Mariah Carey‘s battle with her former assistant has taken a sharp turn after the entertainer revealed that she believes her legal foe destroyed evidence to bamboozle the legal system.
Full story below….
Carey is at war with Lianna Shakhnazaryan because the young woman, as far she sees it, used a recording device to capture her at vulnerable and intimate moments and tried to use them to extort her for 8 million.
Mariah is seeking $5 million in damages, but has learned that Lianna says that she is the one to blame for the breakdown of their working relationship because the singer subjected her to emotional abuse.
She says that any pain and suffering the ‘Butterfly’ songbird is facing is self-inflicted.
Today, there is an update.
‘The Blast’ reports..
In newly filed documents, Carey is asking the court to sanction Shakhnazaryan for withholding evidence. The heavily redacted documents reveal Carey has been trying to obtain her former assistant’s cell phone messages and records.
Carey says the defendant was put on notice to preserve all evidence related to the legal battle. However, she says despite a court order her former assistant has failed to turn over everything.
Mariah suspects that some of the evidence has been obliterated and now wants a team of experts “to determine whether Shakhnazaryan has withheld or destroyed other relevant evidence.”
The case is ongoing.
