If anything has been proven in the past several months, it’s that no one is safe from charges of sexual harassment, including one of the world’s most famous songstresses.
The former bodyguard of Mariah Carey claims that the “We Belong Together” singer exposed herself to him, when she wasn’t busy calling him racist names, TMZ reported.
Michael Anello, who owns the company that Carey hired for security, has threatened to sue Carey for back wages, according to a draft lawsuit from his attorney obtained by TMZ.

The draft claimed that Carey, 47, owes Anello $221,329.51 for back pay and that he was promised an additional two years’ wages, valued at $511,000.
Anello also claimed that Carey called him a Nazi, a white supremacist and a member of the KKK and insisted she “wanted to be surrounded with black guys, not white people.”

It also claimed that Carey, who is currently dating dancer Bryan Tanaka, committed “sexual acts with the intent that they be viewed by Anello,” including an incident in which Anello said Carey asked him to move luggage in her hotel room while she was dressed in a see-through negligee.

Representatives for Carey, who has a fortune of more than $500 million according to estimates, told TMZ that they agreed to pay some invoices but that Anello was not happy with the amount.
They had no comment on the charges of sexual harassment or any of the other accusations against Carey.
