Heather Mills is so desperate to escape the British media's obsession with her split from former BEATLE Sir Paul McCartney, she is reportedly planning a permanent move to the US. The former model wed MCCartney in 2002, but the couple announced they were separating in May (06) after nearly four years of marriage. They have a two-year-old daughter BEATRICE together. Mills has been the target of a smear campaign waged by UK tabloids, with one newspaper claiming she engaged in "hardcore sex acts" during a shoot for a German sex book in the 1980s. The 38-year-old is currently in Los Angeles accompanied by Beatrice, where she hopes to launch herself as a television personality. She has previously been a guest presenter on the Larry King LIVE show and interviewed Paul Newman. A source tells British newspaper the Daily Express, "She has been seriously considering relocating to America. "In America there are so many exciting opportunities for someone of her character and determination."
