Mariah Carey’s Former Assistant Fires Back With A Lawsuit
We reported earlier that Mariah Carey is suing her former assistant, Lianna Shakhnazarian, for secretly recording her doing embarrassing things.
The music star claims that her assistant popularly known as Azarian threatened to release the videos unless the singer paid her $8 million(N2,912,000,000).
However, in a turnaround of events Azarian has just fired back at the multiple Grammy award-winning singer’s blackmail allegation with her own lawsuit. According to Azarian, she was the victim of horrible abuse by one of Carey’s key people, and the singer did nothing about it.
In her suit, Azarian alleges Carey’s former manager, Stella Bulochnikov committed various acts of abuse, including slapping her butt and breasts, urinating on her, tackling her to the ground and sitting on her. Azarian also claims Bulochnikov called her the n-word, and a “f***ing Armenian whore”.
Not only that, the filed lawsuit also alleges Bulochnikov ridiculed Azarian’s breasts, “including placing objects under her breasts such as iPhones, television remote controls and utensils”.
Azarian claims a lot of the alleged abuse occurred in Carey’s presence and she did nothing.
In her suit, Azarian also says Carey herself committed acts of physical, emotional and psychological abuse against her. Azarian is suing Mariah, Stella and others.
As of the time of filing this report, Bulochnikov is yet to comment on the development.
Azarian’s lawyer, Mark Quigley in response to Carey’s blackmail lawsuit calls the allegations “baseless” and “an attempt to attack my client’s character and deflect attention away from a workplace harassment and wrongful termination lawsuit.”
“My client never did anything she wasn’t specifically asked to do.”
It waits to be seen how Carey and Bulochnikov will react to this.
