After firing her children’s nanny, Sharon Stone invited the woman, who’s now suing her for harassment and retaliation, to come back in the future to say goodbye to the children she once cared for, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
The Filipino nanny, Erlene Elemen, filed a lawsuit against the Basic Instinct star accusing her of making derogatory comments about Elemen’s Filipino accent and heritage and alleging the actress told her not to talk to Stone’s children because she didn’t want them to “talk like you.”
Elemen also alleges that Stone said Filipino people were “stupid” and wouldn’t allow her to have a bible in the house. The former nanny says she would work seven days a week at times, but Stone accused of her “stealing” for getting overtime pay and demanded that Elemen pay her back.
Elemen received the emailed termination letter from Stone on February 8, 2011, and it doesn’t list a reason for the firing.
Stone writes, “This email will terminate your employment without cause, as of today, Friday 8, 2011. Thank you for your services. I invite you to come by and say goodbye to Laird and Quinn. Best Regards, Sharon Stone — See me for a letter of reference. SS”
The nanny’s lawyer, Solomon Gresen, tells RadarOnline.com exclusively, “My client has wonderful memories of that time in her life and is deeply saddened by losing that. My client isn’t alleging any misconduct by Ms. Stone towards the children.”
Elemen has been unable to find a regular full time job since and was paid very well by Stone, earning around $1,000 a week, according to a source.
On February 16, 2011, Elemen filed a complaint with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing alleging among other things, harassment, failure to prevent harassment and retaliation.
The suit seeks unspecified damages.
