A 23-year-old nanny in the United States is hitting back against allegations that she was “being groomed” by her employer after a video of them went viral.
Lizzie Norton, who reenacted the scene with her employer, Andrew, was gripped around the ribs during the initial lift but Andrew’s hands ultimately slipped upwards towards her breasts.
“You touched her boobs!” exclaimed Andrew’s wife, Rachel, amused by the situation.
Millions of views later, many criticized the pair, with some underestimating Norton’s age and accusing Andrew of “grooming.”
However, both Norton and the couple who pays her to look after their home and children have spoken up, describing their relationship as one between family members.
“I’m not being groomed, everybody can calm down,” Norton said.
“Andrew and her are funny and she’s like our little sister,” Rachel stated. “When she dates and makes bad decisions on other things, we give her advice. We tell her we’re disappointed in her, we tell her we’re proud of her.”
According to 7News, both Andrew and Rachel have complete trust in each other and Norton, who looks after the couple’s two children. Prior to the pandemic, Norton worked at a local daycare center.
The trio reportedly engage in hijinks such as the “Dirty Dancing” incident on a regular basis, according to Rachel.
Some netizens were more understanding after the explanation, though not everyone was convinced.
“Girl, don’t feel like you need to explain this, people are just insecure in their own relationships. She seems really sweet,” said one commenter.
“This story time really isn’t helping,” replied another.
