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.
