Paul and Heather started dating in 2000. Beatrice’s dad subsequently got engaged to Beatrice’s mum on 23 July 2001, giving her a diamond and sapphire ring worth $15 000. The former duo eventually walked down the aisle two years later, on 11 June 2002. Then, in 2003, the former lovebirds welcomed their only daughter, Beatrice McCartney, a year later.
Beatrice McCartney’s Parents Were Only Married For Four Years
Despite the former couple’s love, their marriage could not last more than four years. Paul and Heather separated on 17 May 2006. The Beatle’s ex-wife said that the reason for the divorce was her ex-husband’s daughter Stella. She even called her “evil” and “jealous”.

The case of the ex-husband and wife was heard in the Royal Courts of Justice in London. Mills had filed a claim for £125 million but was offered only £15.8 million. The divorce was finalized on 17 March 2008 after a six-day hearing and she was awarded £24.3 million.
