The Emma Watson maid immigration investigation is putting the young actress in a different light than what fans are used to seeing with the “Harry Potter” star. According to the Mirror on Friday, allegations have been made that Watsons’s housekeeper was working illegally in her London home over the course of the past year. What’s the buzz on this one?
There have been claims made that there are immigration issues regarding Emma Watson’s maid. The woman has worked for the “Harry Potter” star both in New York and in London. Now claims have surfaced that she entered London with a tourist visa. If that is the case, then she would not have been eligible to work in London.
If it is found that Watson skirted the rules regarding this housekeeper, she could face some hefty fines according to Philly.com. There is an investigation under way, but authorities say they cannot comment on individual cases. Allegations have been made that the housekeeper has traveled to London to help at Watson’s home several times.
Reports indicate that she had been stopped by immigration staff once who asked how she paid for the trip, seeming raising some red flags now. Claims have been made that she spent about three months in London between September 2013 and February 2014 working as Emma Watson’s maid. Immigration snafus regarding housekeepers, nannies and the like have tripped up many both the U.S. and the U.K. in the past, though this situation does seem fairly minor in comparison to most other incidents in the headlines.
Will Emma Watson’s maid’s immigration issues end up costing her a pretty penny? There are ways she could demonstrate she shouldn’t be held responsible for the issue, but it doesn’t sound as if the investigation has progressed far enough for her to worry about things that much yet. Curious fans will have to stay tuned for further details.
