LONDON – In her first interview since divorcing Paul McCartney, Heather Mills has admitted to pouring water on the head of the Beatle's divorce lawyer and wished his "three girlfriends" the best of luck.
Mills, speaking on GMTV in Britain via satellite from Las Vegas, freely admitted to dumping water on McCartney's high-profile lawyer Fiona Shackleton during a hearing in which the judge read the final divorce settlement.
"Paul's lawyers and him argued to have the judgment put out with all my daughter's private information and our private information on this one-sided judgment," Mills said. "And Mrs. Shackleton said something under her breath, so I cleansed and baptized her."
Mills, who won a $48.7 million settlement, said she thought the wet hairdo made Shackleton look "fantastic."
The animal-rights campaigner, who is in Las Vegas to judge the Miss USA pageant, said she would love to live in America, but she wants to keep her daughter, Beatrice, close to Paul McCartney.
"There's plenty [of] holidays," she said. "Kids have four, five months holiday a year, so whenever my daughter's with her dad on holiday, I pop over here and do my charity work, cause this is where we raise most of our funds."
She said the support she gets from the public is 99 percent positive.
"You have to remember that apart from a certain aspect of tabloid media, I get a huge amount of support from the public," she said. "A lot of people are very behind sort of David vs. Goliath situation, where you're fighting the establishment, and I've done it for 20 years."
Mills didn't discuss McCartney directly, telling the interviewer that she has been barred from discussing the former Beatle.
"I have been gagged, with no choice of anything else," Mills said. "So I'm not actually — it's unbelievable. But they can write and put out what they like but I am not allowed to discuss him in any way whatsoever."
But that didn't stop her from addressing McCartney's rumored girlfriends. He has been linked to U.S. socialite Nancy Shevell, actress Rosanna Arquette and horse trainer Tanya Larrigan.
"Well, I think he's got three different girlfriends, so I wish all the girls the best of luck," she said, adding "better them than me."
