A New York model is suing her employer after claiming she was severely abused and was treated like a slave, according to court documents.
She describes herself as Cinderella, and worked as a caretaker for a wealthy family in New York City.
The aspiring model thought she was being hired as a live-in companion for an adult daughter with problems in a house located on Park Avenue, according to her lawsuit in Manhattan Supreme Court.
Andrea Duncan said that she ended up living a nightmare.
Duncan, 31, a pretty blond who moved to New York from Ohio, was scalded with boiling water, forced to clean the family apartment which is 4270 square feet, was forced to waitress at cocktail parties in skimpy outfits and ordered to pop pills to work harder, the lawsuit alleges.
The humiliation she allegedly suffered at the hands of Susan O'Leary was similar to slavery, the lawsuit alleges, in which she is demanding unspecified damages.
"I was treated worse than Cinderella," she said. "All I wanted was a safe place to live and make some money to support myself. I was wrong."
O'Leary said: "No comment," when asked about the allegations at her home on Saturday.
