LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Sharon Stone has counter-sued her Filipina former nanny, who is pursuing the actress for wrongful dismissal and harassment including racist abuse.

In a breach-of-loan-agreement action filed in Los Angeles Superior Court this week, the “Basic Instinct” star says Erlinda Elemen owes $9,500 of a $12,500 loan she made to her in 2010.

Elemen, who worked as a live-in nanny for Stone until she was sacked in 2011, repaid $3,000 between Aug 2010 and Jan 2011, but then stopped repayments to the 55-yr-old actress. Her lawyers announced last year that she was suing the actress. A judge has ruled that the former nanny had provided enough evidence to support her charges of harassment, failure to prevent harassment, retaliation and wrongful dismissal.
