Los Angeles - Sharon Stone is being sued by a former nanny who claims the Oscar-nominated actress insulted her Filipino heritage and fired her after discovering she had been paid overtime.

Erlinda T Elemen sued seeking unspecified damages on Wednesday, 15 months after she was fired. The lawsuit states that Elemen worked for Stone for more than four years and was promoted to head nanny, but was fired after the actress demanded she return overtime payments.

Elemen's complaint states Stone's accountants made the payments because the nanny worked on vacations and holidays, but Stone did not approve. She claims the actress insulted her accent and denigrated her religious beliefs.

Stone's publicist Paul Bloch wrote in a statement that Elemen is a disgruntled former employee and called her claims absurd and fabricated.
