Sir Paul married Heather Mills in June 2002, but it was not to prove a happy union. The four year romance between McCartney and Mills reached a bitter and highly publicized end, in 2006 they separated, but what started was a two-year battle over Mills' settlement - an eventual £24.3 million, plus annual payments of £35,000 to pay for the care of the couple's young daughter, born in 2003.
