Mariah Carey is being sued by another one of her siblings, Morgan Carey, for falsely accusing him of being a violent person in her memoir, “The Meaning of Mariah Carey.”
Morgan is the second Carey family member to sue her over the book, following Mariah’s sister Alison, who described it as containing “cruel and outrageous allegations.”
In legal documents obtained by TMZ, Morgan alleges that Mariah damaged his reputation when she wrote about an alleged violent struggle he had with their father and an alleged attack against their mother.
The lawsuit includes a passage from the memoir that reads: “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.”
Morgan believes Mariah’s account of the fight portrays him as a violent man and claims actual fights with his father never occurred when Mariah was a child. In either case, he claims that 12 cops would never respond to a domestic violence complaint.
According to the documents, Mariah’s memoir also alleges, “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 it’s all a lie, claiming that many people experienced his “deep affection” for his mother and claims that Mariah contradicted herself later in the book when she recalled her mother saying, “Morgan is the only one I love.”
He’s suing his younger sister for slander and deliberate infliction of emotional distress, and it appears that he’s seeking a large sum of money in damages.
