Rob Lowe

Actor Rob Lowe declined when asked if he wanted to file a criminal complaint against former nanny, Jessica Gibson, who allegedly tried to blackmail him and his wife.

Lowe declined any police intervention. He claimed he wanted to deal with the matter in a "civil" manner.

Deputy Alex Tipolt of the Santa Barbara Sheriff's Department told E! News on Tuesday, "We spoke to Mr. Lowe and his attorney yesterday and they told us, at this time, they are going to handle this as a civil matter." Tipolt added the police will not be starting their own investigation either. "Without the co-operation of the victim, it makes that a little difficult. And we don't even know the exact facts of what transpired."

Lowe claimed that Gibson demanded that he and his wife Sheryl pay her $1.5 million by the end of the week or she would go to the press with allegations of harassment. Lowe went public with the alleged extortion, saying it was "an attempt to damage and humiliate not only my wife and me, but our two sons as well."

Lowe filed legal papers at the Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday that said Gibson told friends that she had "a personal and intimate relationship (with Lowe) and, in effect, accusing Rob Lowe of infidelity." The actor is suing Gibson for violating a confidentiality agreement, defamation and inflicting of emotional distress.
