The stepfather of Sir Paul McCartney's estranged wife Heather Mills insists the former model deserves a staggering GBP200 million ($378 million) as a divorce settlement from the rocker, despite being "very confused".
CHARLES STAPLEY is horrified the animal rights campaigner, who split up with the former beatle in May (06), has been the subject of a media hate campaign.
And although he admits she has behaved "wildly", her purportedly hefty expectations regarding a divorce payout are not out of the question, because MCCartney is allegedly worth GBP825 million ($1.5 billion) anyway.
He says, "Why should GBP200 million be considered excessive if a man has GBP800 million?
"Why should she be branded a gold-digger? It's just a percentage of his wealth. If he was worth GBP80,000 and she got GBP20,000, nobody would be saying the things they have been saying.
"She is a very confused woman. (But) I feel very sorry for her. She has become a hated woman."
