The Paul McCartney divorce is chugging along in real life and in the tabloid press.  There is a lot of back and forth between Paul McCartney and Heather Mills about the divorce settlement. 

According to a Reuters story their divorce has turned deteriorated into a battle for sympathy fought out under a glaring media spotlight.

She is on the attack and he is on the defense,” public relations supremo Max Clifford told Reuters on Tuesday. “He is the one trying to settle as quietly and quickly as possible.”

“He doesn’t want his dirty washing aired in public and she knows that. The more that appears in the papers about her being locked out of the house and the bank accounts frozen, the more embarrassed he becomes and the more pressure he is under.” That got a bit of a boost as financial icon Donald Trump is now weighing in according to Contact music UK.

According to the web site McCartney has been labeled “idiotic” by property tycoon Donald Trump for not writing up a prenuptial agreement before marrying Heather Mills.Twice-divorced Trump, who married for the third time to model Melina Knauss last year, has criticized McCartney for allowing romance to cloud his judgment, insisting business should always come before love.He says: “I know I sound like a broken record, but get a prenup.

I don’t care how much you love your fiancé; it’s just idiotic to get married without one.“Don’t believe me? Ask Paul McCartney what he thinks. I know he wishes he had one.”

McCartney and Mills separated in May and are currently in the process of getting a divorce.
