London, April 2 (ANI): Heather Mills has said her relationship with her nanny Sara Trumble soured because she refused the latter money for a breast enlargement.

Testifying before the employment tribunal brought by Sara Trumble, 26, on the third day, Mills said their "very close" relationship took a turn for the worse when she refused to pay Trumble 4,000pounds to undergo the cosmetic surgery in the spring of 2008.

"I had a breast reduction when I was 21 and I couldn't pick anything up for weeks because it was so painful," the Telegraph quoted Mills, as telling the panel.he added: "I didn't criticise her wanting to have a breast enlargement, I just felt it would have been wrong of me to help with something that could have been a reaction to her boyfriend or her hormones."

However, Trumble's lawyer Nick Fairweather accused Mills of lying.

He said: "I suggest that your previous comments were to intimidate and bully and belittle her to stop her from going on with this claim.

"I suggest that you're telling a very, very unpleasant lie."

Mills replied: "I'm not telling a lie. She asked me for 4,000 pounds, how on earth would I have known that amount when I put my statement together?"

Fairweather continued: "If this tribunal finds that you lied about that, would you agree that this is a despicable thing to do?"

Mills answered: "I never did it."

Trumble, 26, is claiming undisclosed damages on grounds of discrimination over maternity leave, sex discrimination and unfair dismissal.

Rubbishing Trumble's claims, Mills said: "Our house, even in the most stressful times, was a very supportive environment.

"Sara and I have never had a cross word.

"I would never raise my voice to her and I have never been bad-tempered to her, ever, ever, ever.

"What was very surprising for me was that we were very close and she told me a lot of personal things and I could not believe that she didn't discuss any personal grievances with me."

Later Mills told reporters she felt like she had "been betrayed by someone who I felt was part of the family". (ANI)
