I Busted My Ass For You

You Owe Me

5/13/2013 5:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

10:00 PM PST --
A source connected with Usher tells TMZ ... this is a frivolous lawsuit and all the allegations made by the former nanny are completely false.


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.

Well, well, well..... As a nanny it's hard to know what the truth is. There are many bosses who do take advantage of their nannies. However, some nannies are so into working for celebrities that they forget themselves in the process. To all the nannies out there just remember: You are an employee and not a friend. Your ass can get fired any time and day. Celebrities are humans and therefore they will be unfair. You don't get paid within a week, put it in writing. If after the second week you still don't get paid, give a termination notice. Don't wait for years and then complain.
