Paul McCartney And Heather Mills Part Ways

Former Beatles star Paul McCartney and his wife, ex-model and anti-landmine advocate Heather Mills, today announced they were separating after four years of marriage.

"Having tried exceptionally hard to make our relationship work given the daily pressures surrounding us, it is with sadness that we have decided to go our separate ways", the couple said.

"Our parting is amicable and both of us still care about each other very much but have found it increasingly difficult to maintain a normal relationship with constant intrusion into our private lives, and we have actively tried to protect the privacy of our child".

Paul McCartney is worth an estimated $1.7 billion, and under English law, Mills could be entitled to claim up to a quarter of that as part of a divorce settlement.

Although Mills claimed in a 2002 'Vanity Fair' story that her husband turned down an offer to sign a prenuptial agreement to protect his fortune. "I wanted to prove that I love him for him... He said, 'I wouldn't let you.'", she said.

The couple married in June 2002 in Northern Ireland and their daughter was born in October 2003.
