    Sharon Stone Lawsuit: Former Housekeeper Alleges Actress Forced Her to Work With Bad Back

    Sharon Stone A. Ariani/ Splash News

    Sharon Stone's former housekeeper is the one serving orders this time—court orders, that is.

    Angelica Castillo filed a lawsuit against the actress today in Los Angeles County Superior Court seeking unspecified damages after alleging that Stone forced her to complete housework chores despite being put on bed rest by a doctor after suffering severe back pain.

    According to court documents obtained by E! news, Castillo—who began working for the Basic Instinct star in July 2010—was grocery shopping in June 2012, and "while loading the groceries, Plaintiff injured her back, causing her extreme and severe physical pain."

    In September of the same year, after seeking medical attention, Castillo was "instructed to undertake a brief period of bed rest," but the filing states that Stone asked her to go into work, anyway. 

    "During this time, other employees were present at the residence and could have assisted with the lifting and moving, but were not allowed to do so," the suit says, and adds that in October 2012, while still in severe pain, "Stone repeatedly yelled at Plaintiff for performing her duties more slowly, and called her 'crazy' and 'stupid.'"

    Documents also state that Castillo was fired the same day for what she believes is "retaliation for seeking medical leave."

    Sharon Stone sued for harassment and wrongful termination by nanny

    Stone's reps were not immediately available for comment.

    In May, the actress was sued for harassment and wrongful termination by a former live-in nanny who claimed Stone treated her poorly and, when she found out her employee was being paid overtime, accused her of stealing and immediately docked her pay.
