Sir Paul McCartney's mean ex-wife Heather Mills has been awarded $48.6 million in their divorce settlement. The couple -- who wed in 2002 -- failed to reach an agreement last month and it was left to a High Court judge to make the final decision. According to High Court papers, Mills asked for $250 million, but the former Beatle offered her $31.6 million. On Monday, Mills was awarded $33 million cash with assets worth $15.6 million. Speaking outside the court, Mills said she is pleased with the judgment: "I am very, very, very happy. I was always going to get between $40 and $60 million, but Sir Paul was offering much less than that. "The judge said Paul was only worth $800 million, but everyone has known he has been worth $1.6 billion for the last 15 years. "I wasn't allowed any access into any of our accounts, I was locked out of every home. I hope now that me and my daughter can have a life and not be followed every single day. Apart from one TV thing, I have kept silent for 21 months. I wanted to keep it private but he wanted it made public he always wants to look like he's generous Sir Paul." Mills will not appeal against the judge's decision, but will appeal against the decision to release court papers that disclose details about the couple's 4-year-old daughter Beatrice. She adds, "I am appealing on the judgment being made public, I'm not appealing against the settlement." The couple's divorce case had been held in private, but it is believed the judge released the agreed figure in a bid to end speculation over the size of the financial settlement. McCartney, 65, married Mills, 40, four years after his first wife Linda died from breast cancer.
