Published Apr 16, 2018Mariah Carey's former manager claims she was sexually harassed by the singer in a new lawsuit, TMZ reports.
The site reports that Carey's former manager Stella Stolper has filed legal documents ahead of an impending suit, stating that Carey violated the U.S. Civil Rights Act, the Fair Employment and Housing Act in addition to a breach of contract.
In regard to the sexual harassment allegations, TMZ says Stolper's files allege Carey rarely wore clothes around her and engaged in sexual acts in her presence.
Stolper also claims that Carey has a substance abuse problem, in addition to claiming that she was unfairly fired in the middle of her contract, and that she is stilled owed payment.
A representative for Carey denied the allegations of sexual assault, telling TMZ, "if this frivolous and baseless claim is filed, we will defend against it vigorously and successfully."
In related news, Carey opened up about her battle with bipolar disorder in an interview with People, writing to fans on Instagram over the weekend that she's "been hard at work, feeling inspired by each of your stories and uplifted by your overwhelming support."
