Popstar and Christmas Queen, Mariah Carey, is allegedly being sued by her older sister following the release of her personal memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey.

What We Know:

  • Alison Carey, 59, filed a lawsuit Monday in New York demanding $1.25 million for emotional distress caused by the singer’s new book, specifically the chapter titled “Dandelion Tea,” according to PEOPLE, who obtained the court summons.
  • The older Carey claims that she’s fallen back into “alcohol abuse” and has become “uncharacteristically tearful” after the release of her sister’s memoir. In the chapter in question, Mariah, 50, describes an incident when Alison gave her Valium, tried to “pimp her out [,] and threw a cup of boiling hot tea on her.” Alison defends that her sister “presented no evidence to substantiate” the story, which Mariah supposedly disputes. “[Carey] also callously dismisses [Alison] as her ‘ex’ sister,” the summons read.

“But instead of saying no more about her, [Carey] used her book to humiliate and embarrass plaintiff as stories about the memoir appeared in newspapers around the world, on TV and across the Internet, most of them with headlines repeating defendant’s allegations — all of them published without giving [Alison] any opportunity to respond.”

  • After describing her sister as “heartless, vicious, [and] vindictive,” Alison writes that Carey used her “status as a public figure to attack her penniless sister” by fabricating “sensational” headlines about Alison to promote her book.
  • The document also mentions Alison’s diagnosis of PTSD, anxiety, and depression. “Already struggling with the unspeakable trauma of her childhood and having her own children abandon her, she has become severely depressed and uncharacteristically tearful since the publication of defendant’s book and now struggles, after a long time clean, with alcohol abuse,” the document reads.

Alison also states that an offer to settle was sent to Carey’s attorneys, but no response has been received.
