In addition, Mills, who most recently was seen as a contestant on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” reportedly will receive another $7.1 million every year until their 4-year-old daughter, Beatrice, reaches her 18th birthday.

The divorce deal is believed to be the largest in British legal history and reportedly includes a clause preventing either party from ever speaking publicly about the breakdown in their marriage.
