Lowe, who wrote an article on The Huffington Post condemning one of his ex-nannies for what he described as an "attempt to damage and humiliate" his family, filed court papers in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles counties accusing the ex-employees of breach of contract, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Accusations Against Ex-NannyIn a 26-page complaint against the longtime former nanny, Lowe's lawyers say the woman claimed to have "a personal and intimate relationship (with Lowe), and, in effect, accusing Rob Lowe of infidelity." The Lowes also learned that the nanny repeatedly expressed romantic interest in Rob and told people that "she wished he would divorce Sheryl Lowe."
On at least one occasion, the nanny "bragged" about giving Lowe a massage during a trip with the Lowe family, according to court papers. (The couple claims it never happened.) The woman also allegedly claimed that Lowe sexually harassed her and that Sheryl Lowe was an "overly demanding" and "abusive" employer, who made "inappropriate comments of a sexual and racial nature" to her.
Lowe: Chef Stole Prescription DrugsIn the 19-page filing against former chef Pete Clements, Lowe claims the ex-employee had sex on their bed "with third parties" when the family was out of town, stole prescription drugs from their medicine cabinet that he later distributed to his friends, broke several security cameras and overcharged them for food. According to the suit, he also allegedly made statements to various people that Sheryl was heartless, cold and "unclean."
Responding to the suit, Clements told TMZ he had "no clue" about the lawsuit at all.
The suit against the other ex-nanny accuses her of engaging in a scheme to hurt the couple by spreading "malicious lies" about both Rob and Sheryl. While at work, she also allegedly used "profane and vulgar" language to describe the "intimate and salacious" details of her personal life.
Lowe, 44, said earlier Monday that the former nanny is demanding $1.5 million from the actor and his wife "or she will accuse us both of a vicious laundry list of false terribles."
