A former nanny for Sharon Stone sued the actress yesterday claiming the Oscar-winner repeatedly insulted her Filipino heritage and fired her after discovering she had been paid overtime.
Erlinda T. Elemen's harassment lawsuit claims Stone insulted her accent, her religion and other aspects of her culture in the final months of her employment.
Elemen worked for Stone for more than four years and was promoted to head nanny, a live-in position, but was fired after the actress discovered the overtime payments.
The suit also claims Stone, who was nominated for an Oscar for her role in "Casino," forbade Elemen from reading the Bible in the actress' home.
The former nanny is seeking unspecified damages on harassment, wrongful termination and retaliation claims.
