Nanny to De Niro:

Pay Up, Focker!

4/3/2009 8:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Robert De NiroRobert De Niro's former nanny is raging pissed -- claiming the actor stiffed her out of $40k in overtime pay and then fired her.

The nanny claims she racked up 750 hours of O.T. in just ten months of work for Robert and his wife back in 2006, and when she threatened to quit -- De Niro pulled the trigger first.

Now the nanny has filed a lawsuit in Manhattan's state Supreme Court, in which she also claims she never got her 10 days of vacation.

No comment from De Niro's people yet.

If these morons would raise their own damn kids, there would be no nanny suits. I'll bet she has a case, though. The Hollywood elite shove their kids off on people they don't even know and expect them to perform miracles.

You go, Nanny! There is something to be said for RAISING YOUR OWN KIDS!

Mercy Midnight and Angel ---I think you too nailed it...
After so much success and wealth people do feel a sense of entitlement and are more and likely to treat others badly.
I've seen people who had money who weren't famous treat their employees like crap.

If this is true, Deniro should pay and give her pay for her troubles. Even though she probably made good money working for him she would nowhere near be able to afford a legal team like him. If he knows this to be true, he needs to just pay. And not fight her.

Angel good for you for handling your situation the way you did. I feel sorry for the children. As far as DeNiro goes, he is a pig.

The nanny is probably full of it. De niro probably wasnt even around the house half the time and I never heard of a nanny getting paid for vacation. Seems alot of this is happening lately. People wanting to sue because the person is wealthy or as celebrity.
