STING'S WIFE COMES TO THE RESCUE

Trudie Styler, wife of rock star Sting,is backing a controversial campaign to allow a terminally ill immigrant back into the United Kingdom to continue her cancer treatment, according to reports.Styler has reportedly donated $20,000 to an appeal fund, fighting to allow Ama Sumani to return from Ghana for her medical treatment. Sumani was being treated for malignant myeloma at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff when she was deported last month, because her visa expired. So far, $60,000 has been raised to cover Sumani’s medical treatment in Ghana and application costs for her return to the U.K. Janet Symmonds, the campaign’s organizer, confirmed Styler has pledged her support, but refused to say if she had donated any money to the cause.

STING SHOCKS RESTAURANT STAFF

Sting shocked staff at a restaurant by reportedly bringing his own chef to cook his meal. The singer was said to have insisted his personal cook prepare his dinner at Miami Beach's Casa Tua restaurant with a group of friends. A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "It was amazing - Casa Tua is one of the best places in town. It has some fantastic chefs and Sting brings his own person to cook! No one could believe it. Apparently his people booked ahead and said the staff could cook for him but not his friends." Sting was treating his friends to a meal at the renowned Italian restaurant to celebrate his sold-out concert, where his band The Police performed a string of their greatest hits. Casa Tue owner Michele Grendene said: "We try to maintain confidentiality with regards to our guests. We try to respect their privacy." Earlier this week, Sting and wife Trudie Styler were ordered to pay their former chef compensation after losing a sexual discrimination case. The couple were told they must pay 41-year-old Jane Martin £24,944 at an employment tribunal in Southampton on Tuesday. Martin claimed Styler sacked her from her job at the couple's Wiltshire estate because she was pregnant. The compensation includes £10,000 for injury to feelings and £16,000 for loss of earnings with deductions for redundancy pay Martin has already received. A spokesman for Styler said an appeal had been lodged and insisted the hearing had displayed bias against her. He said: "It remains Trudie's position that she, as a woman and a mother, has never in her life sexually discriminated against anyone and never would do so."
