Lady M opens up about her divorce on US TV show

Heather Mills appeared on TV in America last night and denied claims she is a gold digger.

The 38-year-old former model, who lost a leg in a road accident, said she had been genuinely besotted with Sir Paul McCartney, 64, and had suffered untold anguish over their divorce battle.

‘I was just madly in love, blinded by love,’ she told US show Extra. ‘I’m a good mother, I’m a good person. I fell in love for the right reasons. I loved unconditionally.’

She said her four-year marriage turned into a nightmare and added: ‘I would rather someone come up and chop off all my limbs than go through what I went through.

‘If you’re limbs are chopped off you get another limb and there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

‘When you’re villified for doing nothing but falling in love with an icon – I’d rather have all my limbs cut off. That’s the God’s honest truth.’

Heather, who has a three-year-old daughter Bea with Sir Paul, said she has vowed never to marry again. ‘It’s too devastating,’ she explained.

‘I mean most people know divorce is devastating anyway but to go through it so publicly even when you haven’t said a word or done anything.’
