‘In the last year he’s really turned on me and just been vicious,’ she said in the video.
‘He’s told me I’m not worth what I’m being paid, that he can replace me in a heartbeat. He yells at me and swears at me, it’s basically been an abusive relationship,’ she said in the video.’

‘So this afternoon I open up my email to see there’s an invite for a boat day and it’s called ”Celebrate Laura leaving”.
‘And I thought that it was for me, why would I think anything else? And I accepted.
‘And then he wrote back and said ”read the details please”. He’d invited the whole company to a day to celebrate the fact I’d left.’
