Wiki

Heather Anne Mills (born 12 January 1968) is an English charity campaigner and former model and the former wife of musician Paul McCartney; during the marriage she was called Heather Mills McCartney. Mills has an older brother, Shane, a younger sister, Fiona, and a half-sister, Claire.

Mills started her own model agency, in 1986, and married Alfie Karmal, on 6 May 1989, but divorced in 1991. Mills was living with her ski instructor, Milos Pogacar, in Croatia, in 1990, just before the Croatian War started, and later organized supplies for Croatia, accepting modeling assignments in Austria to pay for the trip. In London, in 1993, Mills was hit by a police motorbike and suffered serious injuries, losing her left leg, 6 inches below her knee. She later sold her story to the News of the World and used the proceeds to establish the Heather Mills Health Trust, which recycles discarded prosthetic limbs.

Mills met McCartney at a Pride of Britain charity event, and they were married on 11 June 2002. Mills gave birth to Beatrice Milly McCartney, on 28 October 2003. Mills separated from McCartney in 2006, which led to a highly publicized divorce, in which she was awarded £24.3 million in a court settlement, on 17 March 2008. Mills is a patron of Viva, the Vegetarian and Vegan Foundation, vice-president of the Limbless Association and was formerly a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Association Adopt-A-Minefield program. She continues to work on behalf of various campaigns, including aid for amputees, animal rights and for the banning of land mines. Mills was dropped by PETA after spending months helping and heading up their campaign to stop J. Crew from using fur from China. She succeeded and received an award from them only to be told by the McCartneys that they would not help PETA if she remained involved with them.
