Further adding to her already legendary history with money, Heather Mills is now receiving flak over a failed financial pledge to help a woman in need of prosthetic limbs. Mills, who herself uses a prosthetic leg, was touched by the plight of a Russian woman who lost both limbs in a train accident. Through email correspondence and a personal visit, Mills empathetically vowed to donate £10,000 to the victim. Now, its come to light that she’s reneged on that promise. From the article,

““Heather said she would personally get Maria some really good artificial legs, which would cost around £5,000, and cosmesis—the silicone cosmetic covering—which would be another £5,000. ‘She promised she would also provide all the medical support needed to get her walking again. She told us that because her charity only helped victims of landmines, she would support Maria from her own personal finances.’ Mucca [Mills], 40, then met Maria in Moscow, during a visit to Russia with Sir Paul, who was playing a concert in St Petersburg. Afterwards Mucca sent Robin an email saying: ‘I will pay for Maria’s costs agreed in advance and paid directly to the clinic. Please email me the price.’ In another she said:’ Email me costs individually and I’ll get money to you.'”

Is Heather Mills the type to only be charitable when married to a rich partner? Will her current state of duress — with only $50 million to her name — mean other individuals or organizations will be forsaken? 

There was, however, a happy ending for the woman promised so much. Jump on over to Cele|Bitchy for the rest.
