Could Emma Watson's Illegal Employee Spell Trouble For The Harry Potter Star?

emma watson under investigation over illegal work visa immigration status housekeeper

If there's anyone we didn't expect to get in trouble for breaking the rules, it's Hermione Granger.

But it looks like Emma Watson is under investigation for breaking the UK's immigration laws!

Apparently the Harry Potter hired an American housekeeper to help look after her NYC apartment. But when Emma returned to London for three months, the housekeeper went with her.

Border Agency officials reportedly questioned Emma's employee after a complaint was filed.

See, as an American citizen with only a tourist visa, the housekeeper was not allowed to be employed while visiting the UK.

So if she WAS still on Emma's payroll, as officials suspect, the actress could be liable for a fine of up to £10,000! (That's over $17,000!)

    Her business manager should have known better. Pay the fine and learn a lesson.

    Emma Watson probably could have purchased one great purse for that price. Oh wait, she most likely gets purses for free…

    Child stars like Justin Bieber and Lindsay Lohan get in trouble for drugs, Emma for employment. Worst case scenerio for her is that she misses out on a couple Harry Potter TV Marathon paychecks :p
