Sir Paul McCartney has found a nifty way to help pay for his divorce from Heather Mills – he's finally completed a deal to release the Beatles' back catalogue on iTunes after lengthy legal wrangling.

According to today's London Evening Standard, the Beatles' singles and albums will be made available for download once Sir Paul's divorce has been settled in the High Court.

The release of the Beatles' back catalogue online will be a massive windfall for Sir Paul, Ringo Starr and the families of John Lennon and George Harrison.

Albums including Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, the White Album and Help! could raise as much as £200m.

McCartney's solo catalogue has been available for download since May last year.
