Mariah Carey's sister sues over tell-all memoir

Mariah Carey's sister sues over tell-all memoir

According to reports, Mariah Carey is being sued by her estranged sister Alison Carey, who claims she suffered emotional distress after Mariah made allegations of abuse about her in the 2020 book 'The Meaning of Mariah'. The stories include an incident when Mariah Carey says her sister gave her Valium and attempted to "pimp her out and threw a cup of boiling hot tea on her", with Alison Carey pointing out that she never had an opportunity to tell her side of the story.

Some of the things Mariah shares in her memoir include that she grew up in a violent household, Christmas wasn't a happy time for her growing up and also that her older sister once drugged her when she 12 during a creepy auto ride (with Alison's boyfriend).

She cited trauma stemming from the alleged "satanic" abuse she suffered at the hands of their mother Patricia, which are the subject of another suit Alison Carey filed against her mom past year.

Alison is claiming that Mariah intentionally inflicted "emotional distress" on her with the inclusion of several stories in her recently published memoir. Now, Alison is suing Mariah for "intentional infliction of enormous emotional distress".

Despite knowing about the problems that Alison faces, Mariah "used her status as a public figure to attack her penniless sister, generating sensational headlines describing lurid claims to promote sales of her book", the suit alleges.

Speaking on Oprah Winfrey's Apple TV+ series The Oprah Conversation in September, Mariah said of her relationship with her older sibling: "We don't even really know each other... we didn't grow up together, but we did". Now, she wants $1.25 million from Mariah for being responsible for her "despicable and totally unnecessary public humiliation".
