    Yes folks the Pacers have made it to TMZ

    NBA Owner Accused of Screwing Pregnant Nanny

    Posted Mar 11th 2010 12:10AM by TMZ Staff

    The dude who owns the Indiana Pacers basketball team is being sued by his former nanny -- after she got the chop ... when she was ready to pop.


    In a lawsuit filed yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court, Herb Simon and his Thai supermodel wife Bui are accused of firing Claudia Leite after she told her bosses she was knocked up last month.

    In the suit, Leite claims the family "feared" that she would want to take a "brief or limited medical leave of absence" around the time the baby was due -- and according to Leite, that wasn't gonna cut it.

    But the nanny isn't going after the Simon's alone -- the family's former driver
    is also suing the couple, claiming they kicked him to the curb when the guy became "disabled with severe infections."

    Both the nanny and the driver claim the Simons also screwed them out of several paychecks -- they're both asking for an unspecified amount of cash.

    We called, but we're unable to reach Simon's rep for comment.

    Former nanny? I didn't know they had nannies back then.

    Seriously though, two charges by separate people is not a good sign.

    It's the grade inflation times we live in. Any woman who ever posed for a family photo is deemed a "model". Anyone who ever was paid to model for a photo is deemed a "supermodel". And all stars have been upgraded to "superstars".

    I've heard that a lawyer could actually argue that they were not fired because they were pregnant or sick, but that they could not fulfill the job responsibilities/requirements... I'm not sure I agree with that kind of logic (seems circular)...

    This will all be settled long before court at a fraction of the cost and we'll never hear about this again (as per settlement agreements).

    The thing that bothers me the most about this article is that TMZ uses too many "buzz" words and slang in their print articles. This is why I dislike them the most.

    TMZ is just a sign of the times. In our quick to judge / tabloid mentality that craves fresh news whether it's true or not. This type of garbage is now the norm and I don't see it changing. Regardless when is the sun going to shine on this franchise. This kind of press is still bad for the team.

    I watched the Kings vs Toronto last night and there is no doubt Tyrke Evans is a stud. I just kept thinking that is the kind of player we need, but that is for antoher thread I guess.

    I've never understood the "trophy wife" term. I've got a trophy wife! She's a beautiful 5'9" European import who makes way more money than me. Now that's what I call a trophy.

    If you're just rich and you buy a cute girl, that's kind of like going to the store and buying a trophy. Which makes you, well, kind of creepy.

    That's pretty much what it is though they're there for image purposes and to look and dress the part but everyone knows if you weren't rich etc they wouldn't be married to you.

    On March 11th, 2010, It was reported by TMZ.com that Bui and her Husband Herbert Simon (President of Simon Property Group and owner of the Indiana Pacers) were each named as defendants in a Civil Lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court by a former Nanny and Driver.

    On March 23rd, 2010, it was reported by WTHR TV 13 in Indianapolis, Indiana that a second former nanny has filed a law suit against both Herb and Bui Simon, alleging she's owned over a half million dollars in back pay. All three suites filed in Los Angeles Superior Court allege that the Simons engage in practices that are in direct violation of the California labor code.

    April 4th, 2010, it was reported by WTHR in Indianapolis, Indiana that Bui Simon and her Husband, Indiana Pacer's owner Herb Simon are facing yet another lawsuit (the fourth in less than one month) in Los Angeles Superior Court from a fourth former employee. This time, a former house manager accuses Bui Simon and her husband of firing her for refusing to pay an undocumented worker in cash, and under the table. The lawsuit claims a supervisor instructed the employee to withdraw cash from a Simon account every week, put $200 in an envelope then hand it to an undocumented immigrant worker as his weekly pay. The plaintiff's attorney explained, "This was all designed to conceal from local and state authorities the existence of this undocumented worker." After objecting repeatedly, the suit says the employee was fired and ordered to write a letter of resignation.
