The action "contains false allegations" and wrongly attacks Lowe's wife, the attorney says
Rob Lowe’s lawyer Larry Stein issued a statement Wednesday denouncing the lawsuit filed by nanny Laura Boyce. Stein also lashed out at Boyce’s attorney Gloria Allred, who also represents Jessica Gibson, the other nanny accusing the actor and his wife:
“Having struck out against Rob Lowe, Gloria Allred now seeks to drag his wife and children into the fray. In response to a lawsuit against Laura Boyce by the Lowes, Ms. Allred filed a cross-complaint on behalf of Boyce, which contains false allegations, in an apparent attempt to divert the negative publicity which Allred’s client, Gibson, has universally received.
“Although framed as a sexual harassment claim against both Sheryl and Rob Lowe, the cross-complaint alleges only words by Sheryl and never mentions any words or conduct by Rob whatsoever.
“The alleged statements by Sheryl are totally unrelated to, and do not provide any support for, Gibson’s claims against Rob.”
