The former head of security for singer Mariah Carey has prepared a lawsuit against the pop icon alleging that she repeatedly humiliated him and his team with racially charged insults and at one point sexually harassed him by performing "sexual acts" in front of him.
In a draft lawsuit reported by TMZ and the Daily Beast, Michael Anello, Carey's former head of security, alleges that Carey not only failed to pay his team hundreds of thousands of dollars, but she deliberately humiliated him and his team.
The suit alleges that the singer repeatedly referred to Anello and his security team as Nazis, skinheads, KKK members and white supremacists, and made clear that she "wanted to be surrounded with black guys, not white people."
Anello also claims that she once asked him to come to her hotel room to move some luggage, but then performed "sexual acts with the intent that they be viewed by Anello." TMZ reports:
Anello claims during a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mariah asked him to come to her room to move some luggage and when he got there, she was wearing a see-through negligee that was open. He says he tried leaving but she insisted he move the luggage. He says he left the room and there was no physical contact.
The draft lawsuit states that Anello worked for Carey from June 2015 to May 2017. Over that period, Anello claims Carey failed to pay his team $200,000 owed to them and also denied them another promised two years of work, which would have amounted to $511,000.
Carey's representatives told TMZ they were in contact with Anello's attorney "and were agreeable to pay certain invoices, but we're told Anello is not satisfied with the amount."
"Mariah's people have no information on the sexual harassment claim," TMZ notes.
Anello's lawyer says the suit is on hold as they try to negotiate a settlement.
