Heather Mills Awarded $48.6M From Paul McCartney

Heather_millspaul_mccartney A British Family Court Judge awarded Heather Mills a lump sum of $33 million plus the assets she currently holds worth $15.6 million.  For those of us who are arithmetically challenged, that is close to 50 million dollars.  Ironically, Paul reportedly offered $50 mil to settle, so litigating the divorce actually left Heather with less than had she just settled it. 

The court also ruled that the couple's 4-year-old daughter Beatrice should receive a "periodical payments order" of $70,000 per annum. On top of that, Paul will pay for the child's nanny and school fees.  The judge deemed that Heather had overspent during nearly two years of separation by $1 million.

Heather, who is not publicity hungry AT ALL, gave an impromptu press conference.  "I'm so, so happy with this."  "I'm so glad it's over."  "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," she said.  "I am standing here because Paul is insistent on the whole judgment being put out. I've said that if the whole judgment goes out then all the transcripts have to go out because it's going to be written in a way that they will try and make it that I wasn't successful."

Paul, upon exiting the court in an indifferent mood, merely said to waiting reporters, "All will be revealed."

The court has imposed a blanket order preventing disclosure of details revealed during the court case and in documents tendered to the court.  I'd love to see the judge in the Spears/Federline custody dispute do the same.
