"Harry Potter's" Emma Watson would strike anyone as the least celebrity to get into trouble. However, latest reports suggest that the former Hogwarts alumnus might be in hot water. According to various reports, the 24-year old actress is under investigation by the UK immigration thanks to her housekeeper.

Reports by the Independent claim that British officials are now investigating Emma Watson's housekeeper. According to reports, the American housekeeper has been illegally employed as a maid in the UK.

The maid, who was on a tourist visa, was allegedly brought to the UK by the "Bling Ring" actress and was employed from September 2013 up until February 2014. Additional reports have it that the maid had been Emma's housekeeper during the latter's stay in the US for her education at Brown University.

If UK immigration officials' investigation does prove that the maid was employed illegally, Emma Watson would face up to $17,000 in fines. A representative of Watson has not yet spoken up on the matter.

In other Emma Watson related news, the film adaptation of "Beauty & the Beast" starring the actress might not be pushed through. After reports that Guillermo Del Toro dropped out of the director's chair, the film is completely on hold since the announcement of its' production late last 2012.

However, Emma's other film "Regression" opposite Ethan Hawke has already wrapped up production. Directed by Alejandro Amenabar, "Regression" follows the story of detective Bruce Kenner (Ethan Hawke) who investigates the case of Angela (Emma Watson) who had accused her father of a crime he has no memory of. The film is set for release on August 28, 2015.

After graduating from Brown University last May with a degree in English literature, Emma Watson is currently spending her time with beau, Matthew Janney. The lovebirds were recently spotted on the streets of London where they were caught by paparazzi locking lips.

Much to the delight of their fans, Emma wasn't the least bit pleased with the photos of her kissing Matthew spread over the web. As for Matthew's parents, they have nothing but great things to say about his current girlfriend.

"We are thrilled to bits that he is seeing Emma Watson. We are looking forward to meeting her soon. Hats off to her for finding such a wonderful young man. There is nothing bad anyone could say about Matt. He is absolutely lovely," stated Coralie Day, Matthew's guardians, to the Evening Standard.
