Mariah Carey’s Ex-Nanny Sues Her Over Unpaid Wages
Mariah Carey has been sued by her ex-nanny, Maria Burgues, who claims she worked for Mariah between late 2017 and early 2018, watching over her two kids and, allegedly, flying all over the world with them without getting paid her fair share for the job she was doing according to TMZ.
Burgues alleges in her lawsuit that Mariah wouldn’t let her take required breaks she’s supposed to get under California law, including rests and meals.
Burgues further claims Mariah had a bodyguard she reported who treated her like dirt out in the open on more than one occasion. She even alleges the guy almost got them into a major traffic accident for being on his phone.
She also discloses that the guy once threatened to throw her down from the car on a drive to Vegas. The nanny says when she finally complained, she was fired shortly thereafter.
From her complaint, it can be deduced that she worked more than what her Job Descriptions required and she was not paid for those.
Moreover, she claims Mariah didn’t keep proper track of her hours and she believes they owe her unpaid wages on her then-$25/hour salary, plus damages.
In a reply by one of Mariah’s representative, it was stated that “This is a legally and factually baseless claim that will be defended with vigor.”
