LONDON – A tent is being set up and party decorations are being delivered to Paul McCartney’s house amid speculation that the former Beatle will marry fiancee Nancy Shevell in central London this weekend.

Paparazzi and well-wishers gathered Saturday at the pop icon’s residence in the posh St. John’s Wood neighborhood. British tabloids say the couple plan to marry today and have a small reception afterward.

McCartney and Shevell posted a notice of intent to marry at London’s Marylebone Town Hall in September. Officials say the announcement means they can marry any time in the next year.

His spokesman Saturday declined to comment.

Shevell would be McCartney’s third wife. He married his first wife, the late Linda Eastman, at Marylebone Town Hall in 1969.

Generations fete King of Pop at tribute in Wales

CARDIFF, Wales – Three generations of Michael Jackson’s family joined an eclectic roster of entertainers Saturday to pay tribute to the King of Pop, a celebration of the late star’s life overshadowed by the Los Angeles manslaughter trial of his doctor.

Participants urged fans to ignore the glitches that marked preparations for the show in Wales. “It’s not about the controversy,” said R&B star Ne-Yo., who kicked off the show with a rendition of “Billie Jean.” “It’s about celebrating his music.”

Jackson’s brothers Marlon, Tito and Jackie took the stage. But siblings Jermaine, Randy and Janet have stayed away, saying the tribute was inappropriately timed during the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray.

John Wayne items fetch millions

LOS ANGELES – Organizers say a two-day auction of more than 700 costumes, scripts, awards and memorabilia from the estate of film star John Wayne brought in $5.4 million.

The items had been kept by Wayne’s family since his 1979 death from cancer.

A portion of the proceeds will be used by the John Wayne Cancer Foundation to help fund cancer research and treatment.
