Mariah Carey’s estranged brother sues over singer’s memoir

Morgan Carey claims his superstar sister falsely painted him as a violent man in her 2020 autobiography

Mariah Carey is facing another family legal dispute after her estranged brother filed suit over allegations made in her memoir.

Morgan Carey claims his superstar sister falsely painted him as a violent man in her 2020 autobiography, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, in which the singer described a struggle between him and their father, which sparked a call to the police.

According to court papers obtained by TMZ, Mariah wrote in the book, “It took twelve cops to pull my brother and father apart. The big bodies of men, all entangled like a swirling hurricane, crashed loudly into the living room.

“I was a little girl with very few memories of a big brother who protected me. More often, I felt I had to protect myself from him, and sometimes I would find myself protecting my mother from him too.”

She also recalled an incident in which he is accused of shoving their mom against a wall: “Suddenly there was a loud, sharp noise, like an actual gunshot. My brother had pushed my mother with such force that her body slammed into the wall, making a loud cracking sound.”

Morgan insists he never physically fought with their dad when Mariah was a child, and disputes her account of the alleged attack on their mom, because there are many witnesses who can attest to the “deep affection” mother and son share.

He also argues Mariah contradicts her own claims by later recalling how their mom once said, “Morgan is the only one I love.”

Morgan is seeking undisclosed damages for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress from the Hero hitmaker, whose representatives have yet to comment on the lawsuit.
