A former employee of Paul McCartney’s ex-wife Heather Mills is suing her for sex discrimination.

Sara Trumble wants compensation after allegedly being unfairly dismissed from her job as a nanny after she became pregnant.

Mills’ split from the former Beatle in 2006 was followed by a messy divorce in which she won 24 million pounds — some of it intended to pay for a nanny for their daughter, Beatrice.

Mills was criticized in the divorce judgment, which called her “less than candid.”

The lawyer for 25-year-old Trumble, Nick Fairweather, argues that the judgment should be introduced as evidence of Mills’ dishonesty.

Mills’ lawyer argues that would prejudice the trial. The hearing was adjourned Monday while a judge considered Fairweather’srequest.
