American pop diva Mariah Carey, who rose to popularity with the release of “Visions of Love” from her eponymous debut album seems to have none of that as her sister Alison A. Carey, 55, was arrested last week for prostitution.
She was charged for soliciting money in exchange for sexual favors, after she was caught in a hotel in Saugerties, New York.
According to a report by Huffington Post, Alison Carey told police she was the “obsessed” sister of Mariah Carey after her apprehension when an officer apparently posed as a client to pin her alleged prostitution, which she reportedly posted in online ads.
This isn’t the first time Carey was arrested for the same offense. She has a bit of history from back in 2005, and the Saugerties Police Chief Joseph Sinagra expressed major concern over the matter.
Mariah Carey has been long estranged with her sister, Alison, after the latter wanted to publish a tell-all book regarding her popular sibling.
They have not been in contact since 2010.
Sinagra told reporters that Alison Carey had been diagnosed for HIV, and urged for anyone who may have had sexual contact with her to have themselves checked by their doctors “particularly if it was unprotected” according to a report by People.
A source for the report has said that “Mariah takes care of her entire family and I’m sure this is very painful for her.” But the pop diva still hasn’t commented about the arrest, nor have there been reports of her reaching out to her sister Alison.
In fact, months ago her older brother Morgan Carey slammed her for failing to take care of their dying sister.
Alison Carey had been diagnosed of HIV since 2000 and in 2014 badly needed brain and spinal surgery, but Mariah Carey never showed up at the hospital nor made an effort to contact them.
Morgan calls Mariah an “evil witch.”
“Your sister is dying and she’s struggling and where are you? You think you are so fabulous, but you are a witch.”
