Mariah Carey's older sister Alison Carey is suing the singer for "immense emotional distress" that she says was caused by remarks in the diva’s book. Keep reading as we reveal the incredible claims within the pages of “The Meaning of Mariah Carey”!
Mariah Carey’s estranged sister Alison has filed a $1.25 million lawsuit against the diva for "intentionally causing her immense emotional distress" with statements in her autobiography.
Alison Carey is seeking compensation from Mariah for what she called: vindictive, despicable, and totally unnecessary public humiliation of her in the memoir.
The allegations refer to claims published in the book that the sister gave 12-year-old Mariah Valium, offered her cocaine, burned her by throwing a cup of boiling tea on her, and even tried to pimp her out.
Alison who was 20 at the time denied the claims, saying that Mariah did not present any evidence to substantiate these serious accusations. She filed a legal complaint at New York Supreme Court on Monday 1st February.
“Mariah used her status as a public figure to attack her penniless sister, generating sensational headlines describing her lurid claims to promote sales of her book.”
Alison also accused their mother of forcing satanic rituals and abuse at a young age. She is suffering from depression due to childhood trauma and since the publication of the defendant’s book and now she is struggling after a long time clean, from alcohol abuse.
The superstar has not yet responded to the lawsuit. In her memoir "The Meaning of Mariah Carey," the songstress described numerous occasions when she believes Alison put her life at risk. Her sister has denied the claims and stated that she was appalled that Mariah would accuse her of pimping her out.
