Mariah Carey Says Derek Jeter Was A ‘Catalyst’ In Divorce From Tommy Mottola

Published: Thursday 24th Sep 2020 by Ryan

Mariah Carey is spilling new details about her romance with former baseball player Derek Jeter.

In a recently released clip from the new episode of Apple TV+ show, ‘The Oprah Conversations,’ Mimi sat down with Oprah Winfrey and revealed that he was the “catalyst” for her divorce from Tommy Mottola.

Her words below:

“He was a catalyst that helped me get out of that relationship because I believed there was somebody else. It was the racial situation, his mom is Irish, his dad is Black. But he was also very ambiguous looking to me. I didn’t know who he was, we met and I’ve written songs about it.”

I don’t think it was like, ‘Oh my god, he was the love of my life.’ Like, at the time I did, because I didn’t think I would ever meet anybody who wouldn’t…what’s the word? I used the word, I just thought about this last night. Not looked down on but feel superior to me because of the fact that I’m not one way or another in most people’s minds, and they have preconceived notions, whatever.” 

The Songbird Supreme recently revealed which two songs she wrote about her romance with Jeter. ‘My All’ and ‘The Roof’ from her 1997 ‘Butterfly’ album were about the pair’s romance.

More details will be revealed when her memoir, ‘The Meaning of Mariah Carey’ hits stores next week.

    I’m excited for this book. Can’t wait to read about the breakdown and how she managed to have one of the greatest career comebacks ever. I want to hear how she felt when the Emancipation of MiMi took off and reinvigorated her career. I also want to hear about that billionaire she was engaged to a few years ago…how big was the peen, MiMi?
