Mariah Carey’s brother criticizes her as vindictive in court documents
Mariah Carey’s brother criticized his famous sister for “glorifying his excessive alcohol consumption” and his “vindictive nature”, according to new court documents filed in his defamation lawsuit against the star.
Morgan Carey, 61, has filed the scathing response in his March lawsuit against Mariah Carey – in which he accuses her of calling him violent in his new memoir “The Meaning of Mariah Carey.”
The pop star responded to the allegations in May, saying it was in the public interest to share stories from her childhood in order to inspire troubled youth.
But Morgan laughed at his little sister’s defense.
“It’s especially ironic to hear Mariah say her intention was not to defame me, but rather to inspire troubled youth,” Morgan wrote in an affidavit filed Tuesday in Manhattan Supreme Court. “It comes from someone whose public behavior includes glorifying his heavy drinking and inventing the now popular term ‘splash’, along with other behaviors that would be in bad taste to mention here.”
Morgan Carey also pointed out that the “Fantasy” singer might have remembered her health issues with cerebral palsy, grand mal epilepsy and the fact that one of her legs is shorter than the other – if she really wanted to inspire children, the court say the newspapers.
“This detail is clearly missing, which clearly shows that ‘inspiration’ was not on the agenda,” the Morgan Carey affidavit alleges. “Mariah’s agenda simply focused on book sales and her image, all at my expense without regard to the truth or to my well-being.”
The brother also tried to send his brother’s words back to her, claiming that when she told Oprah that her family “drew first blood” it proved that she wanted to hurt him with her book.
And its editors “would not ignore its controversial and vindictive nature as it has attacked many entertainment industry icons like Jennifer Lopez, Eminem, Madonna and Christina Aguilera,” the affidavit states, noting that she has gone through a twenty managers during his career. .
Morgan says that “the real evidence, the timelinesâ¦ the witnesses and the story will corroborate my testimony.”
âThe public humiliation of Mariah’s unfounded and false attacks will forever color my professional and personal interactions and will forever be a bell that cannot be rung,â the affidavit concludes.
Mariah’s attorney did not immediately return a request for comment.
The 51-year-old celebrity faces a similar lawsuit filed by her sister Alison Carey. This case is still pending.
