Jessica Gibson, one of the ex-employees making sordid allegations against Rob Lowe and his wife, is in this lawsuit to win it.

According to TMZ, Gibson - a former nanny of Lowe's who claims she had an affair with the actor - has hired celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred to represent her. Lowe has claimed that Gibson tried to extort him to the tune of $1.5 million in exchange for keeping quiet about their affair.

Rob Lowe is known to movie fans for Thank You For Smoking and televisions fans for The West Wing.

While Gibson and two other former employees demand money from Lowe, he's countered with a suit that says he's the victim of an extortion plot and that the three employees have engaged in a variety of misdeeds, including sex on his bed while he and his wife were gone.

Oddly, none of the employees are Lindsay Lohan.

We'll keep you posted on this strange story as it develops.
