Married Life Pays Off For Paul McCartney
Paul McCartney is once again a billionaire. The former Beatle now ranks third on the London "Sunday Times" list of the UK's wealthiest people in the music industry, with a fortune of nearly one-billion-76-million-dollars. The latest figure reflects a significant financial boost for the rock legend, who last year was reportedly worth close to 801-million-dollars. While Paul earned just over 32-million-dollars over the past year, his financial spike comes courtesy of his new wife, Nancy, who brought more than 242-million-dollars into the marriage.
Paul had been a billionaire once before. However, his fortune dropped below the ten-figure mark with the end of his marriage from second wife Heather Mills, who was awarded nearly 50-million-dollars in their divorce settlement.
