Mariah Carey's ex-manager is suing her for alleged civil rights violation
The news of the lawsuit comes very closely after Mariah revealed that she suffered from bipolar disorder
Mariah Carey is being sued by her ex-manager Stella Bulochnikov for an alleged civil rights violation.
Bulochnikov decided to file a summons in New York City and has stated that she is going to sue Carey for allegedly violating the US Civil Rights Act and the Fair Employment and Housing Act, as well as breach of contract as stated by TMZ. Bulochnikov is also seeking damages and interest.
"If this frivolous and baseless claim is filed, we will defend against it vigorously and successfully," a representative for Mariah told Page Six.
Carey fired Stella last year as she decided to work with Roc Nation. "After working together for almost three years, Mariah Carey and Stella Bulochnikov have determined that it is in their mutual best interest to part ways on day-to-day management," Bulochnikov stated.
"During their time working together, they have accomplished great things, including, most recently, Mariah Carey’s new music and motion picture projects for this upcoming holiday season. Mariah Carey and Stella Bulochnikov remain partners in a number of business ventures, and will continue to support each other in those endeavors," she continued.
Sources revealed, "[Mariah’s] cleaning house. She is getting legitimate people, assistants, a lawyer, and Stella is not happy about it." It is reported that Stella Bulochnikov's exit was far from amicable.
In the year 2016, sources told Page Six, "Stella is the furthest thing from a manager. She’s a TV producer. She’s practically moved in with Mariah and now she has so much stuff on her that she can get her to do anything."
The news of the lawsuit comes very closely after Mariah revealed that she suffered from bipolar disorder. "Until recently I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me. It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn’t do that anymore. I sought and received treatment, I put positive people around me and I got back to doing what I love — writing songs and making music."
