw it coming, 40 years ago:

FOR NO ONE
Your day breaks, your mind aches
You find that all her words of kindness linger on
When she no longer needs you

She wakes up, she makes up
She takes her time and doesn’t feel she has to hurry
She no longer needs you

And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears
Cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years

You want her, you need her
And yet you don’t believe her when she says her love is dead
You think she needs you

And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears
Cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years

You stay home, she goes out
She says that long ago she knew someone but now he’s gone
She doesn’t need him

Your day breaks, your mind aches
There will be times when all the things she said will fill your head
You won’t forget her

And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears
Cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years
