A wealthy boss has been forced to pay his PA nearly £35,000 in damages after sacking her when his wife found out about their affair.
The woman was kicked out of the luxury flat in Belsize Park, Camden, east London, her chief executive lover had installed her in and sacked from her £40,000 a year job at the property company, which had a £2.6 billion portfolio.
During the couple's affair the PA was also bought a car and taken on luxury holidays to Australia, Cuba and Mexico.

The 32-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said her sacking left her suffering from depression and anxiety and too ill to look for a new job.
She told the Central London Employment Tribunal: 'In December 2010 he told me his wife had received a letter from somebody telling her about our relationship and about various details like the flat, and that we had gone on holidays.

'After that he started asking me to leave. He said that his wife was putting pressure on him to sever all ties with me and didn't know why I was still working there if the relationship had finished.'

Although they continued to sleep together he had become rude and dismissive in the office, it was said.
