Singer Alanis Morissette and her rapper husband were hit with a lawsuit last Thursday for more than $130,000,  by their son's nanny, who claims that they refused to pay overtime for her after-hours with the boy and for setting harsh working conditions.

People magazine reported that Bianca Cambeiro said in court documents that Morissette and Mario "Souleye" Treadway would not allow her to take breaks or even eat during her 12-hour shifts taking care of their son three to four days a week.

The couple would lock Cambeiro in the child's bedroom and order her not to leave under any circumstances, she claims, according to TMZ. 

Cambeiro worked for the star couple from August 2011 to March 2013. She said in court documents she worked for $25 an hour. When she asked Morissette's accountant about getting paid for working after hours, the accountant said "we don't do that," the nanny claims.

E! News reported that Cambeiro wants more than $30,000 in unpaid wages due to overtime plus $100,000 for the emotional distress she says she suffered front being denied breaks during her shift. 

Morissette declined to speak on the allegations to People and E! News.

The Canadian-born Morissette hit it big with her album "Jagged Little Pill" in 1995, which sold 15 million units in the United States and another 10 million in Europe.

The lead single from the album, the angst-filled "You Oughta Know," has become her signature song throughout her career.

Morissette had been romantically linked to actor Ryan Reynolds before she married Treadway in May 2010.

Morisette and Treadway gave birth to their son, Ever, on Christmas 2011, E! News reported. 

Last week, Morissette told Jenna Bush Hager on the "Today" show that she gave birth at home with a midwife. 

"I didn’t really even imagine myself having the birth experience in the hospital," Morissette said. "My home is like my little sanctuary. It was a transcendental experience. I just went to this whole other world. I basically had to be the little soldier that I am and really focus on this new beautiful creature coming out of me."
