The Sun has reported that Capcom asked Heather Mills, the one-legged ex-wife of Paul McCartney, to star in Bionic Commando. According to Heather Mill’s Twitter tweets though she was just asked to promote it not star in it. Here’s what it says:

“Got offered to promote an amputee bionic computer game, from a wealthy computer games company I said if you donate a large sum to charity.
The stingy company came back saying they couldn’t, what happened to charitable businesses, seems they just want to exploit and give nothing.
It may make sense to take the offer but I’d rather donate regularly to many charities much more than they’re offering and not be exploited.”

Can you imagine what the game would look like staring Heather Mills instead of a chap with a bionic prosthetic arm? Or how many copies it would then go onto sell? Had The Sun got their facts right it could have been the weirdest thing to happen in gaming for a long time.

    Heather Mills is lying (shocker!). If Capcom were going to pay her to promote the game, why would they have a problem giving her fee to charity instead? When you look at it like that, it makes far more sense that they refused to pay for the reasons stipulated by The Sun.

    Logic.

    Heather Mills is a proven liar. Read what the judge said about her in the divorce papers and watch her rants on TV. She has stolen one woman’s identy and claimed an ex fiance was an MI5 agent out to stop her “charity” work. I am siding with The Sun on this one. She makes crazy demands and then gets angry when they beome public. She is a loon, a well known loon and is constantly telling lies.

    I also believe the Sun article over the liar Heather Mills. She wouldn’t know the truth if it walk up to her and introduced itself. She never filed tax returns until she met McCartney because she worked in an ilegal business. She also collected funds for an unregistered charity – but has no papers to prove where the money went. She is a con woman.
