Mills hits out at divorce settlement

Heather Mills has complained about the size of the divorce settlement she picked up after her split from Sir Paul McCartney.

Ms Mills, who was married to the former Beatle for five years, told an audience at a vegan charity event that she should have got more than the £24 million she walked away with.

"I got five per cent of what we earned together in seven years. And we earned it together, I worked my butt off doing the tours and everything," she remarked.

Referring to the criticism she received during the acrimonious affair, Ms Mills said that many people thought she was "nuts" because she had been so outspoken.

Those whose own divorce is much more amicable than the McCartneys' may wish to do a DIY Divorce to avoid the cost of lawyers.

Other recent celebrity divorces announced include that of Hollyoaks actor Davinia Taylor, who is splitting from husband David Gardner.
