Headline of the day: “Mariah Carey’s assistant claims she was peed on and called a ‘whore'”

That was the headline for a news alert from Variety late last night. Naturally, I clicked on it.

Mariah Carey’s former assistant claims in a new lawsuit that she was subjected to physical and sexual abuse, which included being called a “whore” and being urinated on.

“Lianna Shakhnazaryan filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court, claiming she was tormented by Carey’s manager, Stella Bulochnikov. According to the suit, Bulochnikov slapped her buttocks and breasts, tackled her, and would sit on her.

“She also claims that Bulochnikov would hold her down and urinate on her. She contends that Bulochnikov would call her an “Armenian whore,” an “Armenian princess,” and a “f-cking n—–.” The suit claims that Carey condoned Bulochnikov’s behavior, and that it sometimes occurred in her presence.”

Whoa. Keep reading.
