Rob Lowe's Extortionist Babysitter

Rob Lowe is steaming mad. The actor says that an ex-employee of his is trying to extort money from his family, by threatening to spill some nasty (and false) secrets about him and his wife. Rob says the former family babysitter is demanding $1.5 million from the actor and his wife "or she will accuse us both of a vicious laundry list of false terribles."

In an article from The Huffington Post, Rob warns the unnamed woman -- and anyone else who's thinking about taking him on -- that he won't stand for their antics. "My family is devastated at this betrayal; this woman worked in our home and traveled with us off and on for seven years, without complaint," he says. "It is an attempt to damage and humiliate not only my wife and me, but our two young sons as well. No one intimidates my family."

Nice! You go, Rob. Kinda sexy.
