A U.K. judge has just awarded Heather Mills around $50 million of Paul McCartney's money, enough to keep her in golden legs for a lifetime. You think she'd be pleased about this, right? But no! Immediately after the proceedings, Mills stalked down the steps of the London court and complained to the press that the judge said that McCartney was worth £400 million when "everyone knows he's worth £800 over the last fifteen years." Then she announced she would contest the decision to make the settlement figures public, which she said Paul had insisted on doing. "He has always wanted it public because he wants to make it look like he is … generous," she ranted, because apparently nothing will make her happy and she will never go away ever.
UPDATE: From CNN: "The judgment included 35,000 pounds ($70,000) a year for the couple's 4-year-old daughter, Beatrice. Mills said she was unhappy with that amount because it isn't enough for school tuition, private security, or first-class airfare. 'He likes her to fly five times a year on holiday," Mills said of McCartney. "It's 17,000 (pounds) for two people return (round-trip) first class, so that's obviously not meant to happen for her anymore. It's very sad.'" Because obviously that can't come out of the $50 million.Judge Awards Heather Mills £24.3 Million in Divorce Ruling [Times UK]
