(Newser) – A gag order can't stop enterprising Heather Mills: She’s working on a "novel” about a model whose marriage to the world's most famous rock star sours, the Daily Mail reports. Paul McCartney’s ex-wife is asking for a nearly $2 million advance. "It doesn't take a genius to realize what is really behind this book," a source says.

In the novel, Mills dishes on McCartney—er, the “rock star”—saying he finds solace in drinking and cannabis. “The thing which infuriated her the most about the divorce was that she was gagged from ever telling her side of the marriage,” a source said of Mills, who got a $40 million divorce settlement. “This is her way of getting the information out there.”
