Chef Suit -- A Lowe Down Dirty Shame!

4/8/2008 2:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We're getting a look at the allegations that Rob Lowe and his wife Sheryl have leveled at their former chef and they're INSANE!

In the lawsuit, filed yesterday in Santa Barbara County Court, the Lowes claim they fired chef Peter Clements in December of 2007 after they discovered Clements had been having sex in their bed with strangers while they were out of town, stealing prescription drugs, breaking security cameras, stealing food, operating a catering business on the side (which violated his contract) and stealing their mail. Some employee! The couple agreed not to press charges against Clements as long as he kept his mouth shut.

Since then, Rob and Sheryl say Clements and other ex-employees have blabbed all over town, "discussing the Lowes' personal and business matters." They also claim Clements conspired with another former employee to spread "malicious lies."

Alleging defamation, breach of contract, intentional infliction of emotional distress and a litany of other complaints, the Lowes are asking for at least a million bucks in damages.

Rob and Sheryl a little advice ....Raise your own kids, and cook for yourselves. Stop hiring complete strangers to live in your house and profit from your insecurities and innuedoes.

Oh come on. Who is the real victim here?
Is Rob that desperate that he has to go through all of this for some publicity?

Maybe Rob is jealous that the Chef was using his bed more than Rob and his wife were?

Rob- quit being such a p**sy and get on with your life.

She looks great    

Being the target of malicious gossip and usury is part of being a celebrity.

If you don't like it, leave the business. But celebs don't leave because their lives are pretty sweet. On the flip side, they don't turn away all the positive special attention. Take the good with the bad.

Most of us don't have piles of money and VIP treatment to soften the blow of being betrayed and gossiped about.

Sounds like the chef violated them.

Sounds like Lowe DID sexually harass/have an affair with the nanny.

Note to Lowe's lawyers: if you think your strategy should remain trashing the sexual history of the nanny, think again.

If I were on that jury, I'd vilify Lowe for using that sexist Victorian tactic.
