Mariah Carey has settled the sexual harassment lawsuit brought forward by her longtime former manager Stella Bulochnikov Stolper.
“The parties [have] reached a mutually agreed resolution to this matter,” Bulochnikov’s attorney wrote, according to PageSix. News of the sexual harassment lawsuit was made public back in April.
According to TMZ, Stolper said Carey, 48, was “constantly naked in front of her.” The website also stated Carey’s former worker accused the musician of doing “sexual things” in her presence.
However, the “Hero” star’s rep denied the accusations, telling ET Canada: “If this frivolous and baseless claim is filed, we will defend against it vigorously and successfully.”
The comments came after TMZ also revealed Stolper was planning to release information on Carey’s alleged substance abuse problem. Carey revealed in April that she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2001.
It was reported earlier that Carey was being accused of violating the U.S. Civil Rights Act, the Fair Employment and Housing Act, and breach of contract, according to TMZ sources.
In a statement from Carey’s rep, it had been confirmed that Stolper has been fired: “Stella Bulochnikov was terminated from employment as Mariah’s manager due to failure to perform her job effectively and ill-serving her client.
“Stella was not under contract for employment. She has been spreading false rumours to any media outlet that will publish them. We won’t respond to lies and threats. Again, if this frivolous and baseless claim is filed, we will defend against it vigorously and successfully. It is also interesting to note that this is the first lawyer who will move forward on Stella’s behalf, having previously gone through three others who wouldn’t.”
Stolper is said to have been the “go-to person” during Carey’s engagement to Australian business magnate James Packer. The two were “joined at the hip,” the publication reported, until they parted ways last year.
