Heather Mills fought tooth and nail for the £24.3 million she was awarded in her divorce from Paul McCartney. After the nasty divorce, where Mills said she needed more money to properly raise the couple’s daughter, Beatrice, Heather appeared pleased with the settlement. But $50 million doesn’t go as far as one would think when Heather Mills is spending it.
A source said: “Heather’s 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 £10million since the divorce and still doesn’t have a finished house to live in. She hasn’t changed. In her eyes the whole world is against her.”

On top of all of that, Mills is asking McCartney to buy her East Sussex home she says she cannot afford to keep up. Paul feels his daughter is happy there and wants her and her mother to be able to stay there so is said to be considering it. Part of the money Heather has wasted away went to a large, million dollar, outdoor swimming pool at the estate.
It would probably be a wise investment for Mills to hire a financial manager. She seems to be spending wantonly, with no rhyme nor reason. A $5 million apartment in NYC, $12 million towards various improvements to various other properties, but can’t get the home, where she and McCartney want their daughter to be able to live, in order. It sounds like she’s a little manic with the money and can’t focus on the important things. Instead of making a home for Beatrice, she bought $1 million worth of vegetarian food for homeless people in New York. Sometimes it’s not “the thought that counts” in a gift, and using people who certainly can’t continue the eating lifestyle to promote it has no thought in it at all for the homeless. Mills could find herself among them if she keeps up the spending spree.
