Heather Mills now wishes she had never split with Sir Paul McCartney
(newsoftheworld.co.uk) - Mucca, 39, stands to gain tens of millions from her high-profile divorce from Macca-but has told friends that his money can't buy her love. In an astonishing confession, she said she would give up the cash for another chance to make a go of it with Sir Paul, 64. Her admission came in a heart-to-heart with a close pal at the American Idol aftershow party in Los Angeles. Her friend revealed: "She said she'd been devastated by the divorce and has become an emotional wreck.
"Heather doesn't care about the huge load of money coming her way. "She'd much rather be happily married than rich and miserable. "She said she would gladly give back every penny for another shot at happiness with Paul. "She loved being married to him and it was the biggest regret of her life that things became so awful between them that divorce was the only option."
At one point during the bash at the Mondrian Skybar, one of LA's hottest nightspots, Heather was seen gazing mournfully out over the glittering skyline.
One surprised guest said: "She didn't sound like the total money-grabber we all thought she was. It's clear she still cares for Paul." The warring couple had resorted to using nannies as go-betweens when handing over their three-year-old daughter Bea to each other.
But last week we exclusively pictured them meeting for a friendly chat and child hand-over.
Heather's LA pal also revealed she would never move there.
She added: "She wants Bea to grow up with both her parents and is prepared to sacrifice a potential showbiz career for that."
