Halsey says that their former nanny’s claims of wrongful termination are “baseless.”
In documents filed in Los Angeles court Thursday (June 9th), Ashley Funches alleges that in 2021 she began working as a live-in nanny for the singer’s newborn, Ender. Funches claims she was “misclassified” as an employee “exempt from overtime” and was terminated after she requested a leave of absence for a medical procedure.
In a statement to E! News, Halsey’s rep called the allegations in the lawsuit “baseless” and added that Funches was terminated for leaving Ender unsupervised and in an unsafe location. The singer’s attorney also claims the nanny was “intoxicated while the child was in her care.”
