FOOD FIGHT! Styler, Sting

So Police woman Trudie Styler may not have been throwing carrots or cell phones, or pushing the servants down the stairs. Even so, private chef Jane Martin, who worked for Styler and her hubby Sting for eight years, is fighting back against her recent dismissal, claiming sexual discrimination and that Styler was "tyrannical."

The upstairs/downstairs drama, which the Stings have dismissed as ludicrous, began when Taylor, who "regularly ordered truffles by motorcycle dispatch from France and traveled 100 miles just to make soup" for her employer, became pregnant. Taylor claims she was forced to work 14-hour days while Styler became more and more abusive, saying her food was "stewed" and claiming she was "over" the chef.

And the worst part? Martin noted that when she was in Styler's favor, she regularly received lavish gifts like "cashmere twinsets" or "a ruby and sapphire necklace." The final insult came when Styler gave Martin a budget gift—eight pathetic tulips—for her last birthday in service.
