Usher is a multi-millionaire several times over so you’d think that if he needed to pay an employee of his a little more should the work call for it, there would be no issue. “Tuh!” says his former nanny Cecilia Duncan, though.
In a new lawsuit, Duncan says that Uncle Usher hired her as a part-time nanny in December 2010 to care for his two sons, Naviyd Ely Raymond and Usher Raymond V.
However, she claims her work often exceeded 40 hours per week. So she brought it his attention in 2011. His response? He fired her.
Duncan says that Usher ignored her complaints for more than a year until he finally fired her last September. She never got that overtime money either.
She’s now suing for wrongful termination and failure to pay wages. Though the damages are unspecified, sources tell TMZ that she wants something in the six-figure range.
Of course, Usher denies the allegations of his ex-nanny, and a “source connected to him” (probably either him or his girlfriend/manager) told TMZ:
… this is a frivolous lawsuit and all the allegations made by the former nanny are completely false.
