Rob Lowe vs. Nanny -- Who Really Lost?

4/8/2009 5:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rob LoweSo the Gloria Allred just fired off an email to us, saying our story about Rob Lowe was wrong -- you know, the case where Lowe is suing his former nanny, Laura Boyce, for allegedly violating the confidentiality agreement and defaming him.

The judge in the case just shot down Boyce's claim that the confidentiality agreement was not enforceable -- at least, that's what we said. Gloria, who reps the nanny, claims the judge merely denied her motion to throw out Lowe's lawsuit, and didn't rule on the confidentiality agreement.

But Lowe's lawyer, Larry Stein, tells us Gloria is full of it -- that her whole argument was that the case should be 86'd because the confidentiality agreement violated Boyce's First Amendment rights and was unenforceable. Stein says the judge squarely rejected Allred's challenge to the confidentiality agreement.

One thing's for sure -- someone's gonna end up cryin'....

You gotta be kidding me...    

Typical WHOREea allred. IMO, this woman is the worlds most disgusting fame whore; she'll do anything to get attention, including twisting the truth to fit her idea of how things should be. She calls it "spin doctoring"; I call it intellectual dishonesty. Another word for it is LYING. What a bitch...

Question: if Allred has the confidentiality thrown out does that mean the confidentiality with her clients doesn't mean anything? Helllloooo media whore do you want your dirty laundry aired, I think not. She drives me insane and needs to just go away.

Gloria Allred is a media whore and needs to just shut her mouth. She garners NO respect and just wants to make money. Unfortuantely now, unless the nanny gets a really good paying job, Allred won't be getting a payday off the Lowes. So sad.

Disgusting    

Are any of you nimrods capable of criticizing a female without the word bitch, whore, or ugly. What a bunch of ignorant losers.

Both lawyers in this case are unctuous. Allred did her client, and future plaintiffs, a disservice because other dumb lawyers will now think a confidentiality agreement is a blanket protection against illegal, harassing behavior. She needs to spend less time hounding Octo-Mom and holding press conferences and more time on her client.

As much as I hate Allred. I believe the nanny! Look at Rob Lowe, years ago he was taped having sex with a minor!!! That speaks volumes about ones character! If I believe correctly he also did the girls mother too! So once a slime always a complete slime! HE'S SLIMY AND SO IS HIS WIFE. SHE LOOKS LIKE ONE OF THOSE OLD HOOKERS WALKING THE STREETS! ROB HAS ALWAYS LIKED THEM YOUNG! AND HIS WIFE IS OLD AND HAGGARD! THIS NANNY IS PROBABLY VERY PRETTY! JUST SO ROB KNOWS- HE LOOKS OLD AND HAGGARD TOO! WHAT MAKES HIM THINK HE SHOULD HAVE A YOUNG GIRL? OH! I'M ROB LOWE AND I'M AN ACTOR AND I HAVE LOTS A MONEY! WELL, IF HE HAS LOTS OF MONEY, HE NEEDS TO GO BACK TO THE SAME STREETS WHERE HE PICKED UP HIS WIFE A CENTURY AGO! HEY ROB DO US ALL A FAVOR AND RETIRE!

that gloria is really one FREAK of a so called advocate..............how does this lady wake up in the morning knowing that she is simply an ambulance chacer??????????????? imagine having to be at a thanksgiving family get together with her???????????? i would break my leg and stay home. i cant stand watching her on t.v. i could not stand being 10 feet from her.

I am glad that Rob Lowe decited to spend those thousands of dollars in lawyers fees to clear his families name and what really went on..... we live in a world that everyone is looking to make a buck or get their 15 minutes of fame.

just like the housekeeper that is suing Coby Bryant..... i am waiting to see Glorias face all over that case.......

I find it funny that TMZ is constantly berating Gloria Allred's tactics. Doesn't Harvey Levin, the People's Court lawyer, own this site? Oh, the irony.

When you sign a confidentiality agreement and then break it, you can get sued.
It's so simple even a lowly kitchenmaid can understand the concept.
