One of the news stories IÂ listened to this morning on my way to work was the one about Heather Mills asking for $20,000 a DAY in her divorce settlement from Paul McCartney.Â Just give me a week’s worth of that kind of settlement, and I’d be happy!Â A month’s worth, and I’d beÂ deliriously happy.Â
TWENTY THOUSAND dollars a day!Â Â Isn’t that just a tad greedy?Â They’ve only been married a few years.Â She sure wasn’t a part of why he made all that money.Â She wasn’t there backing him up when he was at the height of his career.Â She can’t base her request on that.
I had written earlier that they had no children together.Â However, a commenter wrote that she was almost certain they did.Â I looked it up.Â They do:
On 28 October 2003, Mills McCartney gave birth to the couple’s only child together, a daughter, Beatrice Milly McCartney. The baby was named after Heather’s late mother Beatrice and Sir Paul’s Aunt Milly
So they DO have a child together.Â That changed my opinion of whether or not Heather should get money from Paul McCartney.Â She should certainly get child support.Â I still think, though, that $20,000 a day is excessive for ANYBODY.
There is just something about Heather Mills that seems insincere and tacky to me.Â I’m not sure what it is.Â Â She will be on the next “Dancing With the Stars,” and maybe she agreed to do the show in order to make her public image a little more positive.Â Right now, though, I just don’t like her.
