It looks like Mariah Carey might be headed to court. The Touch My Body singer's former security guard Michael Anello is planning to sue her for among other things sexual harassment. According to documents, Michael also alleges Mariah called him a Nazi, white supremacist, and KKK member repeatedly.
TMZ is reporting that Michael's lawyer has drafted up a lawsuit, which claims the 47-year-old diva owes his company $221,329.51. The papers also state that Mariah, "wanted to be surrounded with black guys, not white people." As for the sexual harassment claims, Michael details an incident when he was in Mexico with Mariah where she called him to her room to move luggage — and she was wearing only a see-through negligee. While he admits there was no physical contact, the draft adds, that she committed "sexual acts with the intent that they be viewed by Anello."

A rep for Mariah told TMZ that she is willing to pay certain invoices, but did not respond to the sexual harassment claims. The lawsuit is currently on hold, presumably because both parties are trying to come to a settlement.
This comes on the heels of the news that Mariah split from her longtime manager Stella Bulochnikov. “After working together for almost three years, Mariah Carey and Stella Bulochnikov have determined that it is in their mutual best interest to part ways on day-to-day management,” both said in a statement. “During their time working together, they have accomplished great things, including, most recently, Mariah Carey’s new music and motion picture projects for this upcoming holiday season. Mariah Carey and Stella Bulochnikov remain partners in a number of business ventures, and will continue to support each other in those endeavors.”
Seeing as Stella was working with Mariah during her short-lived reality show and disastrous New Year's Eve performance last year, it's not a huge surprise. Instead, her boyfriend Bryan Tanaka will be taking over.
