A former Mariah Carey assistant claims she worked night and day for the pop diva, but all she got in return was a lump of coal.
Ylser Oliver filed a lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan claiming that she worked 16-hour days tending to the singer and her family, and was never given meal breaks or overtime pay.
“My client put her family’s life on hold while tending to Mariah Carey’s family, and Mariah repaid her by underpaying her,” her lawyer, Matthew Blit, told the New York Post.
The lawsuit claims Oliver answered phone for the singer and did her personal shopping. She was hired in March 2007 and quit in June 2014, the lawsuit says.
[Carey] should have been aware that . . . the practices were unlawful.

Oliver’s lawyer told the Post that she is entitled to overtime pay for all the time she worked after-hours.
“[Carey] should have been aware that . . . the practices were unlawful,” the lawsuit says.
A Carey spokeswoman would not comment on the lawsuit.
