Former Beatle Paul McCartney, appearing via satellite during the Television Critics Association press tour, said he’s been a victim of the widening British phone-hacking scandal and will talk with police when he returns to England, reports Deadline.com.

"When I go back (to England) after this tour, I’m going to talk to the police because apparently I have been hacked," he said. "I don’t actually know much about it, because the police won’t tell anyone but the person themselves. So I’ve been talking to them about that."

McCartney went on to call the hacking "a horrendous violation of privacy," the article notes. "I feel that more people than we know knew about it, and I think I’ll listen to what the facts are [before I comment further]," he said.

McCartney’s former wife, Heather Mills, alleges a journalist hacked her voicemail in 2001 and listened to a recorded message from the musician, as previously reported.

McCartney appeared at the TCA event to promote his 9/11 concert film on Showtime, the story notes.
