In a court summons filed on Monday in New York, Mariah Carey's older sister Alison, 59, seeks $1.25 million as she alleges that the legendary singer, 50, intentionally inflicted "emotional distress" on her with the inclusion of several stories in the star's tell-all memoir.
Describing Mariah Carey as heartless, vicious and vindictive, Alison Carey claims that she's fallen back into alcohol abuse and has become uncharacteristically tearful following the book's September release.
Citing a chapter in Mariah Carey's book, where the singer describes an incident when Alison gave her Valium, tried to "pimp her out and threw a cup of boiling hot tea on her," Alison's summons states Mariah Carey "presented no evidence to substantiate" the story, which Carey's sister disputes.
The court paperwork also states that Alison Carey has been diagnosed with PTSD, anxiety and depression and has had to seek therapy to cope with "the horrific abuse" she faced in her youth, referring to "terrifying middle-of-the-night satanic worship meetings" she says their mother forced her to attend. The document also cites some of her other health conditions.
