The star is accusing Shakhnazaryan of secretly recording embarrassing videos. She stated in her suit that by doing so the former assistant violated a non-disclosure agreement.

The self-proclaimed diva is also accusing her former assistant of trying to extort $8 million from her. Shakhnazaryan says she was hired in September 2015, and was offered a salary of $328,500 a year.

Shakhnazaryan alleges that was on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. She was also expected to carry out work for both Carey and Bulochnikov.

The bulk of the allegations in the lawsuit are against Bulochnikov however, it also claims Carey was also physically and psychologically abusive. Shakhnazaryan insists she was fired in November 2017 after she reported Bulochnikov’s terrible behavior to Carey at a Connecticut resort.
