However, Mariah Carey has been known to be stuck in the spotlight many times owing to her controversial behavior. There is a list of celebrities who do not like Mariah Carey, including Christina Aguilera, Miley Cyrus, Madonna, Demi Lovato and many more.
Now again Mariah Carey has come under the limelight for some rather controversial news.
Mariah has been accused by her former security company of harassment. The owner of the former security company has also threatened to sue her.
Michael Anello has come out and stated that the he was a victim of harrasment by the iconic singer. Anello claims that Mariah would constantly humiliate him by referring him to offensive terms like a Nazi, a skinhead, a KKK member and a white supremacist.
Michael Anello has asked his lawyer to draft a lawsuit against Mariah Carey, claiming that she is in breach of her contract and owes the company money for the their services. Anello alleges that the company provided services for Carey from June 2015 to May 2017 and did not get paid for the remaining balance of $221,329.51. Anello also claims that the company was promised another 2 years of service which would amount to another $511,000 to be paid.
The security officer complained that Mariah would address him as a member of racist groups. Anello confirmed that “Mariah wanted to be surrounded with black guys, not white people.”
The draft lawsuit also includes allegations of sexual harassment. Anello claims that Mariah would commit “sexual acts with the intent that they be viewed by Anello.”
Anello also describes an event depictive of her weird sexual behaviour. On a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mariah requested him to come to her room to move around some luggage. When Anello got to the room, Mariah was not appropriately dressed. She was wearing a see-through negligee that was open. According to Anello, he tried to leave and come back later but she made sure he stayed and moved the luggage. However, he claims that he left the room without any sort of physical contact with her.
Apprently Mariah’s party has informed that they have been trying to negotiate with Anello’s legal team to come to some sort of a settlement. They are ready to pay Anello some of the invoices. However, Anello does not seem to be satisfied with the amount proposed by Mariah’s team and has rejected the offer.
Mariah’s team claims they have no information regarding the allegations pertaining to sexual harassment lodged against her by her former security personnel.
At the moment, Anello’s legal team has put the lawsuit on a halt as they are still trying to negotiate an outside settlement with Mariah’s lawyers.
Since the revelation of sexual harassment by Harvey Weinstein of many female artists in the industry a pandoras box has opened where news has been flooding in of all kinds of sexual harassment that takes place in Hollywood. Mariah Carey too, it seems, could form part of this list.
New rumours have surfaced where Ed Westwick, Kevin Spacey and Charlie Sheen have accused of sexual assault many years ago.

Charlie Sheen too has been accused of raping a thirteen year old boy on the sets of his movie Lucas!
It should be finally appreciated that people are coming out with their stories and its not taboo to speak about them anymore.
