Heather Mills McCartney could receive £70 million in the divorce settlement between her and estranged husband Sir Paul McCartney, according to reports.
The former Beatle was married to Mills for four years and they have a three-year-old daughter together.
The Daily Mail has reported that the former model could receive a lump sum of £15 million, but could then be entitled to annual payments of around £15 million every year until their daughter turns 18.
New nickname for Heather: Heather "70 Bills" Mills. We owe a mea culpa on this one. We mentioned yesterday (July 19th) that the Mills camp turned down £20 million and that Sir Paul’s camp wasn’t going to give in to the £50 million sought by Heather Mills. So now she gets £70 million (about $140 million US) spread over 15 years. That’s still not as much as A-Rod, but he probably would have made it further on Dancing With The Stars, so he’s worth it.
In Other Celebrity Marriage News:
Laurie David, wife of Seinfeld creator Larry David, has finally filed for divorce. We mentioned that they were on the splits back in a June Dish We wonder if it was something that Wanda said or was it Jeff’s big mouth wife? Larry is going to have his hands full making this up to her.
Also, Steve Martin is engaged to be married to girlfriend Anne Stringfield. It’s symmetry. One falls apart, one comes together. Circle of life with Martin and David. This would be a great time for them to collaborate on something. Maybe a reality show in which Steve helps Larry on dates by giving him advice in a hidden earphone and maybe Michael Richards could host. Hmmm?
