Heather Mills Sued By Former Nanny

Heather_mills  The former Mrs. Paul McCartney, Heather Mills, is being sued by her former nanny, Sara Trumble.  She filed a constructive dismissal and sex discrimination case when she quit her job in September, 2008.  The claim went to mediation but they were unable to resolve it, so the trial began yesterday.

The nanny claims she was forced to give Mills naked spray tans, was expected to start work at 7.30am to blow-dry her hair and forced to stay as late as midnight.  Mills has told friends she will not settle out of court and she is determined to “clear her name” and stop people from viewing her as an “easy target”.

Supposedly, Mills and Trumble were close friends during the end of Mills marriage to McCartney, and Trumble may have potentially damaging and embarrassing information about her that will come out in court.  Mills is representing herself, just as she did during her divorce.  Mills plans to argue that Trumble was a Nanny and a housekeeper and therefore had "other duties as assigned," not just taking care of Beatrice, who was six when Trumble was her nanny.  She will also say that she gave Trumble a new car, clothing for her baby, and took her on holiday to the Caribbean as a gesture of thanks for her support during her divorce.

A source close to Mills said: "Heather is facing the tribunal with determination to clear her name and prove she was in fact a very fair and generous employer.  She feels very hurt and upset that somebody so close, who was considered part of the family, would choose to level these accusations at her.  Heather doesn’t believe Sara has a case but she sadly accepts that when you become a high-profile personality then some people could see you as an easy target.  She was not willing to make any back room deal because she is determined not shy away from what she perceives to be unsubstantiated allegations."

The trial is in front of an employment tribunal and is scheduled to last four days.
