A source connected with Usher tells TMZ ... this is a frivolous lawsuit and all the allegations made by the former nanny are completely false.

gray-bar-update

Usher
has secretly been stiffing the nanny ... financially ... this according to a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ.

Cecilia Duncan is suing the singer, claiming Usher hired her as a part-time nanny back in December 2010 and she worked her ass off caring for his two sons (aged 4 and 5) often exceeding 40 hours per week.

According to the lawsuit, Cecilia felt like she was being overworked without being paid overtime ... and expressed her concerns to Usher in 2011 that she was being shafted.

Cecilia says Usher ignored her complaints for more than a year ... and finally fired her ass last September without paying her overtime money.

She's now suing for wrongful termination, failure to pay wages, and more -- demanding unspecified damages. Sources close to the lawsuit tell us she wants in the six-figure range.

Why continue to work if you are not being paid? If he really stiffed her Week 1, her azz would have hit the door Week 2 def no later than Week 3. Bunch of crap.

Another bogus lawsuit. If you work & don't get paid enough, you quit. Instead she continued to work more than a year without getting paid for overtime? She waited 8 - 9 months to file her lawsuit? Hmmm took her that long to find a shyster lawyer to take her case.

In the end, this is going to boil down to "HE SAY, SHE SAY"!!! Chances are the nanny didn't specify her exact "part-time" work schedule in "WRITING"!!! She should have clarified this issue immediately and reported Usher's AZZ to the "WAGE & HOUR BOARD"!!! Allowing him to impose upon her time without "ADEQUATE COMPENSATION" was just as much "HER FAULT" AS HIS!!!
