Mariah Carey And Nick Cannon Sued By Former Nanny

The former couple's nanny, who was reportedly dismissed in January last year, has now filed papers against Mariah and her estranged husband Nick Cannon seeking $100,000 in damages.

Mariah Carey is being sued by a former nanny who claims that she would work 100 hours a week.

The Hero star and her now estranged husband Nick Cannon have been named in a lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court, with Simonette Da Costa claiming that she went to work for the former couple in October and was refused any over time despite allegedly being “at their beck and call” at all hours of the day.

In papers that were filed in court on Wednesday, it read: “As such, she attended to their needs not only at home, but also during Ms. Carey’s travels for her global concerts and appearances.”

Eli Freedberg, Da Costa’s lawyer, continued: “She was on call 24 hours a day. She was always at their beck and call.”

For her services, Da Costa earned between $6,000 and $7,200-a-month for looking after Mariah and Nick’s fraternal twins Moroccan and Monroe.

“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 suit says, according to New York Daily News.

It is claimed that Da Costa was sacked from her job in January 2014 after Mariah telling her off “for expressing too much affection for their children.”

Freedberg also alleges that Carey had been “jealous” of Da Costa’s relationship with the twins.

“She was caring for the children too well. (Carey) was worried they were getting confused who the mommy was,” he claimed.
