If it’s not one fire Mariah Carey is working on putting out, it’s another. After news broke that she was suing her former assistant for extortion, the woman is hitting back with even wilder claims.
As seen in E!’s ‘Mariah’s World,’ Stella Bulochnikov served as the R&B diva’s manager and best friend. The relationship went sour and the woman ended up taking her to court for reasons including but not limited to: violating the U.S. Civil Rights and Fair Employment and Housing Acts and sexual harassment.
The two finally settled at the top of the year.
Immediately after, Mariah’s rep revealed that another one of the employees that worked for her in 2015 to 2017 attempted to extort the singer by allegedly threatening to release embarrassing videos in exchange for $8 million!
Carey has decided to file a suit against the disgruntled worker who took advantage of her.
The artists’ rep told USA Today: “This new year welcomes Mariah’s continued efforts to clean the trash from her life. Because her threats and bad acts are too great to be ignored, Mariah has been compelled to file a lawsuit. Azarian, without Mariah’s knowledge or permission, secretly filmed Mariah engaged in personal activities which, if revealed, Azarian knew would be personally embarrassing and professionally damaging to Mariah.”
The person in question is named Lianna Shakhnazaryan who has now filed a suit against the Queen of Christmas and her former manager for a multitude of degrading things that she was subject to while on Mariah’s payroll.
Buzzfeed News reported that Lianna alleges Stella Blochnikov held her down and urinated on her and placed objects under her breasts (from iPhones to remotes) all in the presence of the famous mother of twins.
That’s not all, Lianna even went on to accuse Mariah herself of racially charged insults. Mariah has yet to respond to these new claims.
