Carey tells of bipolar battle

Mariah Carey is facing a lawsuit from her former manager Stella Bulochnikov, who claims the singer sexually harassed her. "Mariah Carey and Stella Bulochnikov remain partners in a number of business ventures, and will continue to support each other in those endeavours".

An onlooker said at the time: "She wheeled it out of the back room and carried sparklers".

The "Touch My Body" hitmaker revealed in an interview published this week that she has been secretly battling bipolar II disorder - which causes a person to experience hypomanic episodes as well as low, depressive ones - since 2001, and has now said she has been "inspired" by the messages of support her fans have been sending her. I sought and received treatment'.

Carey, one of the best-selling music artists in the world with 200 million records sold and hits like "We Belong Together", said she was taking medication for the bipolar II form of the disorder, which is marked by less severe mood swings between depression and hyperactivity. She said that she first thought she was suffering with "normal insomnia" as she could not sleep and was "working and working and working".

Carey fired Bulochnikov previous year in favor of working with Roc Nation.

Miss "Songbird Supreme" is now working on a new album with Roc Nation, which will be the first since her 2014 album, Me. I'm hopeful we can get to a place where the stigma is lifted from people going through anything alone.

Carey's ex-husband, Nick Cannon, reportedly expressed pride that she went public with her condition.

"He's proud of her for coming forward and using her platform for good".
