Sir Paul McCartney's estranged wife Heather Mills shocked viewers with an angry outburst during an interview on British TV. Mills - who is currently locked in a divorce settlement with the former Beatles legend - accused the press of ruining her life during a live interview on the GMTV breakfast show on Wednesday (31Oct07) morning. The 39-year-old former model lashed out at the British press and sobbed as she blamed them for keeping her "living in a prison". She also went on to talk about how she fears for her life after receiving death threats and put it down to a 'hate campaign' which the media have run against her. MCCartney and Mills wed in 2002 before splitting four years later (06) and are still trying to agree a financial settlement. It was hoped the couple would settle the dispute ahead of their daughter Beatrice's fourth birthday on Tuesday (30Oct07) but the court battle is still ongoing. MCCartney has allegedly offered Mills $40 million (GBP20 million) in a divorce settlement - but reports claim she is holding out for $100 million (GBP50 million).
