The Top Story
Mariah Carey’s self-described “profoundly damaged” older sister has filed a lawsuit against the pop star, claiming she was publicly humiliated when Carey revealed alleged family secrets in a memoir last year.
Last September, the “Always Be My Baby” singer published the book called The Meaning of Mariah Carey, alleging that older sister Alison Carey drugged her when she was a kid, that her brother was physically abusive, and that one of her mom’s boyfriends threatened to kill Carey and her mom for leaving him.
In the chapter titled “Dandelion Tea,” Mariah alleged that when she was 12 years old, then-20-year-old Alison drugged her with Valium and let Carey go on a disturbing car ride with one of the elder sibling’s boyfriends, who was carrying a gun. Mariah also says Alison burned her by throwing boiling tea on her, according to her Manhattan Supreme Court summons filed Monday.
Alison — who does not have a lawyer in the case and is representing herself — claims her crooner sister never gave her an opportunity to respond to the claims in the book, nor did she present “evidence to substantiate” the allegations, which Alison “disputes,” the court papers say.
