Paul McCartney counts cost of split

Paul McCartney's divorce could cost him a quarter of his multimillion pound fortune.The former Beatle announced on Wednesday (17.05.06) that he was separating from his wife of four year, Heather Mills - blaming media intrusion.In a statement on his website - the 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' singer vehemently denied the former model was only after his cash, writing: "It's been suggested that she married me for the money. There is not an ounce of truth in this."She is a very generous person who spends most of her time trying to help others in greater need than herself. He fumed: "All the work she does is unpaid so these stories are ridiculous and completely unfounded. I'm very sad to see that some insensitive people would choose a moment like this to spread these vicious rumours."Stephen Foster from high profile divorce lawyers Stewarts Solicitors is quoted as saying: "He famously didn't sign a pre-nup as he said it was unromantic. If they don't resolve things amicably, that could be a very expensive decision."McCartney and Mills - who have a two-year-old daughter, Beatrice - met in 1999 at a charity event, a year after the death of his first wife, Linda.
