(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Paul McCartney has fired Geoff Baker, his publicist for 15 years, due to "professional standards."
"I find it very sad that after years of
friendship, my publicist Geoff Baker and I are parting," McCartney said in a statement "Over the past few months, his behaviour 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 attempt 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."
According to sky.com McCartney has hired The Outside Organisation, publicists for David Bowie, The Who and Westlife. –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
