Ex-nanny countersues Rob Lowe, wife in LA

A former nanny has countersued Rob Lowe and his wife for sexual harassment.

The suit filed Wednesday in Los Angeles alleges that Lowe's wife, Sheryl, walked around naked in front of nanny Laura Boyce and made repeated crude comments about her boyfriend's genitals. It doesn't make any sex allegations against the actor.

Sheryl Lowe's attorney, Lawrence Stein, says the allegations are false.

Boyce also claims she was wrongfully fired and is owed money. She's one of three ex-employees the Lowes sued last month, claiming they spread lies about the couple and broke confidentiality agreements.

One of those sued, former nanny Jessica Gibson, also has countersued, claiming Rob Lowe sexually harassed her.
