Emma Watson in trouble over 'illegal' housekeeper

2014-06-30 16:00

Los Angeles - Emma Watson has allegedly been employing an illegal housekeeper.

The Harry Potter star hired the maid to work in her New York apartment at the beginning of last year but Border Agency staff have since launched a probe following a complaint that the woman was travelling to London on and off to help Emma, 24, in her Islington home.

It is believed that the housekeeper spent a total of three months in Britain between September last year until early February and was quizzed on arrival by immigration staff about her ability to pay for her stay.

Although the home office can't comment on individual cases a source from the department told The Mirror newspaper: "An allegation has been received and processed and has been allocated for further action."

Meanwhile, Emma recently graduated from the prestigious Brown University in the United States.

The Bling Ring actress, who enrolled at the Ivy League school in 2009, received her English literature degree at a commencement ceremony on the main campus in Providence, Rhode Island, last month.

She has previously praised her classmates for giving her an opportunity to experience life away from the spotlight.

She said: "I've never even been asked for an autograph on campus. I threw a party for nearly 100 students and not a single person put a photo on Facebook."
