Heather Mills expecting £25million from Paul McCartney

Heather Mills reportedly believes she’ll receive a £25million financial settlement from Paul McCartney, according to her friends.

A source close to Heather spoke out about the figure after Paul and Heather’s former bodyguard Sean Ghent told the Sunday Mirror he thought between £100million and £200million would be a “fair settlement”.

The source told the Daily Mail that Heather was “furious that people might think she is after this much money”.

“Two hundred million pounds is way off the mark and has never been Heather’s target.”

“The real figure she has in mind is most definitely £25million, no more, no less. Heather is convinced that she and Paul are close to a settlement and agreeing this sum.”

“It is just a matter of time before the paperwork is completed and she walks away a millionaire.”

The couple are expected to finalise the financial aspects of their divorce - and draw up an agreement over custody of their daughter Beatrice - over the next few months.

Boy George arrested and bailed on assault and imprisonment claim

Boy George has reportedly been arrested and released on bail after a man accused George of assaulting and falsely imprisoning him.

Auden Carlsen has claimed he got chatting to the former Culture Club star online and was invited to George’s east London home in the early hours of Saturday morning to pose for photographs.

Auden claims George initially started taking photos as agreed but then: “George said he was popping out for milk at 5 am. I heard him come back and I walked into his bedroom wearing just my T-shirt.”

“I was jumped on by George and another man. George handcuffed me to a hook by the bed as they held me down.”

“I was convinced I was going to die.”

Auden claims George and the man then produced a box of whips and sex toys and told him “now you’ll get what you deserve” - but Auden managed to pull the hook from the wall and escape to a nearby newsagents, where he alerted the police.

A police spokesperson has confirmed that they are investigating an incident but as standard, refused to identify those involved, just saying that “a man in his forties has been arrested in connection with the allegation. He was taken to an east London police station but has subsequently been bailed to return on a date in July.”
