Mariah Carey has been hit with a lawsuit by her former nanny who accuses her of being jealous and consistently overworking her employees.

According to celebrity news site theybf.com the lawsuit was filed in Manhattan Federal Court today where Simonette Da Costa says the singer forced her to work 100-hours a week (while denying her any overtime pay), then fired her “for expressing too much affection for their children.”

Simonette's lawyer Eli Freedberg claims:

"She was on call 24 hours a day. She was always at their (Mariah and Nick's) beck and call. Plaintiff was on duty during all hours of each 24 hour day with no entitlement for breaks, for meals, and even for sleep. Indeed, Ms. Carey would often call plaintiff at hours in the middle of the night and demand to be taken to her children or to be updated on the status of her children.”

The site reports that this is the second lawsuit Mariah is facing from a former employee. Former staffer Yiser Oliver has accused the diva of skipping out on overtime pay for seven years!
