Kobe's Maid Sues -- It Was the Crappiest Job Ever

3/25/2009 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kobe & VanessaKobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa are being sued by their former housekeeper, who claims Vanessa was incredibly abusive -- even demanding that she put her hand in a bag of dog feces to retrieve a tag from her blouse ... so Vanessa could deduct the cost of the blouse from the maid's salary!

Maria Jimenez claims Vanessa called her "lazy, slow, dumb, a f---ing liar, and f---ing sh-t."

In the lawsuit filed in Superior Court in Orange County, Jimenez claims Vanessa accused her of stealing her (mouth) retainer.

Jimenez says it got so bad -- Vanessa allegedly "badgered, harassed and humiliated Maria by yelling and screaming at Maria and criticizing her in front of Kobe, the Bryants' children, employees and other people in the household" -- she threatened to quit but Kobe talked her out of it.

The final straw: Vanessa went nuclear because Maria put an expensive blouse in the washer. Vanessa demanded that Maria put her hand in a bag of dog feces to retrieve the price tag for the blouse.

Maria says she wanted to quit and Vanessa responded that she "had to work until payday to pay for the $690 blouse, which she did."

Maria is suing for wrongful discharge, invasion of privacy and emotional distress and unpaid wages.

Anyone who marries an NBA star is a cold-hearted gold-digging unbelievable bitch on wheels. There is no love in a relationship like that where they guy is off f*cking literally millions of women every night and she knows it but is only in it for the money anyway. The situation obviously attracts the nastiest and most vile bitches on the planet.

I totally believe this story. My friend worked at a Disneyland restaurant when Vanessa came in. When the waitor brought over her soup they warned her that it was very hot since she had her kid sitting on her lap. Sure enough, a little while later the kid put his hand in the soup when she wasn't paying attention and began crying immediately. She called over the waitor and demanded he put his hand in the soup to see that it was too hot. he replyed with "i'm sorry ma'am, i'm not putting my hand in your soup" She started screaming and yelling for his manager saying "Somebody's going to put their hand in this soup!!" She's crazy.

If this story is true, it was good the maid got out and didn't buy into the madness just because those two (well, Kobe anyway) is famous. But, how in the world did tag for a blouse get into the dog poo?????? Instead of working off the shirt, she should have apologized and quit then. Why do that to yourself? I will pray the maid finds a better job. And I almost hope she does win a lawsuit against that woman.

That explains things!    

If ANY of the accusations are true...Heaven help those children of theirs! That lifestyle and hubby of hers must be a biatch to deal with! Maybe he speaks to her in some of those 9 foreign languages that he speaks and she doesn't understand when he's telling her, 'bitch! the ONLY reason we're together is becuz it's cheaper to keep you!'

That's rich! Vanessa is nothing but a glorified maid herself. Why is she tormenting Jimenez when she is her aunt. I guess she thinks she is better than other Mexicans.
