Paul McCartney To Pay Heather Mills Nearly $50 Million In Divorce Settlement

A British court has ordered former Beatle Paul McCartney to pay estranged wife Heather Mills 24.3 million pounds ($48.7 million) ending a bitter divorce battle.

Speaking after the judge's ruling, Mills said: "I am so glad it is over. It is an incredible result in the end. We are very, very pleased. I am so, so happy with it." But Mills thought she could have got more: "The judge said Paul was only worth 400 million pounds ($800 million), but everyone has known he has been worth 800 million pounds ($1.6 billion) for the last 15 years."

The court also ruled that the couple's 4-year-old daughter Beatrice should receive $70,000 per year, and McCartney would pay for the child's nanny and school fees.

The settlement was only a fifth of the $250 million sum Mills had sought, but she still ended up with the equivalent of about $34,000 for each day of her four-year marriage. McCartney had offered her $31.6 million.

Mills added: "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."

How Mills said this with a straight face, we're not sure, but you can see a video below:
