The nanny who decapitated a child in her care
Gulchekhra Bobokulova, a 38-year-old nanny from Uzbekistan, said that Allah had told her to decapitate a four-year-old child that was in her care.
Bobokulova is accused of murdering the girl before carrying her severed head outside Moscow Metro station. She claims she “took revenge against those who spilled blood” in Syria in a YouTube video uploaded immediately after the murder. “Putin spilled blood, planes carried out bombings. Why are Muslims being killed? They also want to live,” Bobokulova said, speaking very matter-of-factly.
The father of the murdered girl, named Nastya, says Bobokulova had never worked as a nanny before he hired her. He also said he did not recall her ever being devoutly religious and claimed his daughter was frightened by her.
Prosecutors believe that the people who incited her to carry out the slaying are still at large. (Source)
The celebrity whose husband fired the nanny after she sent him a racy text message
Actress Eva Amurri Martino, daughter of Susan Sarandon, wrote about a bizarre incident involving her nanny for her blog, Happily Eva After.
While was traveling for work, her husband, Kyle, a retired soccer player and current host of “36 Hours” on the Travel Channel, received a bizarre text from the nanny. It read: “OMG. Girl did I mention to you how hot and (sexy) my Boss is. I would love to (sleep with him) ha haha. Too bad he seems not to like thick Latin women with lots to hold on to LOL.”
Martino expected a “sorry, that wasn’t meant for you, I’m so embarrassed” text to follow. None came. He took the couple’s daughter, 18-month-old Marlowe, to breakfast, and when he returned home, saw the nanny peeking out at the street from the couple’s bedroom.
Martino confronted the nanny while taping the conversation on his iPhone. When asked why she was in his bedroom, her explanation was, “I was looking for you.” When confronted with the text message, she said, “I’m sorry I was just messing around with a friend, I didn’t mean any harm.”
The damage was done. Martino let the nanny go, telling her, “It’s not the type of environment I want in the house with you taking care of our daughter.” Amurri Martino called her husband a “LEGEND” for his handling of the situation. Instead of hiring yet another nanny, the couple has decided to bring their daughter on and upcoming work trip.
Amurri Martino is not only person who has suffered the curse of the celebrity nanny:
• Ben Affleck apparently fooled around with nanny Christine Ouzounian on his actress wife Jennifer Garner. He’s denied the affair, yet there’s plenty of pics with him and Ouzounian in public.
• Gavin Rossdale, ex-husband of Gwen Stefani, reportedly had a three-year affair with their Australian nanny Mindy Mann.
• Actor Ethan Hawke is said to cheated on his wife Uma Thurman with the nanny Ryan Shawhughes in 2004. Not true Hawke claimed, although he ended up making Shawhughes his better half in 2008. (Source 1 | Source 2 | Photo)
The nanny who murdered two children in her care because she was angry at their parents for asking her to clean the house
In October 2012, a nanny killed two children she was caring for in their Manhattan home.
Yoselyn Ortega, 53, tried to kill herself after stabbing six-year-old Lucia Krim and her little brother Leo, two. Mom Marina Krim found her lying next to the children, who had each been fatally stabbed multiple times, after having attempted to slit her throat.
Ortega later told authorities that she hurt the children because of money problems and said she was angry at the parents for asking her to clean the house. She has pleaded not guilty, and an attorney says she has no memory of the attacks. A trial date has yet to be set. (Source)

The girl’s mom, who wishes to remain anonymous, reviewed the nanny cam footage of 31-year-old Lidia Quilligana “hitting my daughter, force-feeding her something and then pushing my daughter’s hands on the stove burner to burn her,” she said in a statement to police.

Hui Zhang, 34, claimed she acted in self-defense when the parents of the dead infant allegedly attacked her and her boyfriend, Te Lu, with a butcher knife. The couple decided to offer the child’s parents money in an attempt to silence them about the boy’s death, but when the parents learned about it, a fight erupted.
