Witness: Simons were happy about nanny's pregnancy

August 23, 2011

A household employee of Indiana Pacers owner Herb Simon and his wife said they were happy when they learned their nanny was pregnant, even though the nanny claims she was fired over the pregnancy.

Lorena Perez testified Tuesday in the wrongful dismissal lawsuit of the couple's former nanny, Claudia Leite. Perez, who now cares for the couple's children, said she recalled Simon's wife, Bui, gave her pregnancy clothes for Leite.

Leite claims she was fired because she became pregnant. She and a chauffeur are suing the Simons for back pay and damages in the six figures.

Herb Simon co-founded the Indiana-based shopping mall company Simon Property Group Inc.. Forbes says he has a net worth of $1.4 billion.

The couple claims Leite was fired over her violent background.
