Mariah Carey is facing an all-too-real lawsuit by her ex-manager.

After receiving a deluge of supportive tweets and messages, Mariah shared a post on Instagram, writing: "I've been hard at work, feeling inspired by each of your stories and uplifted by your overwhelming support".

Only last week, Mariah was praised for coming forward about the secret plight of her bipolar II disorder.

She said she is taking medication that "is not making me feel too exhausted or sluggish" and is working on a new album due out later this year. "Let's continue to encourage each other on our journeys".

She has bipolar 11 disorder‚ which results in long periods of depression and hypomania.

But three justices - Neil Gorsuch, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy - have suggested a willingness to rethink those decisions. This law was challenged by the state of South Dakota as it seeks to collect sales taxes from out-of-state internet retailers.


Carey, who is divorced from actor Nick Cannon and shares 6-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with him, said she made a decision to go public now because she's "just in a really good place right now, where I'm comfortable discussing my struggles with bipolar II disorder". "Hopefully, (being vocal about bipolar disorder) will be freeing for her". She also said Carey has a debilitating substance abuse problem, including alcohol and prescription medication.

The singer also revealed she made a decision to come forward with her mental health battle in an effort to help lift the stigma surrounding mental health. I was so terrified of losing everything I convinced myself the only way to deal with this was to not deal with this. "It's not making me feel too exhausted or sluggish or anything like that".

"I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me", Carey told the celebrity magazine. I sought and received treatment'.

"It can be incredibly isolating", she said.
