Emma Watson Investigated for Illegally Employing Housekeeper in UK

Hermione’s magic wand won’t be able to fix this one! Emma Watson has come under fire for illegally employing a housekeeper without the proper documentation. The Harry Potter and Noah star is being investigated for paying her American housekeeper to work in the UK from September 2013 – February 2014, despite the fact that the housekeeper was in the UK on a tourist visa. I’ve had many tourist visas before, and not that I would want to work, but it’s a bit of a no-no in the glamorous world of international travel.

If found guilty, Emma could pay around $17,000 in fines for this charge. This is roughly the equivalent of a parking ticket for the 24-year-old megastar, whose net worth is estimated at $60 million.

Darlings, I have Emma’s back on this one. It is just so hard to find good help, and when you do you hold on to it! Just next time fill out the proper paperwork, love, to avoid those pesky fines.

    It surely must be a misunderstanding or something that she couldn’t find out, also because her parents are both lawyers and you can’t much deceive a lawyer when it comes to documentation, and that’s a reason more for her to be confident in this case: she’s got her back fully covered. And besides, I don’t see how that’s a scoop, I mean, it’s a fine that a lot of people risk to get these days and if it wasn’t an expedient to try and put a shade on her normally very quiet life it would be no news!
