London, Sept 12 : Heather Mills is seeking help from Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson in a bid to escape the 'hate mobs' that are making her life hell in Britain.
The 40-year-old former model claims her life has been made hell since her divorce from Sir Paul McCartney, 66, earlier this year and has pleaded with the business tycoon to be allowed to move to Necker Island, his 74-acre paradise in the British Virgin Islands, in order to "escape the hate".
And she is confident that Branson will grant her the 'dream move' to the Caribbean resort.
"Heather reckons she has been subjected to unprecedented levels of hate since her split with Paul," the Mirror quoted a source, as saying. "She's tried to start afresh a number of times but can never step out of his shadow. Even when she goes on holiday she can't get away from it, it's driving her mad. Heather sees Necker as the ideal place to get away.
"It would be the dream move for her - she wants to get out of the spotlight for a while.
"She wants to spend a year there to rest and rebuild her life.
"She's been in touch with Sir Richard and she is confident he will allow her to live there for a while," she added.
