Mariah Carey sues her personal assistant for alleged blackmail

Posted January 18, 2019

She would later claim that Mariah Carey was herself responsible for the physical, emotional and psychological waged against her.

According to court documents, Mariah Carey said she hired Azarian in March 2015 and soon after she was already buying personal stuff with Mariah's credit card and claiming she was doing so for the singer.

Entertainment website TMZ.com reported on Wednesday that Azarian had secretly recorded Carey and threatened to release "embarrassing" videos unless the pop star paid up to $8 million. 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". The suit also claims that Bulochnikov called Azarian the n-word and a "f-ing Armenian whore" and that she ridiculed her breasts, "including placing objects under her breasts such as iPhones, television remote controls and utensils".

The case against Carey's former assistant revolves around Azarian allegedly filming the singer without her permission. Some of the clips were said to have been shown to Azarian's friends and the former assistant stated she'd put them up for sale if she were ever fired.
