Sir Paul McCartney has offered a divorce settlement worth £20 million to his estranged wife Heather Mills, according to reports circulating this morning.
The reports, which could not immediately be confirmed, said that Miss Mills was holding out for £50 million. At one stage it was predicted that the divorce settlement could leave the former Beatle with a bill for £200 million.
If the couples do not reach agreement, the case could be fought out in the High Court next year.
It is listed for a five-day hearing next February before Mr Justice Bennett, a Family Division judge.

Sir Paul, 65, and Miss Mills, 39, are using the two lawyers who acted in the divorce of the Prince and Princess of Wales.
Macca low-balled old Heather Mills, huh? They’re been married since June of 2002, she’s entitled to roughly $100 million. We’d scoff at a measly $40 million. If you have a bad drug habit and kept the money in a non-interest bearing account, it could conceivably run out before you die. On the other hand, the Yankees are paying Alex Rodriguez about $25 million per year and he can’t hit in the playoffs, so $20 million per for five years of marriage to a pop legend may be the going rate.
