Crying Heather Mills -- I've Considered Suicide

Heather Mills broke down on British TV this morning, telling a reporter she considered suicide due to all the negative attention directed toward her family.

"They've called me a whore, a gold-digger," said the estranged Mrs. McCartney on GMTV this morning, crying as she told the reporter, "I've had worse press than a pedophile or murderer and I've done nothing but charity for 20 years!"

Mills also took aim at the paparazzi treatment -- even noting Princess Diana's death -- and said that offing herself had crossed her mind, and referring to her daughter, said, "If I'm dead, then she's safe and she can be with her father."

Heather's started a petition against British tabloid The Sun in an attempt to "stop the manipulation of the media ... It has come to the point where the attacks on Heather are less than human."
