His career is the definition of longevity in Hollywood, but Rob Lowe may have a pretty messy lawsuit on his hands.
It seems his former nanny, Jessica Gibson (24), is asserting that the “West Wing” actor sexually harassed her during her seven year tenure as the family’s nanny.
According to the lawsuit, Lowe “placed his hand insider her pants” several times between September 2005 and January 2008. In addition, he also exposed himself to her frequently, groped her butt without her consent, and Lowe’s wife Sheryl made a habit of walking around the house naked, making vulgar comments about their sex life.
During her appearance on the Today show, Jessica was asked why she stuck around for seven years, to which she replied, “I love the children. I needed the job. I thought it would get better, and I was scared.”
Lowe’s attorney, Stanton “Larry” Stein refuted Gibson, saying, "An investigation of dozens of present and former employees has failed to find one single person to verify her allegations. The allegations in the complaint are simply untrue."
Last week, Rob filed a lawsuit against Jessica for allegedly spreading malicious lies about his family, saying she demanded $1.5 million as ‘hush money.’ He told press, "My family is devastated at this betrayal. This woman worked in our home and traveled with us off and on for seven years, without complaint."
Below is the lawsuit filed by Lowe last week, along with a picture of the accused actor out to lunch a few weeks back.
