This is weird news. Mariah Carey may have the distinction of being the first woman celebrity to be accused of sexual harassment after the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

Mariah Carey Accused of Sexual Harassment
Mariah Carey allegedly referred to her former head of security as a Nazi, a skinhead, a Ku Klux Klan member, and a white supremacist, according to complaints contained in a draft lawsuit reported by the website TMZ.
Lawyers for Michael Anello, who headed up Carey’s security company, have prepared the papers, which also accuse Carey of exposing herself to him.
Anello says his company worked for Mariah from June 2015 to May 2017 and were not only stiffed on more than $200,000, but were also denied another promised two years of work, which would have added $511,000 to the tab.
It should be noted that the TMZ report states the suit has now been paused as the two sides presumably attempt to come to an accommodation.
In the suit, Anello says Mariah humiliated him and his colleagues by referring to them as members of the hate groups, according to TMZ, and claims Mariah “wanted to be surrounded with black guys, not white people.”
That last part of the story is so disappointing. And very sad.
