Rob Lowe's Former Nanny Sobs Through Press Conference

May 01, 2008 | 1:22pm EDT

Rob Lowe's former nanny broke down in tears as she faced the press on Thursday, a day after filing a countersuit against the actor and his wife.

During a press conference about her new sexual harassment allegations against the actor's wife Sheryl, a trembling Laura Boyce sobbed as she explained she felt "betrayed" and "hurt" after the Lowes named her in a recent extortion suit.

Joined by her lawyer Gloria Allred, the nanny told the press, "I am extremely upset that they would sue me after I endured what I did in their household.

"I never did anything to them other than give them my best efforts for their children."

Boyce, who worked for the Lowe family last year, has accused Sheryl Lowe of creating an "extremely sexually offensive and hostile work environment," claiming her boss quizzed her about the size of her boyfriend's penis and regularly paraded around the family home naked.

Rob Lowe and his wife filed lawsuits against Boyce and two other ex-employees on April 7 after claiming they're the victims of an attempted extortion scheme, led by another former nanny, Jessica Gibson.

Gibson has since filed a sexual harassment suit against the actor, claiming he touched her inappropriately and exposed his penis to her.

The Lowes vehemently deny all accusations leveled at them. A deposition of the actor and his wife has been scheduled for May 19.
