Rocker Chris Cornell and his wife are at the centre of a legal wrangle with a former maid.

The Soundgarden star's wife Vicky reportedly fired Elia Mora last Christmas (11) after the cleaner reportedly refused to return to the couple's home after her day's work was done.

Mora had worked for the Cornells since 2006.

According to her lawsuit, obtained by, Mora claims she worked 43 hours a week without uninterrupted breaks and was never offered overtime.
