There’s trouble on the horizon for one Mariah Carey. According to legal documents that appeared online, Carey has been sued for upwards of $1.2m by her older sister the elder Ms. Carey.
Allison Carey, who has a long and checkered past herself, openly claims that Carey made the book knowing that it was ‘dishonest.” Dishonest to the tune of alleged emotional turmoil and lies based on things that didn’t happen. It’s worth noting that Ms Carey also has an eerily similar suit against her own mother Patricia Carey but that also has neither been proven.
One of those claims that Allison is staunchly denying happens to be the one that Carey says she was sold to a pimp as a teenager by Allison. That claim of course garnered significant headline attention.
Allison has openly been arrested for prostitution in the past. Mariah ‘s own brother, Morgan, previously threatened to sue the music legend over the book over claims that it was intentionally delusional. Those comments reportedly came from a prior interview with The Sun.
‘It’s heartbreaking to witness my little sister’s descent into this hatefully delusional revisionist rant because it is so reminiscent of her unhinged behavior during her first breakdown,’ he said.
‘The so-called “memoir” is laden with lies, distortions and gross revisionism from beginning to end, and I can prove it.
‘When I reveal the truth, the facts and supporting evidence, it will be a very harsh pill for she and her publishers to swallow and rest assured I will be filing a lawsuit.’
