Mariah Careys massively sued for ‘emotional distresses by sister
Feb 04 2021
Alison Carey claims she has suffered emotional distress from allegations Mariah made about her in her 2020 book, "The Meaning of Mariah", and she wants at least $1.25 million (£910,000) in compensation.
The following year, Alison was sued for millions after allegedly hitting a man with her auto and almost killing him.
Alison's lawsuit states she has been diagnosed with PTSD, anxiety and depression and has had to seek therapy due "the horrific abuse" she experienced in her youth.
Alison - who does not have a lawyer on the case, and is representing herself - claims her crooner sister never gave her an opportunity to respond to the claims in the book nor did she present "evidence to substantiate" the allegations, which Alison "disputes", the court papers say.
Before concluding her appeal, Alison also pointed out that Carey allegedly abused her "status as a public figure to attack her penniless sister" with "sensational" headlines.
"In response, her sister is requesting a huge payout: "[Alison] Plaintiff will demand an amount no less than $1.25 million compensation for the infliction of vast emotional distress caused by defendant's heartless, vicious, vindictive, despicable and totally unnecessary public humiliation of defendant's already profoundly damaged older sister". The book describes a contentious and deeply estranged relationship between the superstar and her sibling.
"Large sisters are supposed to guard you, not pimp you out", Carey writes at one level, contending that Alison left her in the corporate of a boyfriend who put strikes on her after they had been left alone collectively. One thing in me was arrested by all that trauma. "That is why I often say, 'I'm eternally 12.' I am still struggling through that time". "They have always thought that my life was easy". The singer has said in interviews that she is looking toward having the memoir adapted into a feature film or limited series.
There was an offer sent to Mariah's attorneys, however, there's been no response.
