Rob Lowe has settled his legal battle with one former nanny, Jessica Gibson, after a year-long scuffle that included charges of blackmail and sexual harassment, People.com reports. Both sides have reportedly requested that their respective lawsuits be dismissed, according to court records. Lawyers for both sides declined to comment to People, so it’s not known if a financial settlement was involved.
In April 2008, Lowe sued Gibson in Santa Barbara Superior Court, alleging that she was attempting to blackmail him for $1.5 million. Days later, Gibson, who had worked for Lowe for seven years, filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Lowe and his wife, and claimed that the actor had exposed himself to her and had groped her. Lowe, 45, has consistently and adamantly denied the charges.
