The Grammy-nominated artist was spotted in the Big Apple as she faces a lawsuit alleging her disability discrimination and retaliation from ex-nanny Ashley Funches, according to a report by The Blast, which reviewed court documents on the case.

Funches said in legal documents that Halsey broke the law when she terminated her employment after taking time off following a medical emergency.

Funches said she was hired by the singer and her company Halsey Music last year for the position of “resident personal attendant for their newborn child” after Halsey and boyfriend Alev Aydin welcomed their son Ender in July 2021.

Funches told the court that she was paid every other week based on an annual salary, with job duties such as “taking care of the child, preparing meals, cleaning, doing laundry, cleaning breast pump materials, organizing the nursery and running errands as needed.” .

Funches said she “worked around the clock” for several days with “little to no … rest” amidst her work for the Nightmare artist.

The nanny told the court that she was paid $5,000 when she addressed her employer about the lack of overtime pay, without explaining what the money was intended for to compensate her.

Funches said she texted the Bad at Love artist last March 16 to say she was out for several days as she “had to undergo a medical procedure”; and that Halsey fired her from the job “a few days later.”

Funches told the court that she believed the termination was in retaliation for her previous mention of overtime pay; and that Halsey had broken labor laws by firing her for her missed work days due to a medical procedure.
