Heather Mills McCartney has been awarded 16.5 million pounds in her divorce settlement from Sir Paul McCartney. Heather Mills also reportedly has 7.8 million of her own assets in addition to that, leaving her with a total 24.3 million pounds. Enough to support her , her daughter and her charities she says!
Heather is however going to lauch an appeal against the ruling.
"Miss Mills, who leaves the marriage with a total of £24.3 million after taking her own assets into account, immediately announced on the steps of the court that she will fight on. She said she was "so pleased it's over" but said she is to continue her legal battle by challenging the judge's ruling that the whole of his ruling should be made public."
In the News report Paul McCartney has a reported estimated £400 million in assetts, though it was thought to be £800 million.
"Mr Justice Bennett said in his summary that the fundamental issue of the main divorce hearing heard in private over six days last month was what financial provision should be made for Miss Mills. In his ruling, he said there was no evidence that Sir Paul's assets were in excess of £800 million, but were about £400 million"
I just cannot for the life of me fathom why anyone needs to bank this much money or have it floating around in assets? What is the point of accumulating wealth if you do not make good use of it.
Sir Paul may plan to pass it on to his loved ones after his death, but why not let them enjoy it while he is alive?
Why not do some real good in the world. A cash injection of that magnitude could surely make something radical happen somewhere affecting thousands of lives?
Paul McCartney is not alone though. Many accumulate great wealth, do their bit for charitable causes and consider that enough. Perhaps it is, but I do just wonder, what is the point?
