Mariah Carey opened up about her early years in a chat with popular host Oprah Winfrey to promote her autobiography “The Meaning of Mariah Carey” due out at the end of September.
The least we can say is that the singer had a complicated childhood.
“When I was 12 my sister (Allison) drugged me with valium, gave me a false nail full of cocaine, gave me third degree burns and tried to sell me to a pimp. “, Explains the American singer in a passage from her book read by Oprah during her show” The Oprah Conversation “.
“We don’t even really know each other. We didn’t grow up together. They had already been through a lot when I was born. But again, I wasn’t there, ”Mariah Carey said in reference to her brother and sister.
“I was thrown into this world and literally felt like an outsider in my own family. They had grown up experiencing having a black father and a white mother as a family and I mostly lived with my mother whom they saw as someone easier, but who in reality was not. . They always believed my life was easy, ”she added.
During the show, the diva referred to her sister and brother as her “ex-brother” and “ex-sister” and also referred to her mother using her first name (Patricia).
Mariah Carey’s family got the news a few months ago when her sister Allison sued their mother, accusing her of sexually assaulting her as a child.
In her complaint, she accuses him of having “authorized and encouraged men whose identity is unknown today to have sexual acts” with her when she was around 10 years old.
