In response to her allegations, which include claims of wrongful termination and violations of California labor laws, Jason and Olivia have filed legal documents requesting that the case be moved to a private arbitrator in New York, arguing that it should never have been filed in a California court.


The ex-couple told TMZ, “It is unfortunate that this private matter continues to play out in the press. Our focus has been and will continue steadfastly protecting our family in the face of harassment. We are confident that the evidence brought forward will affirm our position to dismiss this case and bring our family peace summarily.”

The nanny had previously sued Jason and Olivia in February, alleging that they had overloaded her with extra duties and that she had been wrongfully terminated. In addition, she claimed that she had been driven to take a break from work due to stress and anxiety, which she attributed partly to Jason venting to her about Olivia and Harry Styles, whom Olivia was dating.


Jason and Olivia, however, argue that Genaro was well taken care of by the family and that she was generously compensated, with her salary even being doubled at the end of 2020. They also claim that Genaro broke her contract by speaking to the media and threatening their family.


Furthermore, Jason and Olivia say that Genaro resigned from her position and wasn’t fired and that they even footed the bill for her and her dog to stay at the Rosewood Hotel in London for several weeks after she had resigned.

They also reimbursed her for $17,000 of travel expenses from London to the U.S. To top it all off, Jason and Olivia say that Genaro has a criminal record, which they claim they were unaware of when they hired her, as she had purported to have a clean background.
