Heather Mills says ‘losing leg was 20 times easier than losing Macca’

Paul McCartney London, July 26 (ANI): Heather Mills has claimed that the trauma and pain she suffered after losing her leg in a traffic accident stands nowhere close to the way she felt after splitting from ex-husband Sir Paul McCartney.

The pair separated in 2006 after four years of marriage and went on to fight an ugly public divorce battle.

The union was officially dissolved in 2008 and the former Beatle was ordered to hand over 24.3 million pounds of his fortune to his ex-wife, as well as annual payments for their daughter Beatrice.

But, despite the animosity between Mills and McCartney, the charity campaigner has spoken out about the deep pain she went through after leaving the Beatles legend, and insists their love was for real.

“I was madly in love with him. I was absolutely devastated and numb. I didn’t know what to do. Losing my left leg in a motorcycle accident was 20 times easier to deal with than losing my marriage,” the Daily Express quoted her as telling The People newspaper.

“The thing that kept me going was Beatrice and my friends and family.

“Paul and I were completely in love. It was a real love story - but it ended even though I didn’t want it to. I had to leave. I had no choice,” she added.

Mills had a section of her leg amputated after a motorbike ran into her in 1993. (ANI)
