Canadian songstress Alanis Morissette’s former nanny definitely isn’t one of her fans.
The woman hired to take care of Morissette’s son is suing the recording star and her husband, accusing the couple of refusing to let her take breaks and failing to properly compensate her for long hours. Bianca Cambeiro says that during the nearly two years she was employed by the couple she was often ordered to remain for long periods in the newborn’s bedroom, in essence treating her like hostage, TMZ notes.
Cambiero is demanding more than $100,000 in damages, claiming emotional distress resulting from her employment. She also says that Morissette failed to pay her $30,000 in overtime.
The nanny was employed by the couple from August 2011 to March 2013.
Morissette rose to international pop fame in 1995 with the release of her album Jagged Little Pill after its rage-filled single, You Ought to Know, became an instant hit on U.S. radio stations.
