Sir Paul McCartney has reportedly offered estranged wife Heather Mills a $45 million (GBP25 million) quickie divorce settlement, if she gives permission for their daughter to live with him. The deal would grant the pair joint custody of two-year-old BEATRICE, but she would have residency with MCCartney - reports British newspaper the Daily Mail. A source tells the paper, "Paul has offered Heather these terms and he has told friends he believes a deal is close to being made. It might seem very quick as they only announced their separation last week but they have actually been discussing this for several months. "Beatrice will live mainly with Paul but Heather will have access whenever she wants. "They want to protect her form their break-up as much as possible and are determined not to argue over custody or money." Mills' publicist revealed earlier this week (22MAY06) that any money she receives from MCCartney would be donated to the landmine charity she is a patron of. She said, "The way she sees it is that there is no point the money sitting in a bank account. It has to be working. The more acres of minefield she can clear, the happier she will be."
