Heather still unhappy with divorce settlement

Paul McCartney's former wife Heather Mills is still seething over the £24m (€25.9m) divorce settlement she received from the former Beatle.

McCartney divorced Mills in March last year and the former model used a speech at a London show for vegetarian charity Viva to complain the sum she received wasn't high enough.

Mills says: "I got 5% of what we earned together in seven years. And we earned it together, I worked my butt off doing the tours and everything."

Outspoken Mills, who charges up to £75,000 (€84,333) a time as an after-dinner speaker, also complained she has become unpopular: "Everyone thinks I'm nuts because I speak the truth and I'm very outspoken.

"The meat industry hate me, the dairy industry hate me, the Beatle industry hate me, the landmine industry. So I have a lot of enemies out there. But I also have a lot of support."
