A former nanny for Rob Lowe claims she was sexually abused by the actor.

Jessica Gibson says in legal papers filed Monday in Santa Barbara, Calif., that Lowe touched her inappropriately several times between September 2005 and January 2008.

Gibson worked on and off for the 44-year-old actor and his wife for seven years before quitting in February. Gibson claims she thought conditions would get better.

Lowe has sued three ex-employees, including Gibson. He claims Gibson demanded $1.5 million to remain silent.

His attorney says Gibson's allegations are outrageous and untrue.
