Alanis Morissette’s Former Night Nanny Sues Singer For $130,000
Alanis Morissette has been sued by a former nanny who claims she was not paid overtime and forced to work 12-hour overnight shifts without breaks.
The lawsuit was filed by former nanny Bianca Cambeiro on Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court and seeks $30,000 in unpaid wages and $100,000 in damages.
Cambeiro was the night nurse for 39-year-old Alanis and her husband Mario Treadway and worked three to four days a week from 9pm to 9am, according to the lawsuit.
The ex-nanny alleged she was not paid overtime and was denied rest and meal breaks, according to a report on the lawsuit by TMZ.
Alanis gave birth to son Ever in December 2010 and Cambeiro claimed she was employed by the couple from August 2011 to March 2013.
Cambeiro also claimed she traveled with Morissette on tour and alleged that she worked seven days straight on seven different occasions, according to a report in RadarOnline.com.
The nanny claimed that she was not allowed to leave the baby’s bedroom under any circumstances during her 12-hour shift.
Cambeiro alleged that Morissette’s son was never to be left alone when sleeping, unless a parent was present or if she was relieved by the day nanny.
According to the lawsuit, the night and day nannies in January 2012 asked Morissette’s accountant about being paid overtime and allegedly were told, ‘We don’t do that.’
Cambeiro said she was paid $25 an hour and was seeking $30,000 in unpaid wages.
She also was seeking $100,000 in damages claiming she suffered emotional distress.
