However, Mimi’s autobiographical venture hasn’t come without controversy.
Because, after writing candidly about her relationship with her siblings, the diva’s older sister Alison Carey has filed a lawsuit against her alleging emotional distress.
Full story below…
According to TMZ, Alison is suing her famous sister for $1.25 million.
She argues that Mariah has presented no evidence to support the various claims made about her in the book. These include the notion that she “gave [Mariah] Valium, tried to pimp her out and threw a cup of boiling hot tea on her causing third-degree burns” when Mariah was 12.
Per Alison, she feels the songbird deliberately ignored her trauma; trauma she says stems from the alleged abuse she suffered at the hands of their mother as a child.
Last year, Alison sued their Mom for sexual abuse and claimed that the matriarch subjected her to satanic rituals and sexual activity at a young age.
Alison, who says she suffered a fall that led to a brain injury in 2015, argues that Mariah ignored her predicament and “used her status as a public figure to attack her penniless sister” to plug the book.
Trouble has long plagued the life of Alison, who has been arrested for prostitution and other offences. She has multiple health issues also.
This wouldn’t mark the first time Alison has publicly lambasted Mariah. Both she and brother Morgan Carey have taken to the press many times.
