    Default Heather Mills' £55m deal: Paul McCartney ready to buy the gold digger's silence

    Sir Paul McCartney is poised to sign a record divorce settlement which will see Heather Mills walk away with £55million.


    Miss Mills is to take a lump sum of £20million and a further £2.5million a year for the next 14 years - every year until their daughter Beatrice turns 18, the Daily Mail can reveal.
    As part of the arrangement, Miss Mills will never be allowed publicly to discuss in detail the reasons behind the breakdown of the six-year marriage. Scroll down for more...

    The substantial annual payout includes a large share put aside solely to cover the cost of round-the-clock security for Miss Mills whether Beatrice is with her or not after she recently revealed she had been the target of "death threats".
    Miss Mills, 40, will be Beatrice's main carer but 65-year-old Sir Paul will have equal visiting rights. There will be hand-overs every week and each parent will spend alternate weekends with Beatrice.
    Such an arrangement is expected to make touring complicated for the former Beatle.
    Miss Mills has also agreed not to seek to live abroad for at least the next five years, which would rule out any immediate hopes of a full-time career as a media personality in America.
    As part of the arrangement, Sir Paul had not wanted Beatrice to go to private school but Miss Mills appears to have got her way and Beatrice is expected to begin her first term in paid-for education in Britain this autumn.
    Sir Paul's property portfolio - including the marital home in North London and homes in Sussex, Scotland, New York and Los Angeles - remains his under the deal. Scroll down for more...

    The large sum also reflects Miss Mills's success in arguing that Sir Paul should clear an outstanding legal bill with her former lawyers Mishcon de Reya, which is understood to stand at some £2million.
    Despite being equivalent to only 7 per cent of Sir Paul's estimated £825million fortune, the sum will be the highest settlement given to a wife in Britain.
    The £55million exceeds the £48million businessman John Charman was told to pay his former wife last year.
    One High Court judge who has presided over numerous divorce cases told the Mail yesterday that the deal in fact "favours McCartney", since he will be paying out only £20million immediately, then be earning interest on the rest until the annual payments go out to Miss Mills. The judge said: "Had Heather got the whole lot now, the interest alone would have ensured that over the years she would have been a lot better off. And it is a very small share of McCartney's fortune.

    "That said it is the kind of settlement one would expect would be awarded by a judge, when all the variables are taken into account.
    "It's sensible and both parties will come away feeling they have a good deal which is, essentially, what counts."
    The settlement amount closely reflects discussions the couple had at a Financial Dispute Resolution in October of last year.
    Sources on both sides said the couple have now agreed all the details of the settlement "in principle".
    Since Miss Mills currently has no legal representation, the couple are expected to spend much of next week having all aspects of the complex deal examined and approved in a closed hearing before High Court judge Mr Justice Bennett.
    A legal source said: "It should take a couple of days. Unless new variables emerge, it should be quite straightforward."
    The couple still have another 13 weeks under the two-year separation period required for a no-fault divorce before it becomes final, but it is understood that both parties are pushing for it to be finalised next week.
    The details of the settlement may never officially become public. A source close to the couple said: "Paul has always argued that for Bea's sake as much as anything, her parents should not be seen to be trawling over the break-up publicly for years to come."
    Miss Mills - who made a number of emotional TV outbursts last year including a rant on GMTV in which she said she had been close to suicide - had initially resisted being "gagged" on the subject of the marriage.
    Another stumbling block had been Sir Paul's resistance to pay for her security arrangements, said the source.
    As the Mail reported in January, after months of acrimony, Sir Paul made moves to resolve the dispute amicably.
    His legal team at Paynes Hicks Beach contacted Miss Mills with the message that "Paul's ready to talk".
    In recent weeks, the pair have spoken three or four times over the phone in an attempt to move towards an agreement. Respective spokesmen for Sir Paul and Miss Mills would not comment yesterday.

    She's been blabbing about the breakdown of their marriage from the beginning. Kind of late to be buying her silence now. Tell the greedy stupid cow to go fuck herself.

    Its to the point where I'D pay her just to shut the fuck up. Please don't tell her that, though. Sure enough, there she'd be, at my front door asking me to cut her a check.

    Miss Mills has also agreed not to seek to live abroad for at least the next five years, which would rule out any immediate hopes of a full-time career as a media personality in America.

    On behalf of the entire U.S., thank you Sir Paul!

    Yeah well he can afford it and it might teach him not to marry on the rebound. He has to bear at least some responsibility for getting himself into this situation. And I guarantee the grasping harpy won't STFU at all. I predict a book in the next 18 months.

    Bummer. She'd fit in nicely on "The View".

    I actually feel sorry for her to an extent. He has all the power in this relationship--always has, always will. I'm still not quite sure why they ever got married considering Stella's hate for Heather from the very start. They even chose to bring a baby into this chaos. Somehow, I doubt that was his idea but you never know.

    Lots of older men love having babies - it proves how virile and potent they are. Yawn. I have no sympathy for her at all. She was a real piece of work long before he married her and if he'd checked into her history using his head and not his dick he'd have realised how toxic she's always been to those around her.

    So Sir Paul is going to put his money where her mouth is - silence is golden.

    At least now she can't keep getting publicity for herself by harping on about her marriage to Paul. It also stops books from being published, magazine articles about it etc.

    She won't be able to talk about it in interviews either.

    So now she's just back to being plain old Heather Mills who can only talk about her own life....like porno pics etc....
