Sir Paul McCartney has won a legal battle with help of his lawyers in a bit to ban the sale of mementos by his former nanny’s family.

Paul’s late wife Linda reportedly gifted a number of collectable items, including a suit, a cape and handwritten lyrics to late Rose Martin, who was a nanny for their children. Now, Martin’s family decided to sell the collection through auction, but McCartney’s attorneys forced them to withdraw from the sale.

Paul Fairweather, Omega Auctions representative, told Daily Telegraph newspaper, “Unfortunately, the lawyers have claimed that Paul would never have given any clothing away.”

“Rose always told the family that it was Linda that had given them to her but as both have unfortunately passed away, neither story can be corroborated… At the end of the day we’ve got to make sure that according to the law we give them back to their rightful owner, be that Rose’s family or Sir Paul McCartney and MPL Communications (McCartney Productions Ltd). We can only apologise to any buyers who were hoping to bid on these items.”

The collection was estimated to be worth $48,000 and the family dedicated the money to Martin’s grandchildren.
