Another day, another Mariah Carey story!

Hot on the heels of news that the pop diva parted ways with her manager Stella Bulochnikov and underwent gastric sleeve surgery, the former head of her security company is accusing her of sexual harassment.

According to TMZ, Michael Anello, who worked for Carey from June 2015 to May 2017, claims that Carey committed “sexual acts with the intent that they be viewed by Anello.”

Anello describes in the lawsuit draft an incident during a trip to Cabo San Lucas in which the singer requested he come to her room to move some luggage, and was wearing a see-through negligee that was open. Anello alleges he tried leaving, but she insisted he move the luggage. He says he left the room and there was no physical contact between them.

Anello also claims that Carey owes him a whopping $220,000.  Additionally, he says that he was promised another two years of pay, adding $511,000 to the money owed. 

And if thats not enough, Anello also alleges that Carey called him a Nazi and also referenced him and his colleagues as skinheads and members of the KKK.

Carey’s team say they have no information on the sexual harassment claim, however they were in touch with Anello’s lawyer and have agreed to pay certain invoices. Anello’s lawyer told TMZ that the lawsuit is currently on hold.

Meanwhile Carey’s name has now been added to the growing list of Hollywood power players being accused of sexual misconduct and assault – most recently Carey’s good pal Brett Ratner, Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
