Beatles star Sir Paul McCartney believes he was also a victim of phone-hacking and intends to approach the police after returning to Britain after completing his ongoing tour of the United States.

Speaking to the media in the U.S., he said phone hacking was “a horrendous violation of privacy“.

His ex-wife Heather Mills had alleged that her phone was hacked to access Mr. McCartney’s messages while she was in India at the behest of the Trinity Mirror newspaper group.

Mr. McCartney told journalists in Ohio: “When I go back [to Britain] after this tour, I am going to talk to the police because apparently I have been hacked. I don’t know much about it because they won’t tell anyone except the person themselves. So I will be talking to them about that“.

He said: “I do think it’s horrendous violation of privacy. I do think it has been going on for a long time and I do think more people than we know knew about it. But I think I should just listen and hear what the facts are before I comment.”

The phone-hacking row has widened beyond Rupert Murdoch’s titles with Heather Mills’s revelation on a BBC programme on Wednesday night.

At the time her phone was hacked in 2001, Mr. McCartney was Ms. Mills’ boy-friend and the two married in 2002. They divorced in 2008.
