The Jerry Hall story and Florence Pugh story were followed, globally. In both cases, the stories were obtained despite a wall of no comment all round officially. I have an excellent contact who rang me to share Jerry’s feelings and her distress over the divorce. With Pugh, it had been reported that there was some ill feeling but it wasn’t known that she was going to skip the press conference, photocall and after party at Venice - that information was shared by a film industry contact while I was working at the festival and proved to be correct. I’m adding in Paul McCartney because there is a place for more gentle revelations in the form of informed perspectives on big events, with some knowledge behind the scenes about those involved.
