- Alison Carey, Mariah Carey's older sister, has accused the singer of making up stories to promote her new book
- The singer had accused Alison of drugging her amongst other things in her book, The Meaning Of Mariah Carey
- Alison is not taking the claims which she described as 'heartless, vicious, vindictive, and totally unnecessary' lightly
- If things favour the older sister, the singer might have to cough up R19 million which she is being sued for
American singer, Mariah Carey has been dragged to court by her older sister, Alison Carey, who is suing the singer for R19 million over allegations about her which were published in the singer's book, The Meaning Of Mariah Carey, Daily Mail reports.
In the book, Mariah claims her older sister 'gave her Valium, tried to pimp her out and threw a cup of boiling hot tea on her, causing third-degree burns' at 12-years-old.
Reacting to the claims, Alison, 60, said the allegations are heartless, vicious, vindictive, despicable and totally unnecessary'.
According to Alison, the 50-year-old singer fabricated the stories to promote sales of her tell-all book and offered no evidence to substantiate her claims, according to legal documents obtained.
Alison - who is HIV+ - said Mariah was aware she was suffering from spine and digestive disorders and a traumatic brain injury, short term memory problems and vision problems after being attacked in 2015 in an 'unsolved home invasion.'
The 60-year-old who was arrested for soliciting prostitution in the past, also said she was struggling with alcohol abuse after having been sober for a long time.
According to Alison, the singer knew this yet decided to use her status as a famous person to make up false stories to promote her book.
Mariah is world-renowned for her singing abilities and also for being a diva who knows when and how to dish out the sass.
The star a while ago shaded then-outgoing US President Donald Trump by posting an internet meme of herself.
The meme was made up of a caption saying "GTFO" and a GIF of the star herself mouthing the words "Get The F*ck Out", presumably referring to Donald Trump getting out of the White House and American politics in general.
