Linda McCartney Net Worth
Linda McCartney Net Worth: Linda McCartney was a photographer, musician and animal rights activist who had a net worth of $5 million. Linda (Eastman) McCartney was born January 1, 1977 in New York City, New York. Though her family was very public in their own right (she was the daughter of Leopold Vail Epstein, who later changed his name to Lee Eastman of 'Eastman Kodak' fame), Linda McCartney is best known as the wife of Paul McCartney, a founding member of the wildly popular '60s band The Beatles. After the breakup of the Beatles in 1970, Paul taught Linda to play keyboards and recorded an album with her, Ram, as a duo. He subsequently included her in the lineup of his subsequent group, Wings. The group won several Grammy Awards, becoming one of the most successful British bands of the '70s, though they endured criticism over Linda's limited singing ability. Linda McCartney had previously been married to Joseph Melville See and had a daughter named Heather Louise. Paul McCartney adopted Heather Louise the same year he married Linda. During her lifetime, Linda wrote several vegetarian cookbooks, became a business entrepreneur (starting the Linda McCartney Foods company with her husband Paul) and was a professional photographer, publishing Linda McCartney's Sixties: Portrait of an Era. Linda Louise McCartney (Lady McCartney) was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1995 and died at the age of 56 on April 17, 1998 in Tucson, Arizona, where the McCartneys had a ranch.
