McCartney: She's not a gold digger

Paul McCartney has lashed out against speculation about how much money his estranged wife, Heather Mills McCartney, stands to gain in their divorce.In a posting on his Web site Wednesday, McCartney wrote, "It's been suggested that [Heather] married me for the money, and there is not an ounce of truth to this. She is a very generous person who spends most of her time trying to help others in greater need than herself."Then on Thursday, Sir Paul had this to say on his site: "Seeing that so many inaccurate stories have been written at the moment about Heather and myself, all I can ask people to do is not believe them and understand that most what is coming out is made up and entirely false. Thanks for your support."McCartney and Mills, a former model and anti-land mine advocate, are separating after four years of marriage. NBC News reported that Mills, who has said McCartney turned down her offer to sign a prenuptial agreement, could claim as much as a quarter of his estimated $1.5 billion fortune.The couple married in June 2002 in a $3.2 million wedding in Ireland. Their daughter, Beatrice Milly, was born in October 2003. McCartney has three children from his 29-year marriage to the former Linda Eastman, who died in 1998. He also has a stepdaughter from Eastman's first marriage.
