Allegedly Assaults Nanny
… Calls BS On Accuser
less than a minute ago BY TMZ STAFF
Nashville Predators star Mike Ribeiro is being sued by his former nanny — who claims the NHL star assaulted her back in 2012 … but Ribeiro says she’s making the whole thing up.
In the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Sports, Ribeiro’s accuser doesn’t go into detail about the alleged incident … only claiming she suffered unspecified injuries at the hands of the 35-year-old All-Star.
The woman also claims … after the alleged incident, Mike’s wife verbally attacked her. She’s suing both Mike and his wife for more than $1 MILLION.
But the Riberios say the whole thing is BS — with their lawyer telling TMZ Sports, “My clients strongly deny these allegations.”
“We will defend the lawsuit fully. We anticipate the true facts will come out in due course.”
