Mariah Carey’s estranged sister sues her for $1.25million over ‘vicious, vindictive, despicable’ lies in her
The book also claimed that her brother was physically abusive, one of her mum’s boyfriends threatened
to kill her and that Alison threw boiling tea on her.
Alison – who does not have a lawyer in the case and is representing herself – claims she was publicly
humiliated by the alleged family secrets.
She claimed her famed sister never allowed her to respond to the events in the book,
and didn’t present “evidence to substantiate” the allegations according to legal documents obtained
by TMZ.Alison also has post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and depression and said that despite
Mariah having prior knowledge of her sister’s mental health, the singer “used her status as a public
figure to attack her penniless sister, generating sensational headlines describing lurid claims to promote
sales of her book”.
Alison said she offered to settle the claims with Mariah’s lawyers on January 8 but according to
court documents, she never heard back.
She is now demanding $1.25 million for claims of “intentional infliction of immense emotional distress
caused by the defendant’s heartless, vicious, vindictive, despicable, and unnecessary public humiliation
of defendant’s’ already profoundly damaged older sister.”
In November Mariah’s brother Morgan, 60, told The Sun his sisters recounts in the book were “delusional”
and he was also planning to sue.
