Mariah Carey is facing a lawsuit from her former manager Stella Bulochnikov.
Stella Bulochnikov filed a summons in New York on Friday, stating that she plans to sue Mariah Carey for violating the U.S. Civil Rights Act and the Fair Employment and Housing Act, as well as breach of contract.
According to a TMZ report, Bulochnikov is reportedly seeking damages and interest. A rep for Mariah Carey told Page Six on Monday:
“If this frivolous and baseless claim is filed, we will defend against it vigorously and successfully.”
Mariah Carey fired Stella Bulochnikov last year in favor of working with Roc Nation. Bulochnikov said in a statement, back in November:
“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. 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.
The statement concluded:
“Mariah Carey and Stella Bulochnikov remain partners in a number of business ventures, and will continue to support each other in those endeavors.”
Stella Bulochnikov also put down Carey’s reality show “Mariah’s World” and alleged that it, “sabotaged” the singer’s “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” performance in December 2016.
According to Insiders Stella Bulochnikov’s exit wasn’t exactly amicable. Days after Carey and failed comedian Bulochnikov parted ways, it was reported that Carey’s boyfriend, choreographer Bryan Tanaka, was “running her life” and that the “Hero” singer had undergone weight loss surgery.
