London, April 21 (ANI): Fifty Miss USA finalists were so keen to meet Sir Paul McCartney that they turned detectives to track down the ex-Beatle.
The throng of beauties - including Miss Michigan, Miss Nevada and Miss Connecticut - booked in for dinner at the 66-year-old rocker's hotel in Las Vegas in the hope of meeting him.
"One girl heard Paul was in town and hunted him down. The girls were staying at Planet Hollywood, where the Miss USA contest was being staged, and discovered Paul's hotel was across the road. No one could stop them from looking for him, they were screeching with excitement," the Mirror quoted a source as saying.
The girls bombarded the former Beatle with love notes and flowers, sending them to his luxurious suite but Macca - who has been dating millionairess Nancy Shevell since November 2007 - didn't show up.
"All 50 booked in for dinner there in hope of stumbling across him. Paul declined as he probably felt girlfriend Nancy Shevell wouldn't be so enthralled. A couple of the girls even ran a competition to see who would be the first to get a picture or autograph and no one even managed that," the source added.
Macca was in Las Vegas to play a concert at the Hard Rock Hotel. (ANI)
