Paul McCartney is keeping the tabloids guessing as reports are running strong again that he and fiancee Nancy Shevell are to be married sometime this weekend. None seem to be really sure when, though. However, Barbara Walters, Shevell’s cousin, might know.
Two major British tabloids are reporting it’ll happen on different days. The UK Mirror says it’ll be Saturday, while the rival Daily Mail says it’ll be on Sunday, which also would have been John Lennon’s 71 birthday.
But if there’s someone who might know, it’s Barbara Walters, who’s Nancy Shevell’s second cousin. She tweeted this from her @barbarajwalters account Friday morning, giving an indication that something might be about to happen: “Going away for a big weekend. Will tell you more when I get back.”
That wasn’t her only tweet about Paul McCartney recently, by the way. She tweeted about seeing the debut of his ballet “Ocean’s Kingdom” on Sept. 28: “Went to see a new ballet last night with original score by @paulmccartney. I loved the music, and love that he’s marrying my cousin.” Of course, she didn’t say when it would happen.
Another clue that something is about to take place is a report by People magazine that a tent is being erected at his home. The mag says a van from a party decoration company has also been there.
The party could be about to start soon, from the way things look.
