Tragic INXS rocker MICHAEL HUTCHENCE was driven to his death by nagging PAULA YATES, his mother claimed yesterday (30OCT00).
PATRICIA GLASSOP insists that Paula sent the singer over the edge by threatening to kill herself and their daughter TIGER LILY.
She believes the former TV celebrity - who died from a suspected drug overdose in September (00) - made threats in a final phone call to Michael. Within hours of getting the call, he was found hanged in mysterious circumstances in a Sydney, Australia hotel room on 22 November 1997.
Patricia also claims her son was planning to split with Paula. She says, "He didn't like what he had become - he changed with Paula. "I absolutely believe that if it hadn't been for her, he would not have killed himself, he'd still be here. "I think Paula phoned him and told him that she was going to kill herself and Tiger Lily just before he died. "She'd made these types of threats before to me and to other people."
