Singer Mariah Carey sues personal assistant over "Embarrassing Video"


According to a copy of a lawsuit, Mariah Carey says she was betrayed in a huge way by Azarian, who secretly recorded her doing "embarrassing" things and then threatening to release the videos unless the singer brings Eight Million Dollars, TMZ said.

The documents states, "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".

She also alleged Stella branded her a "f***ing Armenian whore" and the n-word, as well as frequently ridiculing the size of her chest and "placing objects under her breasts such as iPhones, television remote controls and utensils".

As well as recording the clips, the "Fantasy" singer - who has twins Moroccan and Monroe, seven, with ex-husband Nick Cannon - also alleged her former staff member used her credit card to buy personal items and obtained discounts from retailers by claiming she was buying things for Mariah.

The former assistant claims that Bulochnikov's abusive behavior and language happened in front of Carey, and the singer did nothing to stop it.

After a settlement was reached, Carey is going after another one of her past employees. If Carey couldn't provide that cash, Azarian said she'd release the aforementioned videos and other reputation-ruining details.

Azarian was let go in November 2017 after two and a half years of serving as an executive assistant, and Mariah claims that's when her blackmail scheme began.

TMZ reports that Carey demanded the videos and other evidence of criminal activity be returned to her, but was ignored.

It is reported the assistant had previously shown the videos to friends and claimed she would sell them if she was ever fired. She's reportedly suing for at least $3 million.
