Kobe countersues housekeeper

Kobe Bryant and his wife are accusing their former housekeeper of violating her contract by talking to the media about the familys private affairs after suing them for allegedly harassing and humiliating her, the Associated Press reported.

The countersuit filed Friday in Orange County Superior Court says Maria Jimenez violated a confidentiality agreement she signed when she came to work for the Los Angeles Lakers star and his wife.

The court filing calls Jimenezs allegations that she was denied health insurance and was forced to quit because of intolerable working conditions specious and frivolous.

The Bryants attorney Jon G. Daryanani said he did not have any further comment on the suit.
