In what can be only classified as “shocking,” Mariah Carey‘s estranged brother, Morgan, has come forward with a jaw-dropping tell all about his Grammy winning sister.
A reported former drug addict himself, Morgan – a la Latoya Jackson – is slamming the ‘Vision of Love’ singer for alleged alcoholism and drug abuse in a recent interview. The model-turned-fitness trainer even went as far as to compare the diva to her late pop icon friend Whitney Houston, saying she will die if her habits continue on their destructive path.

‘[She] is struggling on a number of levels. She does not have a support system and is not mentally capable. Mariah was drinking through her pregnancy – even while she was nursing. I can’t say that I have ever been around her when she was sober and that’s very scary.’
“If she turns up dead…I’m not going to look the other way. She’ll die just like Whitney Houston.”
Her brother also alleges, in addition to alcoholism, the singer is struggling with an addiction to prescription pain killers, anti-depressants, and other medications like Zyprexa and Ativan. Addictions, he claims, stem from her 2001 breakdown.
He also weighed in on the singer’s marriage to Nick Cannon, claiming the funnyman was laughing all the way to the bank at Mariah’s expense.
“Nick was there for the cash from day one. He doesn’t give a damn about Mariah. [He] took tremendous advantage of her and continues to do so.”
Morgan did mention that he has not spoken to or seen his hitmaking sister in two years.
