Such a sad way to go. She had so much to offer.

Four years ago I came here and made up a story about Paula and Eric Clapton, I can't believe that you fell for it. It just goes to show how silly this site is.

Rupert Everett is not a rumour, just Google Paula Yates / Rupert Everett and you'll find plenty of info. Or you could read his book :-)

The hole thing of her working in Australia is a atemp from Michaels side to his family holding an eye at her after her suicide atemp b4 Michaels dead! she mention it in a interwie about Hutchence dead and it is well docomented! She was`nt an evil person but to love Michael so much being prepair to do anything to keep him. Sadly she never recovered after his dead! She should have staye with Bob who loved her dearley and none of this had happened; the hole storey Paula michael and bob is too sad poor children being wictoms and ones who paying the price!

I notice you`ve found the worst pictures of Paula that you can. Please look on Photobucket, there are some beautiful ones.

Paula FanMay 21, 2010

No one here is interested in the truth; they just come to bad mouth Paula because they think they know her from her two years with Hutchence. They say suicide because they want to act clever.
