Report: Emma Watson Under Investigation for Illegal Housekeeper

Posted Tuesday July 1, 2014 2:03 PM GMT

Possibly getting involved in some shady business, Emma Watson is at the center of an investigation surrounding her American housekeeper.

According to the Independent, the “Harry Potter” actress reportedly hired the worker illegally in the UK to clean her two million pound home. The issue is the housekeeper allegedly held a tourist visa, which would ban her from earning an income overseas.

The publication states that the cleaning lady worked for the “Noah” star in New York at the start of 2013 and traveled to London to work at Emma’s home in the UK from September 2013 to February 2014.

Apparently, questions were raised when the housekeeper was stopped by UK immigration and asked how she was paying for her stay in Britain.

Emma’s camp has not commented, but if she’s charged in the case she could face fines up to $17,000.
