Heather Mills sought money for horses she doesn’t ride and wine she doesn’t drink, says a judge who found her divorce-settlement demands “unreasonable, indeed exorbitant.”

In court documents in her case against Paul McCartney, Mills estimated her living expenses, including millions of dollars yearly for housekeepers, helicopter pilots, clothes, chauffeur and security guards.

Here’s a rundown of her projected expenses:

• Mills claimed for seven fully staffed properties with full-time housekeepers in the annual sum of $1.29 million.

• Annual holiday costs of $1 million including private and helicopter flights of $375,000.

$250,000 for clothes per year.

$60,000 for equestrian activities annually. The judge noted she no longer rides horses.)

$80,000 for wine a year. The judge pointed out she does not drink alcohol.

$86,000 for a driver a year.

$40,000 for a carer and $380,000 for professional fees p.a.

$1.08 million a year for security.

$1.25 million annually to give as charitable donations but Mills admitted $985,000 would be used en route in helicopters, first class and private jets.

$146,000 for the cost of business staff and $80,000 for helicopter hospital flights a year.
