Last week there were rumors that Mariah Carey's new manager, Stella Bulochnikov, was causing a divide in MiMi's camp after convincing the diva to sign on for a reality show [click here if you missed that].
Now there are whispers key staffers have jumped ship and others aren't being paid...

Sources tell us [Mariah's] business manager Michael Kane, international publicist Connie Filippello, domestic publicist Chris Chambers, tour manager Michael Richardson, travel manager Gaylin Winkler and stylist Wilfredo Rosado, who designed her engagement ring, have all put in their walking papers.
“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,” says a source close to the situation. “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.”
Bulochnikov even brought in her own lawyer and bookkeeper, which our source says has left Mariah’s staffers waiting to be paid.
“She hasn’t paid people, and they are threatening lawsuits,” said the source.
