Emma Watson has come under fire after new reports suggest that the actress may have illegally employed her maid to work in the U.K.
According to the Independent, British Immigration officials are investigating claims that the Harry Potter star's housekeeper may have been working unlawfully at the 24-year-old star's nearly $3.5 million London home.
The Bling Ring beauty allegedly brought her American maid to the U.K. on a tourist visa, which prohibits any foreign citizen from working in the U.K., although Watson's housekeeper was believed to be employed overseas from September 2013 to the beginning of February 2014.
Prior to her time in London, Watson had been living in the United States while she studied at Brown University.
Watson's housekeeper, who reportedly began working for the actress at her New York apartment in early 2013, was reportedly stopped by British Immigration officials, who questioned how the U.S.-native planned to fund her stay in Britain. Border Agency officials are said to have begun investigating the case after they received a complaint that the maid had been employed by Watson in the U.K. for a three-month period.
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 reports E News.
We hope Watson can beat this or that it can be proven that her maid was in Britain legally.
