Jessica Gibson Accuses Rob Lowe of Sexual Battery

by at .  Updated at .

Former Rob Lowe nanny Jessica Gibson appeared on the Today show this morning. Through her fame-whore lawyer, Gloria Allred, Gibson accused the actor of sexual battery, along with a number of other acts.

Gibson said she never blackmailed Lowe to the tune of $1.5 million (as he claims) and never called the police to report the alleged battery during her seven-year stint with the Lowes because she "loved the children, and I needed the job."

According to Jessica Gibson's lawsuit, Rob Lowe repeatedly exposed himself and inappropriately touched himself and his former nanny.

The documents go on to say Lowe "placed his hand inside Gibson's pants."

How will this case play out? It's hard to say, states Patrick Fraioli, an L.A. employment attorney, given the nature of the charges.

"This is a classic he said/she said dispute," said Fraioli.

"If Rob Lowe is without fault, he's got reason to fight to the bitter end â€" but in a trial, both sides will likely be dragged through the mud."

Rob Lowe is smiling now. But Jessica Gibson's accusations are no laughing matter.
