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.

FOLKS, None OF US WAS IN OR AROUND THAT HOUSE TO KNOW WHO DID OR SAID WHAT..

And all too often, employers Rich and Famous or Not are targeted by people. And yes, sometime it is the other way around. But as I said, we were not there. And this maid, sounds like a real piece of work herself with her very detailed description as to what was said and by who.

I tell you people, sometime just employing someone, you can become a "MARK.".

Before we jump to conclusions. Don't you think there's a slight possibility that this maid is just trying to make some easy money by fabricating facts?
If I were a maid making low wages, and I'm working for Kobe, I would be tempted to create a story with detail. I would rehearse it several times so I could keep the facts straight in court.

I would think that most superstars or most elites would be really careful with how they handle their employees. If I'm sitting on a hundred million dollars, I know I have a big bulls eye in my back. I would take all precautions needed to avoid a needles lawsuit. Kobe had to learn to be careful, after he went through that rape trial.

Yeah, Vanessa is nuts: She knows damn well Kobe married her only to keep her parents from sending him to jail, as she was an 'underage' over-slut when he first had sex with her.

I have a friend that is fully 'kept' by Kobe, on the side, and has been for years. Can you blame him? He married a loony.
