Following a lawsuit from her former assistant Lianna Shakhnazaryan, the singer, 48, is now suing Bulochnikov, demanding she be forced to pay any judgement or settlement that may stem from Shakhnazaryan’s suit, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.
In her cross-complaint filed to Los Angeles court on March 5, Carey argues that Shakhnazaryan — also known as Lianna Azarian — accused Bulochnikov of “severe, pervasive, sexual derogatory, offensive, physically abusive and outrageous conduct” in her lawsuit — so the former manager should be the party to “compensate” the disgruntled ex-assistant.
“Any damages sustained by Azarian in connection with her employment were caused solely or in substantial part by the acts and/or omissions of the Bulchnikov Defendants,” Carey argued.
“If and to the extent that the Mariah Defendants are required to compensate Azarian as a result of a judgment or settlement in this action, equity and good conscience demand that the Bulchnikov Defendants be required to pay all or a significant portion of that compensation.”
As Radar previously reported, Shakhnazaryan sued Carey in January for allegedly turning a blind eye to Bulochnikov’s abuse during her two-year employment with the star.
Bulochnikov was accused of battering Carey’s assistant by slapping her breasts and butt, and urinating on her in front of other people.
Shakhnazaryan also alleged Bulochnikov spewed racial slurs at her, calling her “a f**king Armenian w***.”
In 2018, Bulochnikov told Radar she was planning to file suit against Carey for $100 million.
“Instead of paying me what she owes me…she chartered yachts and private jets, and went on lavish vacations to the Bahamas,” Bolochnikov claimed.
However, the pair made up in January, and settled all their issues — until now.
