Lady M denies marrying for money

Heather Mills has told a US TV show that the only reason she married Macca was because she was truly in love with him – not because he is worth a fortune.

She chose American entertainment programme Extra to do her first telly interview since her split from Sir Paul, 64.

Heather, who’s reportedly demanding an £80m divorce pay out, told the show: ‘I’m a good mother. I’m a good person. I fell in love for the right reason. I fell in love unconditionally.

‘If I was a gold digger I would have a lot of money in my bank account. I’d be worth millions and millions. But 85 per cent of my money goes to charity.’

The 38-year-old also took the opportunity to deny allegations that she is romantically linked to her personal trainer Ben Amigoni, 22.

She says: ‘Ben is not my lover. I haven’t got a lover. At the moment , I’m focusing on my daughter. It’s totally made up.’
