Despite all the things that have been said about her, and all the vile names she has been called, animal activist and soon to be the ex-Lady McCartney Heather Mills insists that she married for love, and not money

Mills, who has been labelled a ‘gold-digger’ and ‘Lady Mucca’ by fans of the legendary Beatles singer, in her first TV interview since the couple’s split, maintained that the only reason she married McCartney, was because she fell “unconditionally” in love with him.

"I'm a good mother - I'm a good person. I fell in love for the right reason. I fell in love unconditionally," the Daily Mail quoted her, as saying.

Apart from professing her love on American show EXTRA, Mills also insisted that most of the rumours surrounding her were untrue, and that she was neither having an affair with her 22-year old trainer Ben Amigoni, nor was she trying to bleed her estranged hubby dry of his fortune.

"Eighty-five per cent of my income goes to charity. The word gold digger doesn't go with that...If I was a gold digger, I would have a lot of money in my bank account... I'd be worth millions. I haven't got a lover. I'm focusing on my daughter. It's totally made up!" she revealed.

Mills, who also describes becoming a mother as her "greatest accomplishment" following two ectopic pregnancies and six miscarriages, also insisted that she was “Never” even going to consider remarrying.

Sir Paul McCartney and Mills announced their split in May this year. The split signalled the end of their four-year marriage.

The couple’s divorce battle has turned extremely murky with allegations that Mills wanted half of McCartney’s fortune, and also reports that Mills was alleging physical and mental abuse during the course of the marriage.

The interview is set to air in the US next week.
