Among other things in the suit, Mills is accused of making up allegations that McCartney was a drunk and a wife beater. Her former publicist, Parapluie, claims that Mills owes it $168,000 in unpaid fees.

TMZ reports the firm got Mills a chance to participate on Donald Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice" but Mills wouldn't accept without a guarantee that she'd win. TMZ reports Trump denied the request.

Parapluie says Mills also claimed that all the money she earned from "Dancing with the Stars" would go to charity but only a portion of it has.
