It seems singer Mariah Carey is not a very good boss as she is being sued by her former nanny.
The ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ hitmaker has found herself locked in a lawsuit over the festive period after her ex-employee Maria Burgues accused her of underpaying her and failing to give her adequate lunchtimes and breaks.
Maria who has claimed worked for Mariah between 2017 and 2018 was hired to look after the pop diva’s eight-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, whom she has with her ex-husband Nick Cannon, and escort them around the world.
However, according to court documents, obtained by TMZ.com, Maria has claimed she didn’t get paid enough for the jobs she was forced to do.
She believes she’s entitled to a payout because 49-year-old singer allegedly wouldn’t let her have 10-minute breaks for every four hours she worked and she wasn’t allowed a 30-minute lunch break for every five hours plus she worked.
Maria has claimed she was fired shortly after she complained about one of Mariah’s bodyguards who allegedly treated her badly after he reportedly almost got them into a major car crash because he was fiddling around with his phone.
This is not the first time that Mariah Carey has been sued by a former employee.
In January 2019, Carey’s former personal assistant, Lianna Shakhnazaryan (also known as Lianna Azarian), claimed she was subjected to sexual battery and harassment during her approximately two years of employment before being wrongfully terminated by the singer in 2017.
Carey also sued Shakhnazaryan, accusing her former assistant of secretly filming embarrassing videos, in violation of a non-disclosure agreement, and trying to extort her out of $8 million.
