Can't Buy Me Love

It happens all too often—when a marriage sours and couples divorce, there's a protracted battle over who gets what.

In the case of celebrity splits, money is often the thing at the center of a break up. For former Beatle Paul McCartney and ex-wife Heather Mills, more money than any one person should ever have is causing quite a bit of contention. Mills was awarded about $48 million in the final divorce proceedings, about a fifth of what she'd petitioned for. In her estimation, she gave her own life goals to be wife to a legend, but acted as a business partner and shrink to her hubby.

We're not sure if that's true, but $48 million seems like more than enough for anyone to live on. But then, as the Beatles once sang, money can't buy you love. [The Economist]
