'Hypocrite' Mills Flies First Class
SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY's estranged wife HEATHER MILLS has been accused of hypocrisy after boarding a first class flight to New York - and reportedly leaving daughter BEATRICE in economy. Mills attacked the former Beatle following their divorce settlement on Monday (17Mar08) for failing to give their four-year-old daughter enough maintenance to travel first class and vowed to pay for the expensive travel costs herself. The former model said: "Beatrice only gets $70,000 (GBP35,000) a year so she is meant to travel B class while her father travels A class." However, the 40-year-old has booked a first class Virgin flight to the U.S. this weekend (22Mar08), while her daughter will travel out days later in a cheaper seat, reports British newspaper The Sun. A spokesman for Virgin could not confirm or deny the allegations, adding, "We never discuss passengers' travel arrangements. Mills won $33 million (GBP16.5 million) cash with assets worth $15.6 million (GBP7.8 million) following the breakdown of her four-year marriage to MCCartney. The couple - who wed in 2002 - failed to reach an agreement last month (Feb08) and it was left to a London High Court judge to make the final decision.
