This was never going to be pretty. Following a Sun story this afternoon that claimed Paul McCartney ex Heather Mills demanded a “six-figure sum” to appear in Capcom’s Bionic Commando, the amputee model has said she’d like to appear in a game in which journalists from the paper were shocked at the genitals from a lie detector.
“I know one game I’d happily appear in and I’d do it for free,” she said on her Twitter account.
“Connect Sun journalists to a lie detector machine which triggers an electric current attached to their privates.
“If they tell the truth they’d get a good boy drop. But if they tell a porkie pie… it’d give them a short sharp shock to the privates.”
Mills went on to say the Sun’s journalists would likely have fun at the treatment.
“They’d probably enjoy it and not only would we all be able to tell Sun fact from fiction,” she said. “One day’s power surge from their uncontrollable bullshit would generate enough power to light up England each and every week.
“Now that’s what I call alternative energy.”
The Sun’s original story said Mills had turned down involvement in the game after Capcom refused to pay a significant sum of money.
Mills reacted, saying the money was to be a charitable donation.
Capcom declined to comment on the matter this afternoon.

Update: Capcom just mailed this over: “We will not be commenting on the matter.”
Update 2: Mills has apparently confirmed the truth of the story on her Twitter, saying the large sum was to be for a charitable donation.
The ex-model lambasted Capcom as “stingy” in the process. Here are the tweets:
Got offered to promote an amputee bionic computer game, from a wealthy computer games company I said if you donate a large sum to charity
The stingy company came back saying they couldn’t, what happened to charitable businesses, seems they just want to exploit and give nothing
Update 3: Mills has responded, saying she’d appear for free in a game in which Sun journalists were attached to a lie detector by their genitals.
This is awesome. The Sun’s claiming that Heather Mills, Paul McCartney’s one-legged ex, demanded a “six-figure sum” to appear in Bionic Commando, and wanted the game to revolve around a character based on her.
Capcom approached her about the game “because of her charity work with amputees,” according to that piece.
Said a source: “She was insistent she wouldn’t do it for a smaller fee and said the producers should make her the star.
“The request was way, way over budget and they certainly weren’t keen on basing the game on her.”
Just mailed Capcom. In between bouts of choking.
