Mariah Carey: New book could reveal truth behind sexual harassment case, mental health battles and James Packer split
Some fans were seen cheering while others looked very confused before Mariah confirmed, 'Well, my book’s coming out, you can read all about it!'
It looks like Mariah Carey is ready to spill the beans as the 'Fantasy' singer, during a performance in New York City on Monday, made the huge announcement to her fans and followers that she was in the process of writing a tell-all book about her life.
She had just sung the song 'Fantasy' when she paused to ask the audience whether they knew that she had gone to beauty school. Some fans were seen cheering while others looked very confused before Mariah said, "Well, my book’s coming out, you can read all about it!"
So while we wait for her upcoming book to hit stands and online sites, here's a list of all that could find mention in it, from her sexual harassment case to her battle with being bipolar, among many other things:
1. Busted for a re-surfaced photograph

She was called out for posting a 1997 photograph of herself and claiming that it was taken in the present, in the year 2014. Mariah was left embarrassed after she was flat out busted for sharing the 1997 picture to her Twitter with a message which read, "Quality time with #dembabies...so much happiness!!" However, 17 years before she posted the picture, the same youthful picture was broadcast on an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show. At the time, Mariah was around 27 years old.
2. Being diagnosed with Bipolar disorder
She had a psychotic break in 2016 when she was diagnosed as being bipolar. One night in 2016, she apparently had a psychotic break and dressed in a ball gown and tiara as she believed that Prince, Michael Jackson, and Whitney Houston (who were all dead at the time) were coming to her house for a dinner party.
3. Her explosive break up with her ex James Packer
James Packer and Mariah Carey fell in love very quickly and decided to get engaged within months of dating. The couple ran into problems soon after getting engaged and argued over their prenup among other things. James alleged that he was going through a very dark phase in life and Mariah's demands were not easy to deal with. Eventually, it all got too overwhelming and the couple called it quits in 2016.
4. She had a sexual harassment lawsuit for alleged constant nudity
Mariah Carey had settled a lawsuit with her former manager who accused the diva of parading around naked on several occasions, making her uncomfortable. Stella Stolper claimed that Mariah was often naked in her presence. Stolper's attorney did not say whether the ex-manager had accepted any cash payoff.
5. Her sister was busted for prostitution in New York
Mariah's older sister Alison Carey who was allegedly advertising her services online was arrested and also charged with prostitution at an upscale hotel in New York City. In one of her posts, she even quoted Mariah's song 'Fantasy' along with two photos of herself. Carey had to appear in the Saugerties Town Court and was then sent to the Ulster County Jail where she was held on a $1,000 bail. She was arrested after an undercover police officer decided to pose as a client.
6. Mariah Carey's son Moroccan vomited on Michelle Obama's dress
Mariah Carey revealed that her son Moroccan had vomited on Michelle Obama's dress at a White House Christmas tree lighting ceremony in 2013. Little Moroccan puked on the first lady who reportedly then told the child that she would never be able to wear the dress again. Carey was reportedly left feeling "humiliated" and shared with Andy Cohen, "Rocky spit up on Michelle Obama's dress, and it was one of the most humiliating things that ever happened to me. She was like, 'Thanks to you, I'll never be able to wear this dress again, Rocky. So thank you'."
7. She was accused of lip-syncing at the AMA's
When she took to the stage to perform at the AMA's, the 48-year-old was seen sporting a dress with a massive train from which 12 shirtless male dancers emerged. Even though her performance got a lot of applause, many people slammed her performance on social media and questioned whether she was lip-syncing the whole time.
8. Mariah Carey's time in beauty school
Now that's a known fact since Mariah openly revealed that she had gone through beauty school during her New York City concert on March 25. The singer had just finished singing 'Fantasy' when she paused and asked the audience if they knew that she had gone to beauty school. She then shared, "Well, my book’s coming out, you can read all about it!" hinting that she would definitely be talking about that time in her life.
