Heather Mills explains divorce court debacle

Paul McCartney's ex doused his attorney to 'cleanse and baptise her'

Heather Mills today (April 11) explained why she poured water over the head of her ex-husband Paul McCartney‘s lawyer during their divorce proceedings earlier this year.

In an interview with Britain’s GMTV, Mills said that she snapped because the famed Beatles‘ attorney, Fiona Shackleton, brought up private information pertaining to the couple’s four-year-old daughter while arguing the case.

Mills said that when she became angry, “Mrs. Shackleton said something under her breath so I cleansed and baptised her,” adding: “I thought she looked fantastic – I thought it did her the world of good.”

When asked how she felt about her ex-husband dating heiress Nancy Shevell, Mills responded: “Well I think he’s got three different girlfriends so I wish all the girls the best of luck.”

Mills was speaking from Las Vegas, where she’s judging the Miss USA pageant, reports the Associated Press.
