Fans of überdiva Mariah Carey (50) have been looking forward to it for months, but her memoirs have finally been published today. The songbird put a free box of tissues with the first copies of ‘The Meaning of Mariah Carey’ and that turned out for a reason. Entertainment expert Eric de Munck has already read the book and selected five shocking and sad revelations for you.
“By the time I was a toddler I had already developed the instinct to sense when violence was on the way”
1. Mariah slept for years with a to-go bag under her bed during her first marriage
A great deal of it The Meaning of Mariah Carey is about her first marriage to Sony Music boss Tommy Mottola, 21 years her senior. “There was never really a strong sexual or physical attraction,” she writes. “But I gave him my job and my confidence.”
Mariah writes that she slept with a to-go bag under her bed, stocked with necessities in case she needed to escape quickly. The house she lived in with Tommy was “fully staffed with armed guards” in addition to the security cameras installed in most of the rooms. When she went to the kitchen to write lyrics, she creaked ‘Watcha doin?’ through the speaker.

2. She grew up with domestic violence
“By the time I was a toddler, I had already developed the instinct to sense when violence was coming,” reads Mariah’s book. “As if I were smelling rain, I could tell when the screams of adults had reached a certain intensity, forcing me to take cover.”
She can remember countless arguments, one of which lingered enormously: the moment her brother hit her mother against the wall with such force that it sounded “like a gunshot.”
The then six-year-old Mariah called a friend who then alerted the police. One of the officers, speaking to another officer next to him, said, “If this kid makes it, it will be a miracle.” That was the night I became less of a child and yet more of a miracle, ”Carey said.

3. She was treated like an ATM with a wig on by her family
Despite the fact that Mariah has dedicated her book to her mother, she has a more than clouded relationship with her and her brother and sister. She calls her mother only by her first name Patricia (Pat) and describes her sister and brother as ex-sister and ex-brother. She has the necessary reasons for this.
“When I was 12 years old, my sister drugged me with Valium, offered me a nail full of cocaine, got me third degree burns and tried to sell me to a pimp,” Mariah writes. “Once I became a household name in the music industry, my family treated me like an ATM with a wig on.”

4. She tries to do things completely differently with her own children
After all Carey went through in her own childhood, she writes that she sincerely thought she would never have children. That changed when she got into a relationship with Nick Cannon; that’s why they got married so quickly, she writes in her book. Mariah’s pregnancy was not a cat’s piss: she says she gained a lot of weight and developed gestational diabetes.
The combination of Cannon’s mother and the recording of her second Christmas album got her through the most intense moments. Now that her children are 9 years old and growing like crazy, Mariah has agreed with herself to give them what she never had herself.
They have countless memories and images of being together with two loving parents. Their lives have never been endangered. The police never stormed our house, ”she writes. ‘They don’t live in fear. They never had to escape. They don’t try to destroy each other. My children are happy. ‘

5. She lifts a corner of the veil of what went wrong around megaflop Glitter
Mariah Carey’s film debut, Glitter, was a huge flop in 2001 to say the least. The film was released on September 11 of that year, also the moment when Mariah was in a deep trough. In fact, she writes that when the two planes crashed into the Twin Towers she was in a clinic to recover from mental and physical exhaustion.
She actually wanted to rest at her mother’s house, but she immediately called the police and had her daughter admitted. She also points to her now ex-husband Mottola, who is said to have sabotaged the film. Her acting coach would also have wanted the worst for her.
