Mariah Carey has settled her $ 3 million lawsuit against her ex-assistant – accused of trying to blackmail the diva with secretly recorded videos, according to new court documents.
Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Andrew Borrok closed the 2019 lawsuit the “Fantasy” singer brought against her former assistant Lianna “Azarian” Shakhnazarian by simply writing “Case settled,” according to a decision Wednesday.
The terms of the settlement were not made public and Carey’s attorney declined to comment. Shakhnazarian’s lawyers did not immediately return a request for comment.

The “Always Be My Baby” crooner claimed that Shaknazarian – who was canned in 2017 – secretly recorded embarrassing “personal activities” and in some cases “intimate” videos of her, then threatened to release them if the pop star didn’t give him $ 8 million.

Carey also claimed that Shakhnazarian violated a nondisclosure agreement she signed when she was hired in 2015.

In September, Borrok sided with the 51-year-old singer when he sanctioned Shakhnazarian for destroying two videos, WhatsApp messages and an old cell phone that could all have helped Carey in her case. Shakhnazarian’s appeal against this decision is still pending.
