Sharon Stone is countersuing her former nanny over allegations she owes the actress almost $10,000 (£6,250). Erlinda Elemen filed a wrongful dismissal suit against the Basic Instinct star last year (May12), accusing Stone of insulting her Filipino heritage and religious beliefs before allegedly firing her back in February 2011. Stone previously blasted Elemen's claims and branded the case "frivolous" - and now she is hitting back with her own lawsuit. In her complaint, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the Hollywood star maintains her ex-employee borrowed $12,500 (£7,800) from her in 2010 but only paid back $3,000 (£1,870). According to TMZ.com, Stone is suing for the remaining $9,500 (£5,900), as well as interest. It's not the only legal battle Stone has brewing with domestic staff - a former maid sued the 55 year old last month (Mar13), claiming she was dismissed because she refused to do any heavy lifting after hurting her back.
