Sharon Stone's former nanny is suing the actress amid claims the Oscar winner insulted her Filipino heritage and ordered her not to talk to her kids.
Sharon Stone's former nanny is suing the actress amid claims the Oscar winner insulted her Filipino heritage.
Erlinda Elemen was fired by the star in February 2011, after Sharon reportedly discovered she had wrongly been paid overtime, and Ms Elemen alleges Sharon made a number of disparaging comments about Filipinos, including calling them stupid people.
According to the lawsuit, 'Basic Instinct' star Sharon ''criticised Plaintiff for frequently attending church and, on one occasion, forbade Plaintiff from reading the bible in Plaintiff's room in Defendant's residence,'' and ordered her not to speak to her three kids Roan, Laird and Quinn because she did not want them ''to talk'' like her.

Hollywood hardman Bruce Willis has settled a lawsuit against a childhood friend who allegedly tried to extort $100,000 (GBP51,000) from the actor.
The Die Hard star filed a lawsuit last year (AUG07) against BRUCE DiMATTIA, claiming he "was overcome by greed and jealous of his former friend's success" and threatened to disclose personal information about the star unless Willis bought him a car and paid him $100,000.
However, the action star has reached a settlement with DiMattia and their dispute has been "amicably resolved".
Willis' publicist Paul Bloch says, "The filing of the lawsuit by Bruce Willis against Bruce DiMattia was based on a regrettable misunderstanding and was based on misinformation.
"Bruce Willis wishes Bruce DiMattia the best of luck in the future and Bruce DiMattia wishes him the same."
Actress Geena Davis kept PRINCE ALBERT OF MONACO waiting at the Monte Carlo TV festival last week (ends07JUL06) after a make up and wardrobe malfunction.
The former COMMANDER IN CHIEF star attended the event despite her show being cancelled at the end of it's first season, but was half an hour late after fighting with her make-up artist.
She fired the artist because she didn't like the bronzer being used and started over again before having a crisis with her dress zip.
Spokesman Paul Bloch tells gossip site PageSix.com, "She used two or three different make-up people, but that is normal. She had a problem with the zipper on her dress, which delayed her.
"But she and Prince Albert sat together. She's never been treated better and had a terrific time at the festival."
Bruce Willis is fighting off claims he beat up a photographer in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (13JUN06), insisting he was simply shielding his eyes from flashbulbs when he accidentally made contact with a paparazzo. But snapper ANTHONY GOODRICH insists Willis pushed his camera into his face and chipped his tooth as he exited celebrity restaurant Koi. And, while Willis' publicist is playing down the incident on website TMZ.com, the photographer insists he was injured enough to check into hospital. He also filed a police report against the actor, alleging battery. Goodrich tells TMZ.com, "He smashed my camera into my face... All I was doing was taking his picture. I didn't say one word. I didn't get in his way." Willis' spokesman Paul Bloch claims Willis put his hand up "to protect himself" because he was "blinded by the lights" from photographers. Bloch insists that at no time did Willis "hit, push, or hurt" anyone.
Kevin Costner has fired back at Hollywood gossip suggesting he and his new wife Christine Baumgartner are on the verge of splitting up. The movie star's publicist, Paul Bloch, has issued a statement on behalf of his client in a bid to end fresh US tabloid speculation about the state of his marriage. He states, "The story is false. They sold their house in Hollywood and they are moving to Santa Barbara. Kevin is on location and Christine is getting the house ready. "Christine Costner is on her way to Shreveport, where Kevin Costner is shooting MR BROOKS. They'll both then go to Providence, Rhode Island for daughter Annie's graduation from Brown University. "The Costners will then head back to Los Angeles where Kevin will continue to help Christine with the move. After that, Kevin will go back and finish shooting the remaining several weeks of Mr Brooks." The split rumours come just a month after allegations from a masseuse that Costner performed a lewd act in front of her while he was honeymooning with Baumgartner in Scotland in 2004. The unnamed 34-year-old claims Costner grabbed her while she was massaging him, before dropping his towel and exposing himself. Bloch has already rubbished the allegations, stating, "We find it unfortunate that Mr Costner's name has been brought into what is essentially a dispute between a company owned by a good friend of his and a former employee."
Hollywood star Kevin Costner has been officially named at the actor accused of performing a lewd sex act in front of a masseuse while honeymooning in Scotland in 2004. The 34-year-old woman, who worked at the five-star Old Course Hotel spa in St Andrews, Scotland, alleged Costner grabbed her while she was massaging him, before dropping his towel and exposing himself. THE BODYGUARD star actor was honeymooning at the hotel with his second wife CHRISTINE in October 2004, as well as attending a celebrity golf tournament alongside Samuel L Jackson and Hugh Grant. The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, claims she was fired from her job soon after she complained to managers about Costner's alleged behaviour. Yesterday (25APR06), the masseuse was awarded an undisclosed payout from the hotel after accusing them of unfair dismissal and sexual discrimination. At the Dundee, Scotland, tribunal on Tuesday, lawyers successfully argued Costner's name should be revealed in the British press. When rumours circulated last month (MAR06) linking Costner to the case, his publicist Paul Bloch issued a statement, saying, "We find it unfortunate that Mr Costner's name has been brought into what is essentially a dispute between a company owned by a good friend of his and a former employee - and that it would tarnish what was a wonderful time spent at this resort with his wife." Following the recent development, Block reiterates, "This was never about Kevin Costner. It was a dispute between a hotel and an ex-employee." The hotel is owned by Costner's businessman friend HERB KOHLER.
Kevin Costner has angrily rubbished reports he is the mystery star who performed a sexual act on himself during a massage at a spa in Fife, Scotland. The revelations are part of a British court case, in which a masseuse is suing a former employer, claiming she was fired following the incident with the unnamed superstar. The actor, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is accused of dropping his towel and pleasuring himself, just moments before his wife went in for a massage with the same therapist, in October 2004. But Costner, who spent his honeymoon at the resort with his bride CHRISTINE, is furious his name has been linked to the case. His representative Paul Bloch tells the New York Daily News, "We find it unfortunate that Mr Costner's name has been brought into what is essentially a dispute between a company owned by a good friend of his and a former employee - and that it would tarnish what was a wonderful time spent at this resort with his wife."
