It looks like Sharon Stone can’t find good help!
Stone’s housekeeper of two years, Angelica Castillo, has filed suit against the Basic Instincts actress, claiming that she was wrongfully fired due to a back injury suffered from her domestic duties.
Castillo filed her claim in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday alleging that Stone denied Castillo the rest she needed after experiencing “extreme and severe physical pain” unloading groceries.
"Despite physician's orders to avoid lifting heavy objects, Plaintiff was required to perform her regular duties including but not limited to grocery shopping, lifting and moving heavy items as part of cleaning the residence."
On September 28, Castillo’s doctor placed her on a “brief period of bed rest.” By October 1, still suffering from physical discomfort, the former housekeeper said the actress "repeatedly yelled at Plaintiff for performing her duties more slowly, and called her 'crazy' and 'stupid.'"
Moreover, she states that Stone made her come into work, ignoring the Doctor’s orders, and fired Castillo that very same day.
Castillo is seeking unspecified damages.
This isn’t Sharon’s first time at the lawsuit rodeo. In May of 2011, her domestic helper, Erlene Elemen, sought legal action allegedly due to ill remarks about Elemen’s ethnic background and religious faith. She also claimed wrongful termination.
Think Sharon will get out of this one scot free?
