Paul McCartney left a London courthouse today looking decidedly lighter in the wallet.

He was ordered by the courts to cough up close to $50 million to his ex-wife, Heather Mills.

Heathermil_simon_51606877_600Mills told reporters she was  "very, very happy" about the decision. She’d asked for $250 million. Macca had only offered $31.7 million.

The couple’s 4-year-old daughter will get about $70,000 per month. And her Beatle daddy will also have to pay his daughter’s school and nanny fees.

Well, as long as everyone’s happy…

Cleverly playing the charity card, a smiling Mills told reporters: "It was an incredible result in the end to secure my and my daughter’s future and that of all the charities that I obviously plan on helping and making a difference with — because you know it has been my life for 20 years."
