Nanny -- Rob Touched Me in Lowe Places

4/15/2008 8:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Here comes the "she said": Jessica Gibson says that Rob Lowe exposed himself, touched himself and groped her several times.


In a cross complaint to the original lawsuit, filed yesterday in Santa Barbara County Superior Court, Gibson claims between September 2005 and January 2008 Lowe "placed his hand inside Gibson's pants in order to touch her crotch" and "grabbed Gibson's buttocks without consent." Gibson also claims she feared Lowe would "attempt to further sexually assault her."

Gibson's lawyer Gloria Allred says the Lowes tried to "hide behind" the confidentiality agreements that Gibson signed, and used that as an excuse to not "properly pay" their former nanny.

Gibson did say on the "Today" show -- with lawyer Allred by her side -- that she never blackmailed Rob to the tune of $1.5 mil, and claimed that she didn't call the cops despite the alleged sexual battery during her seven-year stint with the Lowes because she "loved the children, and I needed the job."

In a statement read on "Today," Lowe's lawyer Larry Stein said, "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."

Whether true or not, let's just use some common sense here. "An investigation of dozens of present and former employees has failed to find one single person to verify her allegations." The thing about any person who sexually harasses, etc. is that they make sure they engage in the inappropriate conduct when no one else is around so that it's one person's word against their own. Yeah, there are a few exceptions but I'm talking in terms of the norm. Do you think the guy's going to drop trow and expose himself to the nanny in front of the chauffeur and gardener, too?

Of course the she's-a-gold-digger contingent always comes out in any 'he said, she said' case but Rob Lowe doesn't possess a sterling reputation himself. He has a lot to potentially lose if these allegations are proven true and thus has every reason to lie. The public forgave him to an extent once and allowed him to rehab his image, but Rob Lowe is savvy enough to know that a second scandal may permanently put him out of the public's good graces.

People said hateful things about a girl named Monica once upon a time and it turned out the President himself was actually the liar. We'll probably never know in this case who is really telling the truth. Rob Lowe's pre-emptive campaign seems a bit like the actions of a desperate guilty man who's afraid he's going to lose his career and family to me but I'm willing to consider both sides of things.

ok, so it's either she's lying her ass off or he really did do it, BUT she consented and loved every minute of it. everyone knows about his past so it isn't impossible that he wouldn't have something w/ her. but there's no way someone would stay at a job for all that time if they weren't enjoying what's going on.

either way, she's noy getting any money from them.

MH, you are so right, comparing this whore to Ms. Lewinsky who was sexually harassed by the President of the US while his wife and an army of secret service agents were in the White House. With logic like that, I assume that you side with Ms. Mills, the stripper that lied and brought down an entire US university lacrosse team, and the endless stream of male and female opportunists who utilize sex, scandal, and character assination as a process for financial and professional advancement.

Get your head out of your ass, MH, this woman is about as likely a victim of sexual harrasment as Rush Limbaugh would be, and it is cases like this that set the rights of real victims back in both the civil and criminal justice system.

But, hey, you are likely baiting your own boss and getting ready for your own whore lottery, so you have to defend a fellow artist - right?

The rabid ignorant hatred of women on this site speaks to the low level intelligence of those who view this site, the ugliness and emptiness of their lives, to the obvious fact that none of you could get a date in high school, and that TMZ's ignorant misogyny attracts a like audience.

Get off the internet and get a life, people.

Sorry to burst your ignorant fantasy bubbles, but your "idols" are deeply flawed, McCartney, etc etc

I don't know what happened at the Lowe household. But I do know Gloria Allred wants fame more than anything.

Rob Lowe makes all kinds of accusations of the nanny.

If she was so salacious, profane, why diid HE keep employing her?

Why didn't he fire her?

Rob Lowe doesn't have to beg anyone for it..More like she seduced him, he might have turned her down and she's got sour grapes about it and is launching a lawsuit..But yah in the future his wife should only hire old bags to work in their home.
