UNDATED (USA TODAY) -- Sharon Stone is being sued by a former nanny and live-in housekeeper, who is claiming all sorts of things about the actress in court document filed Wednesday.
Erlinda T. Elemen's harassment lawsuit claims Stone insulted her Filipino accent, saying that Stone told her not to speak in front of her children so they would "not talk like you." The suit also claimed Stone would not allow Elemen to read the Bible in the actress' home. And Elemen says Stone fired her after discovering she had been paid for overtime, reports AP.
Elemen's attorney, Solomon Gresen, told the Los Angeles Times said that after five years of employment with Stone the nanny had "wonderful memories of the children." But he said she was unable to cope with what he described as "increasingly hostile and abusive behavior."
Stone's publicist, Paul Bloch, says Elemen is a disgruntled former employee who first sought disability and worker's compensation payments after she was fired roughly 15 months ago, reports AP. "Now, she is obviously looking for another opportunity to cash in," Bloch wrote in a statement. "This is a frivolous lawsuit for absurd claims that are made-up and fabricated. Sharon Stone will be completely vindicated in court."
Elemen's spokesman, Eric Rose, said in response to Bloch's remarks, "We can't wait to see Ms. Stone in court."
The former nanny is seeking unspecified damages on harassment, wrongful termination and retaliation claims.
