Heather Mills is being sued by a former nanny, Sara Trumble, who claims that Mills forced her to work under degrading conditions and discriminated against her after she took time off for maternity leave. We first heard that Trumble was suing Mills for an undisclosed amount back in December, 2008. At that time, the buzz was over Trumble’s claim that Mills forced her to give her a naked spray tan once a week and that she had to come in to work at 7:30 am every morning to blow dry her boss’s hair. Having failed to reach a settlement, the case is now in court. More details are coming out about Trumble’s work conditions and they’re in no way favorable to Mills. It’s not like we expected anything else from this woman, who has also been sued by her former PR rep and was called “explosive,” and “vile” by the judge presiding over her divorce with Paul McCartney.
HEATHER Mills’ former nanny told yesterday how she was reduced to tears by the diva-like demands of the Dancing on Ice star.
Sara Trumble, 26, described to an employment tribunal how Sir Paul McCartney’s ex-wife left her a “rude” voicemail rant on Mothers’ Day.
It insisted that she make herself available to work – even though she was on maternity leave and had been through a difficult pregnancy.
Sara also claimed she was treated in a “humiliating and demeaning” way in a row over a birthday party – and FORCED to record an interview praising her boss, dubbed Mucca for her sordid porn past.
She also said suspicious Mills, 42, even GRILLED her over whether a new male pal had flirted with her.
Sara, who finally quit after she was replaced as a nanny and given cleaning duties, is claiming damages on grounds of discrimination over maternity leave, sex discrimination and unfair dismissal.
Mills, mum to Sir Paul’s six-year-old girl Beatrice, was left fuming as Sara gave evidence to a panel of three in Ashford, Kent.
She shook her head and hissed “no, no” when Nick Fairweather, representing Sara, urged the tribunal to accept evidence Mills was a known “liar”, referring to her High Court divorce ruling. They dismissed it as “not relevant” to the case.

Even if Trumble successfully sues Mills, she might have trouble collecting a settlement. Mills admitted earlier this year that she’s squandered just about all of her $50 million divorce settlement from Paul McCartney. She wasted a fortune in less than two years by maintaining about six different properties and throwing lavish parties and vacations for her entire entourage. A relatively small amount went to charity, which Mills of course exaggerated. How many of her “friends” are going to stick around now that the money is trickling down to nothing?
