Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s Ex-Nanny Sues For Overtime Backpay

As if Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon need something else to worry about. The twosome is going through a hectic divorce, and now they’ve been slapped with a lawsuit by a former nanny asking for $100,000 in damages for back pay for overtime.

Simonette DaCosta, who was hired in 2013 to care for “Dem Babies” Moroccan and Monroe, is claiming she never received monies for working 100-hour weeks. The New York Daily News claims that, according to papers filed in a Manhattan court, DaCosta cared for the twins 24 hours a day while Mariah was on the road and at home, never receiving time off for official breaks or meals. However, she does state that she received $6000 to $7000 a month.

The Daily Times also reports that in the papers, DaCosta says she was fired in January 2014 by Mariah because she showed the toddlers “too much affection.” DaCosta’s lawyer claims Mariah was jealous of the close relationship DaCosta was forming with the children, and worried they kids would eventually begin favoring the nanny.
