Kathy Hilton’s Former Housekeeper Drops Lawsuit Over Alleged Unpaid Wages!

Kathy Hilton will not have to face off in court with her former housekeeper after the ex-employee decided to drop her lawsuit. 

According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, Isabel Reina Gonzalez Hernandez has informed the court she is dismissing all claims against the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and her real estate tycoon husband Rick Hilton.

Back in July 2019, Hernandez sued the couple for allegedly failing to pay her overtime, not providing her proper meal breaks, and unfair business practices.

Hernandez said she was hired to be a live-in housekeeper for the Hilton family.

Her suit read, “The suit, “DEFENDANTS failed to provide PLAINTIFF with a second meal period or any rest periods as required by law; DEFENDANTS willfully failed to pay PLAINTIFF all wages due after PLAINTIFF’S separation from DEFENDANTS’ employment; and, DEFENDANTS knowingly and intentionally failed to provide PLAINTIFF with accurate wage statements.”

She was suing to seek in excess of $25,000. Meanwhile, Kathy and Rick denied all allegations they failed to provide their housekeeper with the proper meal breaks or that they screwed her out of overtime pay.

They said if the court found they did owe their former employee any money,, it should be offset by “Plaintiffs theft of items from Defendants' home.”

Not only did they deny owing Hernandez overtime pay or that they didn't follow California law. Kathy said the claims were absurd and accused the former employee of stealing from her.

Kathy’s lawyer wrote, “Defendants are informed and believe, and based thereon allege, that Defendants are entitled to a complete and/or partial offset against each and every cause of action alleged in the Complaint in an amount to be established at trial, based in part or in whole on Plaintiff's theft of items from Defendants' home.”

According to court records via Radar Online, Kathy claimed Hernandez was paid all income, compensation, and wages to which she was entitled.
