Trusted PA ripped off top model Erin O'Connor

Model Erin O'Connor's personal assistant has been warned she could face jail for stealing thousands of pounds from her boss to fund her own lavish lifestyle.

Michelle Knox-Brown (46) “dishonestly abused her position” to finance holidays in Morocco, India, Spain and America using O'Connor's credit card.

The trusted aide frequently ordered cars on a taxi account belonging to O’Connor, whose parents are from Ballycastle, Co Antrim. On one occasion she even went as far as to buy herself a new bathroom for her flat in Hackney, east London.

Knox-Brown admitted two counts of fraud. Judge Paul Dodgson, sitting at Kingston Crown Court, south west London, told her: “A custodial sentence is a very real possibility.”
