Sting - Styler Was 'Wounded' By Discrimination Allegations
Sting's wife Trudie Styler has opened up about her 2008 legal battle with a former employee who accused her of sexual discrimination, insisting she was "very wounded" by the allegations.
The rocker and his wife were ordered to pay $40,000 (£25,000) to their chef Jane Martin after a tribunal ruled she was unfairly dismissed after falling pregnant and was a victim of sexual discrimination.
Martin, who had worked for the couple for eight years, told the court that she sank into a deep depression, feeling "small and insignificant" after she was made redundant.
But producer and filmmaker Styler admits she was devastated by the claims.
She tells Britain's Daily Mail, "I was very wounded. I'm a champion of human rights. I embrace children into my life. Sexual discrimination? That's something I don't to. It was a travesty of justice."
