Mariah Made Me Work 16 Hour Days With No Meal Breaks - Former PA
Pop diva's ex-personal assistant files lawsuit over alleged underpayment...
Mariah Carey's former personal assistant has begun a legal claim for "a significant amount of money" which she claims she was underpaid while working for the pop star.
Ylser Oliver, 49, has filed a lawsuit in Manhattan Federal Court - claiming that she was heavily overworked and underpaid in her seven years in Mimi's service.
Public documents reveal that she alleges she worked "on average approximately sixteen hours per day... for six to seven days per week".
And she also claims that she was never paid overtime and wasn't given a meal break during her entire time of employment with the star.
Her duties apparently included tidying Mariah's home in NYC and organising repairs, packing luggage for trips, attending to her "personal needs" and travelling with her on business trips.
She also says she took Mariah's calls, did her shopping and "cared" for her friends and family.
Oliver's lawyer told the New York Post: "My client put her family's life on hold while tending to Mariah Carey's family, and Mariah repaid her by underpaying her.
"My client is a very hard-working woman who treated Mariah and her family like her own, working all hours of the day and night. Even celebrities are required to abide by the law."
Oliver quit this year after becoming unhappy with her hours of work. Her lawsuit alleges that she deserves at least time-and-a-half for her unpaid overtime.
