I refused to sleep, eat or drink for a couple of days afterward. It’s difficult to imagine how long this has been going on for.’According to Rekord, nanny had been employed with the family since May of this year.Ms Theron, originally from Zimbabwe, had decided to set up a hidden camera when she began to notice bruises on Laila’s neck and arms.
