Mariah Carey’s New Manager Is Tearing Her Squad Apart

Right after announcements have leaked that Mariah Carey will be starring in her own reality show,  it seems that her squad has started disintegrating before the cameras even started rolling.

Mariah Carey’s new manager Stella Bulochnikov has been criticized as controlling and toxic by others close to the situation, with an anonymous source closely involved speculating:

“It seems as if Mariah has allowed a complete stranger, her new manager, to run her life, and others believe this woman is toxic. Seasoned executives in their profession don’t want to put up with her. Stella is hard to work with. Mariah doesn’t understand what’s going on because Stella paints a different picture, so Mariah probably thinks it’s petty disagreements. These are not just random people who have left her. These are loyal people who have been around for years, some 20.”

Apparently her business manager Michael Kane has called it quits and her international publicist Connie Filipello, her domestic publicist Chris Chambers, tour manager Michael Richardson, travel manager Gaylin Winkler, and the stylist Wilfredo Rosado who designed her engagement ring have also thrown in the towel. Whatever poison Bulochnikov is putting in their drinks is working, because her squad is dropping like flies.

There have been accusations that Stella hasn’t paid people, and has also used camera time to shit-talk former employees of Mariah, making obvious attempts to claim her controlling stake in Mariah’s career.

The anonymous source also said the reality show will be more full of lies than the average reality show because of Stella’s involvement:

“Stella has been using the TV platform to bad-mouth former people on the team on camera .  She’s turning it into a reality show. She’s creating scenarios, and it’s not all about the shows in Vegas as she’s claimed. The show will definitely be trashy because it’s full of lies.”

As messy and horrific as this all sounds, it’s probably going to make for some riveting television.
