(Newser) – Snapping up everything from swanky real estate to savory soy dogs, Heather Mills has blown more than a third of her $40 million divorce settlement with Paul McCartney since March, The Sun reports. She spent some $13.7 million on property and donated $1 million in vegetarian food to homeless kids in the Bronx. The Beatle's ex, who also owes her attorneys and former publicist, now complains she can't afford her mansion.

“Heather’s been moaning her money isn’t going as far as she thought, but she’s just burning her way through it,” a source said. “She reckons she has spent [$16 million] since the divorce and still doesn’t have a finished house to live in. She hasn’t changed.”
