Sir Paul McCartney's holiday in St Barts 'takes shock turn as he witnesses road traffic accident'


Sir Paul McCartney’s holiday in St Barts took a shocking turn on Sunday when he witnessed a road accident between a car and a quad bike.

The former Beatle, 79, has been relaxing in the Caribbean hotspot with his wife Nancy Shevell, 62, this month and he was pictured this weekend as he checked on the people involved after the incident.

Musician Sir Paul was seen in a white T-shirt and black shorts as he stood next to a quad bike and a white Kia car.

The star wore a black baseball cap and sunglasses as he helped a man on the bike.

Sir Paul’s step-son, Nancy’s son Arlen Blakeman, 29, from her relationship with US politician Bruce Blakeman, was seen helping guide the man on the quad bike away from the car.

Arlen wore a white vest shirt and black shorts and had a blue and white baseball cap backwards on his head.

MailOnline has contacted a representative for Sir Paul for comment.

The legendary star has been enjoying his holiday in the Caribbean with Nancy and Arlen this month. 

Sir Paul and Nancy have been together since 2007 and married in a ceremony held in Marylebone four years later in 2011.

It’s thought Sir Paul and Nancy first met thanks to both owning homes in the Hamptons. 

Sir Paul was previously married twice before – he wed first wife Linda in 1969 and the pair were married until Linda died, aged 56, in 1998, following a battle with breast cancer.

Paul and Linda share four children; daughters Heather, Mary and Stella, and son James.

He later wed second wife Heather Mills, who he shares daughter Beatrice with, in 2002 – they split four years later in 2006 and their divorce, costing the star £24.3 million, was finalised in 2008.  

Sir Paul and Nancy’s holiday comes after it emerged Sir Paul is being considered for a peerage to mark his 80th birthday this summer. 

The Beatles legend could be made a Lord in recognition of his lifetime of musical achievements and service to British culture.

The Sun reports that sources are saying the prestigious honour is in the pipeline, 25 years after he was first knighted by The Queen.

If he is awarded with the title, he will join a very select group of musicians, including theatre mogul Andrew Lloyd Webber, 73, composer the late Benjamin Britten and late violin virtuoso Yehudi Menuhin. 

A source told the publication: ‘Paul is already in an extraordinarily exclusive set of people at the very top of the honours system.

‘There is now quiet talk among officials about how to mark his 80th with something truly special. The idea of offering him the chance to sit as a cross-bencher in the Lords has been mooted.

‘He has given incredible service to British culture, so it could be a very fitting tribute and mark of all that he has done for his country.’

MailOnline contacted reps for Sir Paul for comment. 

His knighthood was upgraded in 2018 to admit Sir Paul to the even rarer Order of the Companions of Honour – of which there are only 61 living members.
