The lawsuit also targets Michaela Angela Davis, co-author of the book, publisher Macmillan Publishing Group, and a third person involved in editing The Meaning of Mariah Carey .
“His attempt to falsely characterize the plaintiff as being as violent as his father, and his subsequent comments about the police’s dealings with black people were only the beginning of Mariah Carey’s desperate attempt to defame the plaintiff , to play the victim’s card and curry favor with the Black Lives Matter movement, ”it describes in the complaint.
