Mariah Carey is in the middle of a ferocious legal battle with a woman she says filmed intimate videos of her without her permission with hopes of using them to blackmail the ‘Elusive Chanteuse.’
Full report below…
Carey claims that her former assistant Lianna Shakhnazaryan hatched a plot to derail her career and sully her legacy by recording some of the singer’s more “intimate” moments without her permission and inferred that she would release them if $8 million was not transferred to her bank account!
Mariah fought back and alerted legal authorities by launching a lawsuit which accused Lianna of attempted blackmail.
Then, an enraged Lianna filed a wrongful termination suit in response and has now asked Mariah’s doctors to give her the singer’s medical records because she believes something inside of them will support her case.
Little did she know that Mariah would counter her attack with a fresh legal filing.
An excerpt from it reads…
The subpoena seeks Mariah’s private medical records and testimony regarding Mariah’s medical records, both of which are irrelevant to the subject matter of this action or the determination of any motion made in this action. Rather, the subpoena is nothing more than an improper attempt to embarrass and harass Mariah.
As a public figure, Mariah is no stranger to having her private life mercilessly dissected by tabloids. In the past, tabloids have printed articles from “sources close” to Mariah who have made various sensationalist allegations about her health.
Even if the disclosure of medical records were made subject to a protective order, it would be difficult (if not impossible) to prevent further unauthorized “leaks” to the tabloids. Any disclosure of Mariah’s medical records would undoubtedly lead to further embarrassing and insulting headlines.
Carey hired Lianna in 2015 but says she was forced to give her the boot after discovering that she was a “Peeping Thomasina”.
Lianna denies the allegation and argues that any mental or emotional distress the singer was as a result of her own behaviour.
She is countersuing for wrongful termination, whistleblower retaliation, and harassment.
