Paul McCartney and Heather Mills Divorce Settlement

Was the McCartney-Mills Divorce Settlement Fair?

Paul McCartney and Heather Mills finally settled their divorce this week. She began the process requesting $254 million but ended up getting $48.6 million from the settlement. There was no prenuptial agreement involved when the couple married in 2002, and while Heather had some of her own acquired wealth it came no where close to the $800 million that Paul has in his Beatles name.

After the settlement was finalized, Heather said, “It was an incredible result in the end, to secure mine and my daughter’s future and that of all the charities that I obviously plan on helping and making a difference with — because, you know, it has been my life for 20 years.” However, her behavior in the courtroom suggested that she wasn't as happy with the results as she let on. The former model poured a glass of water over the head of Paul McCartney's attorney, Fiona Shackleton, and left her head soaking wet. And I don't think she was channeling sports teams that pour Gatorade over their coach's head when they win a big game.
