Emma Watson Under Investigation for Paying U.S. Housekeeper While in The U.K.

Immigration officials are investigating claims that an American housekeeper employed by Emma Watson worked illegally at the actress' London home.

Reports suggest the maid may have worked at Watson's London home while she held a tourist visa. Tourist visas bar foreign citizens from working in the UK.

The housekeeper, who started working for Emma in New York last year, was stopped by immigration staff, who asked how she intended to fund her stay in Britain, according to the Mail.

Prior to her time in London, Watson had been living in the United States while she studied at Brown University.

Border officials started the investigation after receiving a complaint that the maid was paid to help the actress at her Islington home, and subsequently made trips to London.

Following the incident, UK Visas and Immigration have now launched a probe after receiving a complaint that she frequently travelled to London on and off and was paid to help the actress at her Islington home.

The former child star could face up to $17,000 in fines if authorities discover that her housekeeper was employed without proper work permits. She has yet to comment on the allegations.

And while the Home Office cannot comment on individual cases, an insider at the department said: "An allegation has been received and processed and has been allocated for further action."

Having graduated last month, the actress is now thought to be based in London, and is set to attend the Prime Minister David Cameron’s ‘Cool Britannia’ party at Downing Street on June 30th, according to a report by Express.

According to the newspaper, it is alleged that the maid spent three months in Britain between September 2013 and February 2014.

Watson recently completed shooting Alejandro Amenabar's forthcoming thriller 'Regression', about a father accused of a crime he has no memory of committing. It co-stars Ethan Hawke.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
