Melbourne Nanny Talks About Life with Madonna

This is not a job I would ever want to have, that is for sure:

A MELBOURNE nanny has told how the strain of working 24 hours a day, seven days a week for Madonna drove her to the brink.

A week after she was sacked, Angela Jacobsen arrived home yesterday with nothing but kind words for the pop star.

But her Facebook website told a different story.

“Not putting up (with) this s— any more,” a furious Jacobsen wrote last month.

“Never have, never will. Standing up for my rights regardless of consequence. Sick of always being the one who compromises.”

The next day she wrote: “You know the score!!! No one messes with my party.”

A month earlier, as she prepared for a weekend off, Ms Jacobsen vowed to “make the most of my 48 f—ing hours” of freedom.

Ms Jacobsen was dismissed on the spot last week after she gave notice to Madonna that she intended to resign.

The party-loving 29-year-old played down her differences with the Material Girl.

“I think every job has tough moments but (they were) nothing out of the ordinary,” she said. “I have had a fantastic time. This is amicable, there is no hard feelings on either side.”

Ms Jacobsen, who played 24-hour nursemaid to Madonna’s adopted African son David Banda, was witness to the pop star’s bitter split with her husband Guy Ritchie last year.

Madonna was flying back to Malawi this weekend hoping to finally adopt the little girl she has longed for. Her determination to adopt orphan Mercy James, 4, was said to have been a major cause of conflict between her and Ritchie.  [Herald-Sun]

Good luck to her and hopefully she finds some less stressful work next time.
