Heather Mills was warned by her lawyers that her assistant's rant for McCartney via website could affect her divorce settlement.
Heather Mills was warned the Sir Paul McCartney attack on her website could affect her divorce settlement. The former model was told by lawyers to tone down her sister Fiona's rant about security because it could prove costly in court.
The message was removed from the website just hours after being posted. It was later re-posted without the allegation that Paul is endangering the life of his three-year-old daughter Beatrice by refusing to pay for security for Heather.
Fiona Mills, who works as Heather's personal assistant, slammed the former Beatle for ignoring death threats sent to Heather. Fiona ranted on her sister's personal website: "My sister and her daughter are receiving death threats. But they no longer receive the protection that would be afforded to any other member of the McCartney family."
Heather was advised to increase her security after police warned her she was the target of criminals from Liverpool. The 39-year-old is believes she is entitled to, and requires, a professional bodyguard, but Paul will not pay for one. Paul, 64, and Heather are due in court next month to resolve the row over security.
Earlier this week, it was reported that the estranged couple had reached an out of court divorce settlement worth £32 million.
However, Heather's legal firm Mishcon de Reya issued a statement denying Paul had made an offer. A spokeswoman said: "No offer has been made whatsoever at any time."
