Today, Sir Paul issued a statement denying the claims that his wife, Heather, was behind his split with publicist, Geoff Baker:
"I find it very sad that after years of friendship, my publicist Geoff Baker and I are parting. Over the past few months, his behavior has not reached the professional standards I had come to expect from Geoff and it is with regret that I am forced to end our relationship. It is particularly sad that he has chosen to implicate my wife Heather in this business and I can say now that she has had absolutely nothing to do with this. In fact, she has always been a great supporter of his. This is purely between Geoff and myself and I am sad to see it end in this way."
When asked to reply to the statement, Mr. Baker refused saying:
"I'm not commenting on this. I'm writing a novel about fathers at the moment and I'm happy."
Mr. Baker's friends claim that he was "deeply upset and let down" by Sir Paul's statement, adding:
"He has been feeling the chill for some time. Geoff lived for the tours - and not being asked to go was the final straw."
In April, Sir Paul hired The Outside Organization to publicize his world tour.
