Oh no! This is a terrible development in an already unfortunate situation!

Madonna is currently being slapped with an unfair dismissal lawsuit from former employees of her Raising Malawi charity, now that plans for a new girls school in the country fell apart!

As we reported, the singer was hoping to build a $15 million development near the capital of Lilongwe, but was abandoned once reports surfaced that suggested that there was some financial mismanagement. Executive Director of Raising Malawi, Philippe van den Bossche, quit back in October, and now, the board of directors has been completely dismissed.

Now, however, eight pissed off employees have pressed charges, according to their lawyer, Mzondi Chirambo, who explains:

“Their employment was terminated by the trustees of Raising Malawi Academy for Girls ostensibly following the change of plan not to build the school as planned. My clients are also being forced to sign a discriminatory termination agreement before they are paid their benefits.”

Yuck! What a mess!

In return, Madonna has 14 days to respond to the allegations, but has also reportedly looked into filing a suit against those who caused the plans to collapse.

Such a shame that so much ill-will has come from something that was supposed to better so many young people's lives.

Here's hoping that they don't lose sight of that, and can reach some sort of amicable agreement.

A few months ago Rina Bovrisse, a former manager at Prada Japan, filed a lawsuit against the fashion house for unfair dismissal after she claimed she was fired for being over weight and unattractive.

Unfortunately for her, Prada is countersuing the ex-employee for defamation.

The company believes Rina has damaged their image after making her claims and want her to fork over 33 million yen or $390,000!

Ouch!

Bovrisse hasn't made a statement about the countersuit, but we're sure she will.

ABC Hires Special Lawyer To Handle Desperate Housewives Lawsuit!

Uh-oh!

ABC must be really sweating it out over Nicollette Sheridan's lawsuit against her former Desperate Housewives boss, Mark Cherry, because they've hired an employment litigation specialist attorney named Adam Levin to take care of this mess!

And this guy is NOT fooling around! He's apparently served the actress' legal team with requests for a videotaped deposition as well as private documents.

He says:

"We have served subpoenas and are vigorously moving forward with our defense. We intend to delve into the merits of her claims, all of which we strenuously dispute."

We have a feeling this whole thing is going to get a whole lot uglier - if that's even possible - real soon!

What do U think?? Does Edie have a case or should she just settle??

Mucca's Sexual Discrimination Case Dismissed!

wenn5486645jb.jpg

Evil wins again.

The British courts have dismissed an unfair dismissal and sexual discrimination case against Heather Mills that was filed by her former nanny!

Sara Tumble had claimed that Mills had demoted her to a housekeeper after she took her maternity leave, but Mills claims Tumble was just upset because her employer wouldn't pay for her boob job!

Her spokesperson says:

"Heather is delighted with the decision of the Employment Tribunal that has dismissed all of Sara Trumble's claims. Heather was always a very fair and generous employer to Sara and is very pleased that this has been confirmed by Judge Vowles and the tribunal members unanimously in judgment."

Lucky break, Mucca!

Mucca Has A Heart Of Gold, She Tells A UK Court

mucca__optjb__optjb.jpg

She speaks!

We reported earlier that Heather Mills is currently in court duking it out with her former nanny, Sara Trumble, who claims the monster de-moted her to a housekeeper when she requested time off to take care of her own child!

clASSy!

Of course, Mucca took the stand and gave everyone a nice, hearty laugh when she - SHOCKER - alleged that she is an absolute delight to work for and Trumble just wants her tainted, gold-digging hard-earned money!

Says Mucca:

"I treated Sara like my daughter, because she often said her mum was cold and distant. I spent much of my time consoling her especially as she was having relationship problems. She is very motivated by money, this seems to be her motive in making a claim. I suspect she became aggrieved because I declined to pay for her breast enlargement surgery. None of my staff have had any qualifications. I like taking people on and making them better themselves. As is my history of being overly helpful Heather."

HA.

The only way Heather Mills is overly helpful is if we feel the need to gouge our eyes out and need some last minute motivation!!

Evil hack.
