Heather Mills has reportedly spent almost half of the £24.3 million divorce settlement she received from Sir Paul McCartney in just seven months
Heather Mills has spent almost half of her £24.3 million divorce settlement in just seven months.
The 40-year-old former model received the enormous amount after her split from Sir Paul McCartney was finalised in March, and has reportedly since splashed out £10 million on properties and holidays and forked out £500,000 on staff wages.
Heather is so worried about her finances she has even asked Paul to buy her £4 million East Sussex home as she claims she cannot afford to renovate it.
A source said: "Heather has been moaning her money isn't going as far as she thought, but she's just burning her way through it. She reckons she has spent £10 million since the divorce and still doesn't have a finished house to live in."
Heather has reportedly already spent £1 million improving the luxury estate and has even had an outdoor swimming pool installed.
In July, she bought a £2.5 million New York apartment and has spent a further £6 million on other properties.
Heather has also had to settle large bills from her former publicist Michele Elyzabeth - who recently branded her "a calculating, pathological liar and the biggest b***h on the planet" - and divorce lawyers.
The former model has also donated £600,000 of vegetarian food to homeless children in the Bronx.
