Mills' Former Husband Blasts Divorce Payout
HEATHER MILLS' ex husband has leaped to the defence of former BEATLE SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY, insisting she doesn't deserve a penny of the singer's huge fortune. Businessman ALFIE KARMAL, 48, split from the former model in 1991 after just 20 months and warned the rocker to beware of Mills when they announced their engagement years later. Now he is furious to learn that Mills could receive up to GBP200 million ($380 million) from MCCartney's estimated GBP825 million ($1.5 billion) fortune following the end of the couple's four-year marriage. He fumes, "I don't think anybody deserves to lose hundreds of millions of pounds. "Somebody who has made a significant amount of money from his own talents should not have to pay out huge sums just because a couple were once married. "We have both been Heathered. If I have anything in common with Sir Paul it is probably that. "I'm not really surprised the marriage is over. Our marriage lasted just under two years - we had been together for five years off and on. But she ran off lots of times. "It was a bit like the RUNAWAY BRIDE. I used to think she had a permanent pair of sneakers on under her shoes. She always ran away." MCCartney and Mills announced their split in May (06). They have a two-year-old daughter, BEATRICE, together.
