Sting and wife, Trudie, lambasted by Tribunal

Posted May 14th, 2007 by eric

Hilarious piece raking Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler, over the coals for the firing of their head chef for becoming pregnant.

“To an employment tribunal in Southampton, if you can imagine anything so vulgar, where Trudie Styler and her husband Sting – possibly the least self-regarding people on the planet they have done so much to save – have been judged to have broken employment law by sacking their chef after she became pregnant.”

It gets better:

“Trudie – film financier, environmentalist, Renaissance Nobody – plans to appeal, but as things stand, the judgment decrees that the chatelaine of Lake House is guilty of ‘shameful conduct.’

Did you ever hear anything so repulsive in your life? It’s the entire legal system in this country that’s guilty of shameful conduct, not the fragrant rock-star wife cliche probably weeping into a helicoptered-in green tea even as you read this.”

It’s hard to feel sorry for Mrs. Sting Ms. Styler, as it all sounds perfectly plausible for a selfishly indulgent, filthy rich rock star wife to feel her needs are so far beyond that of a plebeian servant whom she would just as soon step on as acknowledge on the street.
