The reports come from Page Six, as the publication notes that she fired her former manager, Stella Bulochnikov, earlier this month.
“[Mariah’s] cleaning house. She is getting legitimate people, assistants, a lawyer, and Stella is not happy about it,” a source reveals to Page Six. “Previously, there were all kinds of people involved [in her career] and Mariah didn’t even know those people. She had to distance herself from all that and she’s now cleaning house.”
Apparently, Mariah’s back up dancer, Bryan Tanaka, was taking over as manager but his efforts were not good enough since Mariah is looking for a bigger name and entertainment company to lead her singing efforts and Bryan will be in charge of creative direction.
Aside from Mariah’s career moves, the singer was recently in headlines as another celebrity being accused of sexual assault. As we previously posted, Mariah was being accused of harassment by her former head of security, Michael Anello, who worked for her from June of 2015 until May of this year. According to documents, Michael is claiming that Mariah committed “sexual acts with the intent that they be viewed by [him].” He is also claiming that the diva called him and his co-workers White Supremacists calling him a “Nazi, a skinhead [and] a KKK member.”
Michael details a time in Cabo San Lucas when Mariah asked him to come to her hotel room to move luggage. When he arrived she was supposedly wearing a see-through negligee, purposely left it open. He made his way out of the situation without coming into contact with the singer. He claims that Mariah owes him $731,329.51 in unpaid invoices.
Mariah’s team had no knowledge of the harassment but agreed to pay Michael some of the owed money. It clearly wasn’t enough as the case is now on hold until both partied come to an agreement.
