London, Feb 28 : Intimate details of Sir Paul McCartney and his estranged wife Heather Mills' divorce deal could be published by the High Court for public scrutiny.
Justice Bennett, who presided over a five day hearing at the High Court to decide the slice of the former Beatle's fortune due to go to Mills, was scheduled to give his verdict privately in court on March 17.
However, he has given an indication to the estranged couple that he might release the decision publicly because of the huge public interest in the divorce battle.
"The Judge will hand down his judgment in private on March 17. He will then decide, having heard submissions from the parties, whether or not to make the judgment public in whole or in part. The submissions from both parties will be heard in private," The Telegraph quoted a spokesman for the Judicial Communications Office, as saying.
"It is not unknown in high profile cases, or where the judges think the case has legal significance, for some or all of the settlement to be made public," he added.
