Looks like Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon don’t only have to deal with their divorce drama, but now they’re being sued by their former nanny is who making a bunch of wild claims about the famous duo. Simonette DaCosta is claiming she went to work for the estranged couple back in 2013 to take care of their twins in their home. She’s saying that Carey fired her for being “too friendly” and for “expressing too much affection for their children.” According to her, Carey was jealous over the relationship DaCosta had with children. To top it off, she was “ONLY” making $6,000-$7,000 a month and says she didn’t get paid for the tons of OT she put in. (Sidebar: as a nanny, that is AMAZING money.. I’m sleep, doe.)
“Plaintiff was on duty during all hours of each 24 hour day with no entitlement for breaks, for meals, and even for sleep. Indeed, Ms. Carey would often call plaintiff at hours in the middle of the night and demand to be taken to her children or to be updated on the status of her children,” the lawsuit says. “Ms. Carey would not tolerate any delay when she called and plaintiff had to attend to her every demand, spontaneous or otherwise.”
Looks like things can get messy from here on out.
