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."

When will Celeb-tards ever learn? Those Nanny agencies and their young college-educated nannies are your downfall. Hire a Grandmother-age woman who has had a child/children of her own. Childcare is a very serious job; raising a child is not the same as titillating daddy. Celebrities and their spouses deserve exactly what is happening here when they are stupid enough to hire young eye-candy.

If Gloria Allred is involved with it, that tells you that it's a made-up case from the git-go. She takes on talentless folks who want to be famous, and Gloria concocts some pathetic victim story for them. Her face pops up regularly about every three months with some new loser "client" who wants to sue a celebrity. If Gloria had a life herself, she wouldn't need to be the publicity whore she is. The minute I see her name on something, anything, I know it's completely bogus. I imagine the general public knows the same thing. She's a sad joke. Her daughter is a smart cookie and ought to steer her mother into something credible instead of letting her continue to embarrass herself publicly.

When its all said and done, it will turn out that she wanted him to get her some gigs and make her famous. Who looks like that and wants to be a career nanny? She seemed happy to me on the Today show- smirkingher way through the interview.

Imagine if it were a man claiming Pamela Anderson sexually harrassed him. "I was her butler for 7 years and was too scared to leave."

Let me refresh everyone on one segment of Rog Lowe's life taken from Wikipedia. Maybe Rob has had a relapse!!!

Sex tape controversy

In 1988, Lowe was involved in a sex scandal over a videotape of him having sex with two females, one of whom was sixteen, in Atlanta while attending the 1988 Democratic National Convention. Lowe has asserted that he did not know that the second girl was underaged, and it was confirmed that the two had met at a bar, which the girl entered by lying about her age.

Lowe's career was damaged by the scandal, and he later entered a rehabilitation clinic for alcohol and sex addiction. Eventually, his career rebounded, and Lowe mocked his own behavior during two post-scandal appearances as host of Saturday Night Live.

Look how made up the nanny is. That should tell you right there that she is out to make an impression on Hollywood.
Pretty soon she will have her own reality show and then talk show.

Ok, maybe I'm different but a man "placed his hand inside my pants in order to touch my crotch" without my consent, he would be missing some digits, not to mention have some very sore male genitalia. But here is the kicker, if it happened the first time, I would have been out of there, love for the kids or not. If she really felt he would sexually assault her she would have left. Guess what? In Hollywood/Los Angeles/Beverly Hills, there are other nanny jobs.

Something smells fishy.

People making accusations like this should be severly punished if they can't prove them. How does one put his hand down somebody's pants without permission? Please. And that whore lawyer? come on now, this case is nothing more than a shakedown, and if they can't prove these charges, both of them should go to jail
