This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
A woman named Simonette DaCosta is suing the pair claiming that she was fired as their former nanny for being too affectionate with their twins.
In her lawsuit, Simonette claims that as a full-time nanny, she fed, bathed, and comforted Mariah and Nick's twins Moroccan and Monroe when they were just infants.
Um, isn't that the job??
Simonette is suing for back pay and other damages, and claims she worked occasionally 100 hours a week.
We'll keep you posted as this lawsuit develops!
