Paul McCartney will have to shell out about $48.6 million to ex-wife Heather Mills in their highly publicized divorce case.
The U.K. usually maintains privacy laws pertaining to divorce cases but a court document was leaked Monday and revealed that a British judge awarded Mills $33 million, plus $15.6 million in assets.
The former Beatle and his estranged wife split in 2006 and the bitter divorce battle ensued. Mills accused McCartney of abusive behaviour and attacked the media for portraying her in a negative light.
Both parties were present at London’s High Court when the decision was ruled on Monday.
After the ruling, Mills told reporters that she was “pleased it’s over.”
McCartney’s camp said the 61-year old singer will not make a public statement on the issue.
