The singer gave birth to her first child last July.
Funches was dismissed back in March, according to court records obtained by TMZ, after taking time off for an emergency medical procedure.
“These allegations are baseless,” a spokesperson for the Grammy-nominated performer said in a statement to the publication.
“This individual’s employment was recently terminated in response to specific incidents in which Halsey’s infant was left unsupervised in an unsafe location while under the nanny’s care, and it was discovered the nanny was intoxicated while the child was in her care.”
“Furthermore, at no time during this individual’s term of employment with Halsey were any complaints even raised,” the statement continued.
In a separate report by The Blast, the nanny also claimed that she began protesting about the singer’s inability to pay overtime earnings for the lengthy hours she worked.
“Consequently, while Halsey is both saddened and disappointed by this turn of events, they feel it is important to refute these allegations publicly, as they take ableism and ethical working conditions very seriously,” her representative added.
Halsey and her partner, Alev Aydin, had their baby Ender in July 2021. Halsey and their firm, Halsey Music, recruited her last year to be a “live-in personal attendant” for the child’ after the baby was born.
