When you're a celebrity as huge (and skinny) as Mariah Carey, it stands to reason that you'll have to deal with your fair share of frauds trying to scam you out of your hard-earned millions. Carey is currently suing her former executive assistant Lianna Azarian, who, the pop star alleges, attempted to extort her.
According to E! News, court documents filed by Carey's team accuse Azarian of being a "grifter, a Peeping Tom(asina) and an extortionist." Carey also claims her former assistant was "outright stealing" from her. Even in legal document Carey is a compelling lyricist!
"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," claim the court documents. Carey claims her assistant promised to "sell the video for a profit and buy herself a home" if she was fired. E! News reports that they have a copy of a nondisclosure agreement Azarian signed that would prohibit her from releasing said videos, which she refuses to hand over despite Carey's repeated requests.
"This new year welcomes Mariah's continued efforts to clean the trash from her life," Carey's team said in a statement. As always, the queen of reading. "Because her threats and bad acts are too great to be ignored, Mariah has been compelled to file a lawsuit against her. Given that the evidence against this former assistant is vast and deplorable, we anticipate a victorious resolution. Mariah continues her streak of success this year with an upcoming North American tour and return to Vegas."
Carey is seeking $3 in damages, essentially telling her former assistant, "how bout you GTFO of my life, sis."
