Paul McCartney's Amorous Scandalous Adventures, 1964-66
While it is no shock to find out the The Beatles had numerous sexual affairs with their groupies, what was shocking that two of them are true and remain only in Paul's mind.
Take Erika Hubers, a German waitress that Paul met and had sex with during their Hamburg days. Erika threatened to file a civil action against the young McCartney because she did become pregnant and Paul insisted on her getting an abortion. She refused and the baby girl, Bettina Hubers, was born the day Paul left Hamburg. Legal action was pursued by Erika's father and papers were filed. The legal papers arrived at David Jacobs, attorney, who advised Paul to remain silent and never answered the complaint. A few years went by, now Paul was a member of the world's most famous band. Erika's father against threatened to file legal papers in London, where British courts would make the whole event public. Paul, obviously was worried more now and paid $27,000 to keep Bettina's existence a secret. Things did remain quiet until 1981, when Bettina, now an adult, sued Paul for $6,000,000. Paul paid the amount. There is little question that Paul is the father.
In 1964, the same situation occurred, this time Alice Doyle claimed her newborn son. Both the girl and her parents met with Paul's then attorney. Her uncle threatened to go to the press about this, who was blackmailing McCartney. Legal agreements were drawn up to give up to 5000 pounds to make the matter go away. It would continue to bother McCartney for several more years.
According Cynthia Lennon, John's first wife, Paul was Liverpool's town bull or gigolo, as many paternity claims were filed claiming he was the father. Paul does admit that "birds" were easy to get and lay, and he was a very good looking guy. It seems like the real Mccoy was Bettina Hubers, there would be no reason to pay six million if it were not true to McCartney's heart.
