10/3/12 -- 11:25AM PST: 
Chris' lawyer, Howard King, tells TMZ, he believes the maid and her lawyer were just trying to make a splash in the media, adding, "The true facts are that Ms. Morales did not work full-time for the Cornells, was not fired by the Cornells and belatedly raises the spurious claims only after another one of her claims, for workers compensation for alleged injuries, was denied."

Chris Cornell
's wife allegedly ragged on the maid -- now the cleaning lady is trying to take him to the cleaners. 

The Soundgarden frontman and his wife Vicky hired Elia Mora to clean their house back in 2006 and everything seemed hunky dory, that is until the day after XMAS last year.  Elia finished up for the day and went home. 

According to Mora's lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- Vicky needed Elia to return to do more work, but Elia declined.  Elia claims that's when Vicky went nuts on her, berating her with a barrage of insults and then firing her.

So get this.  Elia now claims she worked 43 hours a week and never got overtime.  She also says she never got uninterrupted 30-minute lunches, and she never got uninterrupted 10-minute rest periods.

So Elia plans to clean up ... but this time in court. 

No immediate reaction from Cornell.

If Ms. Mora is an "illegal" immigrant, the Cornells could find themselves in a "VERY EMBARRASSING" predicament. Frankly, I hope she "WINS" because too many upper income types have a tendency to "RUN PEOPLE IN THE GROUND"!!! This poor woman was probably doing the work of at least "TWO" people and didn't have enough time to "CRAP" when she needed to do so!!! BEEN THERE -- DONE THAT!!!

Why do bosses think they get to insult their employees ? Vicky looks like a real b@#$ too ! Being a has-been musician's wife hardly makes her special, just who does she think she is ?

The bigger question is why would anyone need a maid for 43 hours per week?

If it that were true, It would be very disappointed at admiring someone like chris cornell for being married with that kind of woman.I mean, it's supposed that you look for someone like you .. who shares your values and principles so I can't imagine how he can share his life with her. I just hope this new were a fake. I know Cornell doesn't expect me (a fan) to admire him (totally) but it would be very sad if Chris didn't do anything to respect Elia. Anyway you never know the real story...

Those who have discrimination as argument against Elia, those sucks and probably you are that kind of people who is accostumed to treat bad to others just for not being american or whatever.
