They fight like cats, they square off like dogs – and now Heather Mills and Paul McCartney hire lawyers like royalty.
In an interesting twist to the Most Antagonistic Divorce Ever, each side has hired a lawyer that was involved in the Prince Charles/Princess Di proceedings.
On Tuesday, the former
sex slave Mrs.McCartney hired Anthony Julius, the attorney that represented Diana in her own split with the prince ten years ago. Perhaps because he’s also sort of royalty, Sir Paul then signed up with Fiona Shackelton Charles’ legal counsel in that matrimonial matter.
A decade ago, Julius won an approximately $3 million settlement for the Princess. Gold-digging Mills is after A LOT more than that from the ex-Beatle, however.
The lawyer arms race is only the latest development in the McCartney-Mills divorce saga:
Yesterday, Heather went to her husband’s home, only to find herself locked out, a circumstance which her spokesman said she found “hilarious.”
Here’s something else funny about your client: she’s friends with Paris Hilton!
