Mariah Carey has settled the sexual harassment lawsuit filed by her ex-manager, Stella Bulochnikov Stolper.
The suit was filed against her last April, but Bulochnikov Stolper's lawyer released the following statement:
“The parties [have] reached a mutually agreed resolution to this matter.”
Mariah's ex-manager claimed that the superstar would frequently walk around naked in front of her, which made her uncomfortable.
On Mariah's short-lived reality television show, Mariah's World, Bulochnikov Stolper presented herself as not only being a manager of Mariah's but also a close friend. That close friendship may have wrongly led Mariah to believe that she could completely relax around her. She also accused Mariah of having a substance abuse issue to self-medicate her bipolar disorder.
Viewers of the show did not take to Bulochnikov Stolper and felt that she was just there for the perks and the fame. So the lawsuit was not as huge a shock to some as you might think.
Mariah fired her before she decided to file the lawsuit. A spokesperson for Bulochnikov Stolper said at the time:
“After working together for almost three years, Mariah Carey and Stella Bulochnikov have determined that it is in their mutual best interest to part ways on day-to-day management…During their time working together, they have accomplished great things, including, most recently, Mariah Carey’s new music and motion picture projects for this upcoming holiday season. Mariah Carey and Stella Bulochnikov remain partners in a number of business ventures, and will continue to support each other in those endeavors.”
Details of the settlement have not been revealed.
