She claims Alanis held her hostage…
TMZ reports that the ex-nanny of Alanis Morissette is suing the singer and her husband, Mario Treadway, for allegedly holding her hostage.
Bianco Cambeiro filed the lawsuit against Morissette and Treadway, claiming the couple employed her from August 2011 to March 2013. She says she had to work a difficult 12-hour night shift looking after their newborn son. Cambeiro says that Morissette basically held her hostage inside their baby's bedroom while he slept and ordered her not to leave under any circumstances, not even for a break to eat. Reportedly, Cambeiro was only allowed relief if one of the child's parents was in the bedroom, or if the day-shift nanny replaced her.
She's also claiming she was denied more than $30,000 in unpaid overtime and other wages. She's suing for $100,000 on top of that for the emotional distress she suffered from the job.
