Mariah Carey's ex-assistant Lianna Azarian isn't going down without a fight.

Worst of all, Lianna Azarian says Mariah Carey was complicit in all the action.

R&B singer Mariah Carey is ready to take some serious legal action against a former personal assistant she hired.

Azarian's lawsuit alleges that Bulochnikov committed a number of acts of abuse including slapping her butt and breasts, while also urinating on her.

The accusations don't end there.

Azarian has filed a lawsuit that alleges Carey's former manager, Stella Bulochnikov, was abusive and used racist language towards her, according to TMZ.

The docs state that Azarian was initially paid a salary of $250,000, but Carey graciously increased it to $327,000 "when Azarian asserted that she required additional compensation because of the required hours". The suit also said she traded the singer's goodwill to get deep discounts.

Shakhnazaryan is seeking compensatory damages "including lost wages, past and future earnings [and] unpaid overtime", as well as money for "physical injury, mental pain and anguish and severe emotional distress", along with general damages, attorney's fees, the cost of the lawsuit, and punitive damages.

The artists' rep told USA Today: "This new year welcomes Mariah's continued efforts to clean the trash from her life".

Azarian is suing Carey, Bulochnikov and others.

Carey's lawsuit alleges that Shakhnazaryan secretly filmed her without her knowledge or permission, which if revealed would be personally embarrassing and professionally damaging to her. She "demanded millions of dollars and refused to return the evidence".

Some of the clips were said to have been shown to Azarian's friends and the former assistant stated she'd put them up for sale if she were ever fired.
