Price Ordered To Pay Compensation To Sacked Nanny
British glamour model Katie Price has been forced to pay out $8,000 (GBP4,000) in compensation to her former nanny after a judge ruled she had been unlawfully fired from her job. The busty Price - known professionally as Jordan - sacked childminder Rebecca Gauld in a row over holiday time during filming for her U.K. TV documentary The Baby Diaries, a show which followed the birth of the star's third child, Princess Tiaamii. Gauld was also kicked out of her house - a small cottage adjoined to the model and pop star husband Peter Andre's mansion in Surrey, south-east England after losing her job of 18 months. At an employment tribunal on Wednesday (12Dec07), Gauld told the London court of her humiliation at the sacking. She said: "I was very distressed by the events of the day - having lost my job and my home. The presence of the television cameras added to this distress." Price's attorneys later admitted Gauld's dismissal was technically illegal.
