Mariah Carey is facing yet another lawsuit, and this time it is from her former nanny, Simonette DaCosta, who is claiming that Mariah and her husband, Nick Cannon, unfairly fired her.
Simonette claims that Mariah gave her the boot because she showed “too much affection” to the couple’s three-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
After hiring the nanny when her twins were still infants, it is believed that Mariah became jealous when Simonette developed a very close relationship with them, and her former employee is also suing for being overworked and forced to look after the children for more than 100-hours a week.
To be honest, Mariah, you can’t have somebody else look after your kids for 100-hours a week and NOT expect them to develop a bond… Right?
The 44-year-old singer admitted last February that she regularly fires nannies for “interfering” with the bond that she has with their children.
She admitted: “Unfortunately I have to have nannies but I’m very hands-on.
“I fire nannies like this, and I hate doing it, but I have to because if they try to make themselves more important in the baby’s mind than me.”
Nick, who split with Mariah last year, also confirmed that his ex-wife used to always fire the children’s minders, saying: “It’s something about a woman and her children… You know, the minute the child chooses to go to the nanny before they go to the mom — I would have an issue with that, too.
“Everything’s on a trial basis. It’s just like, hey, we’re gonna see how this works out. And we’re always traveling, so the nanny might not get a plane ticket to the next city.”
Sounds pretty cut-throat.
This isn’t the first time that Mariah has found herself in trouble with somebody that she has ‘let go’; just last month her former personal assistant, Ylser Oliver, came forward accuse the diva of forcing her staff to work “on average approximately sixteen hours per day… For six to seven days per week”.
Ylser claimed that she didn’t even get a break to eat during those very, VERY long days – nor did she get a dime of overtime.
Not cool, Mariah, not cool.
