Mariah Carey is ready to grill her ex-assistant who she accuses of attempted extortion.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a New York judge has ordered Carey will be allowed to take the deposition of Lianna Shakhnazaryan, which will go down this month.
Mariah sued her former personal assistant, Lianna Shakhnazaryan, accusing her of trying to blackmail her for $8 million with “intimate videos” of the singer. Mariah said the videos were filmed without her permission by Shakhnazaryan. The assistant denies all allegations and counter-sued Carey. Both cases are ongoing.
Carey will get to grill her former assistant under oath about the alleged extortion attempt, along with the story behind the intimate videos filmed.
In newly filed court docs, the judge reveals Carey will have to sit for a deposition by November 12.
The parties are set to appear in court next on January 7, 2020.
