Mariah Carey Sued By Former Employee
Divorce isn’t the only thing Mariah Carey should be worried about, according to new reports Mimi is being sued by a former employee, Ysler Oliver, who claims she was overworked and underpaid. Tell us about it.
Oliver began working as Mariah’s assistant in 2007 and quit in June 2014. According to Oliver, she would work 16-hour days doing errands and tasks assistants typically do.
“My client put her family’s life on hold while tending to Mariah Carey’s family, and Mariah repaid her by underpaying her,” Oliver’s attorney Matthew Bilt said. “My client is a very hardworking woman who treated Mariah and her family like her own, working all hours of the day and night. Even celebrities are required to abide by the law.”
Oliver claims she wasn’t paid the legal time and a half for all of her overtime hours. However, Mariah’s spokesperson, Cindi barker, doesn’t seem to know about the suit.
“I can’t comment on anything that I’m not aware of and we haven’t heard anything about this lawsuit,” she said.
And then there’s that.
