Paul McCartney's silly love song with Heather Mills is over.
After weeks of rumors that they were living apart, the BBC and the Daily Mirror report that Sir Paul and his activist wife are separating after four years of marriage.
Paul McCartney has asked his wife Heather Mills for a formal trial separation, the Mirror can reveal.
Macca, 63, will tell his family and close friends of his bombshell decision today.
The couple's four-year marriage has collapsed amid bitter rows. Sir Paul told one friend: "We really can't go on like this. Enough is enough."
Heather, 38, remained at their home in East Sussex with daughter Beatrice, two, when Macca took a break in France to mull over their future. If the split becomes permanent she could get £200million of his £800million fortune.
Shortly after Paul lost his first wife Linda to cancer, he met Heather through her work at her charity. Despite reported opposition from his children, he tied the knot with Heather in a lavish ceremony in June 2002. They had a daughter, Beatrice, a year later.
Needless to say, Paul's daughter Stella must be totally doing the happy dance today.
