McCartney-Mills Severed Contact With Father After Hospital Cash Request

SIR PAUL McCARTNEY's wife HEATHER MILLS McCARTNEY was the last member of her immediate family to ditch her violent father - when he asked to borrow money while she was in hospital recovering from losing her leg.

The former model, who as a girl was left to raise her brother and sister when their mother left, would get beaten by her father JOHN if things at home weren't as he wanted them.

Mills-McCartney only severed all contact with him when he phoned her in hospital asking for money just after she lost her leg in a police motorcycle accident.

She says, "It was a realisation, really. It's like when you put your hand in a fire and you keep putting it back in.

"I was the last to give up. My brother and sister had given up on him years before.

"He had another child who is 20 now and she does not see him.

"A person only has so many chances I think. He never learned from his mistakes."
