Well this is interesting. Way more interesting than the nuts and bolts of the TMZ story make it seem.
The basic story is that Carlton’s longtime nanny who filed as Jane Doe to avoid publicity, claims that Gebbia has been physically, verbally and abusive to her and she is taking her to civil court. The nanny played many roles in the household. She took care of the kids, cleaned the house, cooked, chauffeured the kids, did the grocery shopping–and was Carlton’s person assistant.
So if things were so rough for the nanny, why did she stick around for six long years? Well, if you recall when Carlton was on the show, there was a lot of chatter about her having an intimate relationship with the nanny. She brought her as her plus one to NYC for WWHL. She also sent the kids to Grandma’s house during her lesbian “Eyes Wide Shut” party and the nanny stuck around for it. That is what initially got um, tongues a wagging…so to speak.
The nanny is now claiming that four months ago, Gebbia as drunk and attacked her. This was apparently the straw that broke the camel’s back. The attack she claims was provoked when she called Carlton’s husband to tell him that Carlton was bashing in the TV with a baseball bat. Apparently, Carlton knocked her to the floor and shoved her into a door in a drunken rage.
Carlton has had several public drunken situations in the tabloids. There was this one in 2014 and this one in 2016. Carlton’s husband had recently separated from her just before the 2016 incident. He officially filed for divorce at the end of last month. They have three kids, Destiney, Mysteri, and Cross. Sigh. David was also a constant presence in the house during their separation so that he could watch over the children.
The nanny says that over the years, Carlton was a danger to herself and at one point threw herself off a second story balcony.
The nanny claims she was badly injured in the most recent attack by Carlton. She was given two weeks off and then fired the following month. She is suing for monetary damages that were not disclosed.
If it is in fact true that the nanny did have an intimate relationship with Carlton, this will be two longterm breakups in a matter of months. It was also insinuated that the nanny and the husband were quite close as well and the relationship was somewhat of an open triangle at times. If so, these court transcripts may well be worth purchasing.
Let’s hope that Carlton gets the help she needs and that he kids are sheltered from the fallout and kept safe.
