Mariah Carey rushed to court demanding her ex-assistant not be allowed to see her medical records.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the singer is pleading with a judge to shut down two subpoenas her former employee, Lianna Shakhnazaryan, sent to her doctors.
Mariah and Lianna are currently battling each other in dueling lawsuits. The pop star accuses Lianna of secretly recording her. She says Lianna then used the videos to try and blackmail her for $8 million. Lianna accuses Mariah of owing her money and wrongful termination.
In newly filed documents, Mariah says Lianna recently served “subpoenas on two of Mariah’s doctors, Dr. Nazarian and Dr. Lerner.” The subpoenas asked the doctors to turn over communications they had with Mariah, Lianna and Mariah’s former manager Stella. Mariah argues her medical records are covered by patient-physician privilege. She says Lianna has no right to see the documents.
She says, “And consistent with her shakedown litigation tactics, Shakhnazarian now claims that she is entitled to Mariah’s medical records because Mariah has somehow placed her own health at issue. That is wrong.”
