Admitting that she was madly in love with The Beatles star, Mills says the only thing that kept her going after the break up was their daughter Beatrice.

Heather Mills insists the trauma and pain she went through after losing her leg in a traffic accident was nothing compared to the way she felt after splitting from ex-husband Sir Paul McCartney. The pair separated in 2006 after four years of marriage and went on to fight an ugly public divorce battle.

The union was officially dissolved in 2008 and the former member of The Beatles was ordered to hand over $38.9 million (24.3 million pound sterling) of his fortune to his ex-wife, as well as annual payments for their daughter Beatrice. Despite the animosity between Mills and McCartney, the charity campaigner - who had a section of her leg amputated after a motorbike ran into her in 1993 - has spoken out about the deep pain she went through after leaving the Beatles legend, and insists their love was for real.

She tells Britain's The People newspaper, "I was madly in love with him. I was absolutely devastated and numb. I didn't know what to do. Losing my left leg in a motorcycle accident was 20 times easier to deal with than losing my marriage." She adds, "The thing that kept me going was Beatrice and my friends and family."

"Paul and I were completely in love. It was a real love story - but it ended even though I didn't want it to. I had to leave. I had no choice."

Heather, have you forgotten that the court documents are out there for all to read? In court you said you had millions but were unable to prove it. The Justice Bennett basically called you a liar, but I guess he must be a Beatles fan too. All those lies must have damaged you greatly as you think we will believe any of this nonsense.

i can't imagine being married to a beatle is easy.. my hat's off to you for putting your neck out there despite the bad press..and at the end of the day, a lot of marriages end in divorce...i left my wife not because i didn't love her but because we just grew apart...

Yeah, right it was worse. Somehow he and his first wife Linda were able to keep it together for 30 years and probably into old age if Linda hadn't prematurely died. So the problem was Paul, right?
