Heather Mills has been ditched by her divorce lawyers. The former model, who is currently embroiled in a bitter divorce battle from Sir Paul McCartney, ignored warnings from top firm Mishcon de Reya not to talk about her split from The Beatles legend and has now been told to look for a new legal team.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Mishcon have just been tearing their hair out. They are astonished at Heather's crazy outbursts.
"She was warned against going on TV and talking about Paul, their marriage and anything about her daughter. But she just refused to listen. She was told time and again to keep quiet because she might hand Sir Paul's lawyers an easy victory.
"But she is so crazy she decided she knew better than the best divorce lawyers in the country.
"It is total madness. Her bid to win public sympathy could end up with her throwing away millions."
Just last week, Heather was dumped by her publicist Phil Hall following her outbursts on several UK and UK TV shows.
The 39-year-old vegan blamed Paul for the breakdown of their marriage, branded Paul's daughter "evil", claimed she was suicidal after receiving death threats and likened herself to the late Princess Diana.
Yesterday (08.11.07), she returned to UK breakfast show 'GMTV' and insisted it was a relief to give her side of the story. She said: "Speaking out was the difference between being in prison and being on parole. I got the chance to defend myself. It was unbelievably cathartic.
"I've had 18 months of the worst press ever and I got the chance to protect myself and my daughter. I stayed quiet for a year and it didn't work, I had 4,000 articles written about me."
Last night (08.11.07), Mishcon de Reya refused to comment on reports they are no longer representing Heather.
