Rob and Sheryl have had their share of problems with employees they’ve hired, including several court cases. Lowe filed a lawsuit against one nanny who was engaging in a scheme to hurt the couple through spreading false information, and filed another lawsuit against a nanny who was trying to express romantic interest in him while also claiming that he sexually harassed her; she also accused Sheryl of being abusive.
The third case the couple was involved in was with a former chef who reportedly engaged in sex while the couple was out of town. The chef also stole prescription drugs, broke security cameras, and started overcharging them for food. The chef made allegations that Sheryl was an unclean, cold and heartless person. In 2008, another former nanny came forward, making 12 allegations against Lowe of sexual harassment, and labor code violations. Two of the allegations were dismissed, and the later case was called for a dismissal the following year at the request of the lawyers of both parties. Based on the reports, a settlement was reached out of court.
