Concerns for 88-year-old Marie-Christophe de Menil’s safety were raised in a lawsuit filed earlier this month by a woman who says she worked for years as the philanthropist’s assistant and caregiver only to be falsely accused of trespassing at the home by Menil’s daughter, Taya Thurman, the half-sister of actress Uma Thurman.
