As Rob Lowe’s Nannygate continues, more allegations from Lowe’s former nanny Jessica Gibson have emerged. In a lawsuit filed yesterday, Gibson said that Lowe exposed himself, touched himself and groped her several times. Gibson also alleges that the West Wing actor grabbed her butt without consent.
Gibson stopped working for the Lowes in December 2007 after seven years of employment with them. In a statement made on the Today show, she said she stayed with the family despite the harassment because she “loved the children, and I needed the job.” Gibson also denied Lowe’s claim that she attempted to blackmail him for $1.5 million.
Lowe’s lawyer Larry Stein responded to Gibson’s allegations by saying that, "An investigation of dozens of present and former employees has failed to find one single person to verify her allegations. The allegations in the complaint are simply untrue."
