Hanging out with Sting

Carrying their own bags

Sitting in the car with John Hamel

and just being in love….

First Public Outing

By August 2008, Paul and Nancy were ready to become a public item. They took a very public , leisurely stroll around Paul’s St John’s Wood neighborhood, and allowed the paps to get these  lovely photos.

Photos- Before they went public

Paul and Nancy started quietly seeing each other in 2007, just around the time she separated from her husband Bruce.

When in public, they stayed apart so the paps couldn’t get photos of them together.

But the jug was up when they were caught kissing after having lunch at a little restaurant in the Hamptons.

Homes in the Hamptons

Paul’s home in the Hamptons

The McCartneys and the Blakemans knew each other as neighbors as they summered in the Hamptons.

Nancy was friendly with Linda, and Linda’s kids referred to Nancy as Jackie O because she always looked so glamorous to them.

Apparently, when Paul was dating Heather, he introduced her to Nancy. Heather was rude to Nancy, and Nancy advised Paul against marrying her- which caused a rift in the friendship between Paul and Nancy.

However, they ran into each other again at a party as Paul was going through his divorce with Heather, and started to quietly spend time with each other.
