Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey can’t seem to stay out of the headlines. The two entertainers started out well with what seemed like a story book romance. The couple were well known for celebrating their anniversaries by doing it all over again, planning a wedding and recommitting to love each other forever.
Unfortunately it seems that they have fallen under the Hollywood curse of a marriage that inevitably ends in divorce. The couple have been rumored to be in the middle of a divorce that they are trying t keep out of the headlines but it seems that they have yet another problem on their hands.
One wonders if the problem with a nanny saying she was required to work more than anyone should be required to has anything to do with the couple’s break up. It would seem that if the couple are not together anymore and are still trying to work on their respective careers, their babies may have fallen to the wayside and even been handed over to the nanny too much.
Mariah, Nick and ‘Dem Babies’ are being sued by a former nanny, according to reports, for simply showing their children too much affection? Something ain’t right!
The New York Daily News said that Simonette Da Costa has recently filed a lawsuit against the split couple after she said that she was forced to work 100 hours a week and was never paid any over time.
Da Costa supposedly filed court documents in Manhattan Federal Court, in these documents she also describes being on duty all day long without any food, naps or breaks.
Da Costa worked for the singer and funny man from October 2013 to January 2014, taking care of their sweet twins, Moroccan and Monroe, who are now at the age of three years old.
Da Costa claims that she was sent packing after Mariah Carey claimed that she showed too much affection toward Dem Babies. Kissing? Hugging? No details have been made clear.
The former nanny also makes claims that she was required to show up whenever the mother of the twins demanded for her. Even if that meant showing up in the middle of the night to ‘attend to every demand’.
Da Costa was said to have received an average of $6000 to $7200 a month and was never paid any more than that for her frequent overtime work that she claims she did.
