Mariah Carey and her former manager, Stella Stolper, have finally settled their case. Marlen Kruzhkov, the attorney for Stella Stolper tells E! News, “Ms. Carey and Ms. Stolper have agreed to resolve all disputes between and among them.”
In response to the new claims, Carey’s rep told E! News “Stella Bulochnikov was terminated from employment as Mariah’s manager due to failure to perform her job effectively and ill-serving her client. Stella was not under contract for employment. She has been spreading false rumors to any media outlet that will publish them. We won’t respond to lies and threats. Again, if this frivolous and baseless claim is filed, we will defend against it vigorously and successfully. It is also interesting to note that this is the first lawyer who will move forward on Stella’s behalf, having previously gone through three others who wouldn’t.”
It seems there may be a few sides to this story. According to one source close to Carey, Stolper allegedly took money she wasn’t entitled to, charged hundreds of thousands of her personal expenses to credit cards Mariah had to pay and allegedly violated California law by circumventing Mariah’s talent agent to try and book engagements for her.
