Despite only being married to Paul McCartney for four years, Heather Mills was awarded $46.5 million and an additional $70,000 for her daughter’s “expenses” in court yesterday. This is a far cry from the $250 million she was demanding, and less than the $100 million settlement she and Paul had mutually agreed upon. However, McCartney’s lawyer, Fiona Shackleton (who represented Prince Charles), talked him out of it and urged him to let a judge decide. He did and the gamble paid off. Mills’ response after the ruling? Throwing a glass of water at Shackleton’s head and a 12-minute rant outside the High Court because she felt she didn’t get enough money. The Daily Mail reports:
Miss Mills threw water over her former husband’s lawyer and then laughingly announced that she had been “baptised in court.”
Awww, poor Heather:
A close friend said that in private she was devastated about being awarded so little. “In court it is clear that she just got too cocky. “The worst thing she could have done was represent herself. On quite a few occasions, Heather was just too brusque with the judge and would talk over him. High Court judges don’t take kindly to being ranted at. Heather just came across as incredibly greedy.”
In 1993, Heather Mills was hit by a police motorcycle while crossing the street. The damage to her left leg was so severe, it had to be amputated below the knee. Nine years later she married Paul McCartney. They had one daughter. Today she has $50 million. All this must be some kind of puzzle or one of those optical illusion paintings you have to stare at, because I’m having a hard time finding where I should feel sorry for this bitch.
