Celebrity nanny scandals – why the rich and famous are forever running into very public problems with the people they pay to mind their kids

It is a truth universally acknowledged that parents in possession of A-list stardom must be in want of a nanny. Nobody rich does their own child rearing — they’re too busy curating their brand. Yet the nanny, even within non-famous families, remains one of the trickiest roles, both for the nanny and for the employer — she (because the nanny is almost always a she) is simultaneously less than a family member but more than an employee, navigating a blurred line between intimacy and distance. And this boundary is entirely invisible to children.

he nanny dynamic fascinates the rest of us, who regard the nanny as a kind of human periscope into lives closeted by wealth and power, so that when it goes wrong, we get whiplash from rubbernecking. And it does go wrong. This going-wrong tends to involve two possible scenarios: the male employer has sex with the nanny, or the nanny blabs about the family to the media. In most — but not all — cases, the nanny loses her job. What is less spoken about is that the children lose their nanny, but we’ll come back to that.
