THE family of England ace John Stones’ dumped girlfriend have lost their jobs working for him following the shock split, it is claimed.
World Cup hero Stones, 24, allegedly told childhood sweetheart and mum to their 18-month-old daughter Millie Savage: “It’s over. I want more freedom.”

The £150,000-a-week Manchester City star packed a bag and quit their £3.4million mansion, hours after ditching Millie shortly before Christmas.
Millie’s parents were both employed by Stones, with their son Mitchell working as a chauffeur, the MailOnline reports.
He is said to have driven the footballer around in the star’s Rolls Royce Wraith or Range Rover while mum Mandy and dad Phillip worked at the six-bedroom house.
A family friend confirmed the Savages were told not to return to work in December, when John moved out of their home.

Millie’s mum Mandy reportedly looked after the mansion and would regularly babysit their granddaughter, while dad Phillip did odd jobs and maintenance.
A family friend said: “They are really upset and have been left high and dry.
“Both of them were working for John and he just told them they were not wanted any more when he left Millie. This has devastated them.”
Mitchell, 29, told MailOnline he no longer worked for Stones and confirmed his parents were also told they were no longer needed.
He said: “I don’t work for him anymore and can’t say anything.”

The childhood sweethearts started dating when they were aged just 15.
John has now moved into a £6,000-a-month apartment in Manchester, in the same block as his manager Pep Guardiola.
Millie has stayed at their six-bedroom home near Knutsford, Cheshire, and a friend said: “They both want to live there. Things could get nasty.”
The pal added: “She’s devastated. He left with no real explanation.
“They had a lovely home and seemed to have settled down as the perfect family.”
And last night her mum Mandy told Mail Online: “We are absolutely devastated. John was like another son to us.”
She said Millie has had “good days and bad days” since the rift.
The couple met as 12-year-old pupils at Penistone Grammar School, South Yorks.

Millie was at John’s side as he rose from Barnsley’s academy to joining City in 2016 for £47million, a world record fee for a defender at the time.
That year events organiser Jessica Peaty, then 20, told how she romped with the star after meeting at a restaurant.
She claimed he told her that he and Millie had split.
Jessica claimed she and John started meeting weekly at his £900-a-night suite at the Lowry hotel.
Jessica is said to have alerted Millie to the fling after spotting pictures online of the couple shopping. Jessica said: “My heart sank, it was absolutely awful.

“Even though I had a gut feeling something wasn’t right, it was the confirmation.”
Millie forgave John and they moved to their dream home in 2017.
He pledged his love with a tattoo of her on his arm.
Last summer Millie was at the World Cup in Russia to cheer on 37-cap John as he scored twice in the 6-1 win over Panama and the Three Lions reached the semi-finals.
Despite driving a £250,000 Rolls-Royce Wraith and a Range Rover, John has a reputation as being humble and unflashy.

Last night, he declined to comment on the split.
Millie would only say: “We were a very private couple and didn’t want to be in the limelight. I didn’t want other people to know.”
She agreed she was suspicious at first but said: “There isn’t anyone else involved.”
