Mariah Carey's Former Manager Sues Singer Over Alleged Civil Rights Act Violations

Mariah Carey's Former Manager Sues Singer Over Alleged Civil Rights Act Violations

The 48-year-old singer posted a smiling photo of herself on Instagram on Saturday, thanking everyone and encouraging them to stay positive.

In a new People magazine cover story, Carey talks about having been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and where she is today. "It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn't do that anymore". I sought and received treatment'.

In a courageous interview with PEOPLE, Mariah admitted that she "lived in denial" and "constant fear of being exposed" after a 2001 diagnosis, when she was hospitalised for a physical and mental breakdown.

Mariah suffers from bipolar II disorder, which is characterised by bouts of depression and hypomania, and she now takes medication and has regular therapy sessions to manage her mental health.

Mariah Carey is facing legal action from her former manager.

"It's not making me feel too exhausted or sluggish or anything like that", the singer said. "My new team, including manager Stella Bulochnikov are the top of the line in the entertainment business and more importantly in my life and I am now much more financially successful and more organized than in the past".

Mariah revealed her 17-year-long battle with the disorder earlier this week, where she admitted she was living in "denial and isolation" before speaking publicly about her struggle.

Explaining why she's chose to speak out, Mariah told People: "I'm hopeful we can get to a place where the stigma is lifted from people going through anything alone".

Carey signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation in November 2017 - it was around this time that she was said to have let go of Stopler.
