Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa are being sued by their maid, reports TMZ. The former housekeeper, Maria Jiminez, claims Vanessa was extremely abusive and called her names, even demanding that she put her hand in a bag of dog crap to get a tag from her blouse. And that’s not even half of it. Reports say Vanessa wanted to deduct the cost of the blouse from the maid’s salary!
Maria Jimenez claims Vanessa called her “lazy, slow, dumb, a f**king liar, and f**king sh-t.” In the lawsuit filed in Superior Court in Orange County, Jimenez claims Vanessa accused her of stealing her (mouth) retainer. Jimenez says it got so bad — Vanessa allegedly “badgered, harassed and humiliated Maria by yelling and screaming at Maria and criticizing her in front of Kobe, the Bryants’ children, employees and other people in the household” — she threatened to quit but Kobe talked her out of it.
The final straw: Vanessa went nuclear because Maria put an expensive blouse in the washer. Vanessa demanded that Maria put her hand in a bag of dog feces to retrieve the price tag for the blouse. Maria says she wanted to quit and Vanessa responded that she “had to work until payday to pay for the $690 blouse, which she did.”
Maria is suing for wrongful discharge, invasion of privacy and emotional distress and unpaid wages.
Somebody needs to remind this hoe who’s money is in her pockets. We’ll give you a hint: it ain’t hers!
