A London judge awards Mills $48.6 million dollars in her divorce settlement with ex-husband McCartney. After only four years of marriage, Mills claimed $250 million; two years after divorce proceedings began, she receives less than a fifth of that amount. McCartney is also ordered to pay $70,000 dollars per year in child support for the care of their mutual child Beatrice, as well as covering the costs of her education and nanny.
Mills-McCarthy appears on the cover of People after reports that she and her husband, Paul McCarthy, are headed for a divorce. Source:
The truth is that the pair were just not compatible for the long haul. I don’t think it’s laughable to suggest she was bored, but I also don’t think it was a generational thing. You’ve got two people who’ve both got tremendous interests that are going to take them in opposite directions.
Mills wins $316,700 in damages for an accident involving British police motorcyclist PC Osborne. The case is settled out of court without any admission of guilt from Mills for the loss of her left leg. Mills issues a statement saying she only sued Osborne after he pursued his own claims against her for stress, anxiety, and loss of overtime due to a sprained wrist.
I feel a sense of relief that this is all over and this has ended in the right ruling for the public, not just myself.
