Just days after Mariah Carey revealed she's been secretly battling with bipolar, the singer has been slapped with a lawsuit by a former employee.

Her former manager Stella Bulochnikov is suing the Always Be My Baby singer, claiming she sexually harassed her during their time working together, alleging she was often nude in front of her.

Bulochnikov is reportedly seeking damages from the 48-year-old mum-of-two for breach of contract and a violation of her human and working rights, according to TMZ who have seen the court documents.

While Be has reached out to theHero singer's reps for comment, one of her spokespeople has already toldPageSix it was a "frivolous and baseless claim" and that they will "defend against it vigorously and successfully”.
