Shame On You Sting & Trudie

A British labor tribunal has found that Sting and wife Trudie Styler engaged in "shameful conduct" when they fired their pregnant chef.

Jane Martin was let go in April 2006 after eight years as the couple's chef. Martin claimed Styler created a "climate of fear" and said she was forced to work 14-hour days, even when she had morning sickness. "[Styler] is without doubt the driving force manipulating others to perform her 'dirty work,'" the tribunal ruled. Damages are due to be decided at a hearing next month.

Styler says, "I am devastated by this decision and I will appeal."

Wow, that really sounds bad and the judgement doesn't reflect well either.
