As reported, Mariah Carey dropped out of Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf.” Here’s what Tyler Perry had to say on his web site:
“Anyway, I’m there on vacation, celebrating life, thanking God and just relaxing when I get a message that I have to come home, that Mariah has dropped out of the film! I said “What? You’re kidding? It’s five days before she has to go to work, nobody does that. We have a deal. IT’S FIVE DAYS BEFORE SHE IS SUPPOSED TO GO TO WORK! So, I got on the plane and came home and started trying to re-cast this major role in the film.
I land and get to the studio, and I’m like, what happened? I was told that we got a call, saying that even though our deal was done, she had been advised by her doctor not to do the film. I said “What? You know I want a doctor’s note, don’t you?!”…LOL
But to tell you the truth, I don’t know what that means and, unlike the tabloids, I won’t speculate. All I know is that I’m waiting just like the rest of the world to find out what happened.
In spite of this, what you need to know is that I am a huge Mariah Carey fan and always will be. What I do know of the woman is that she is a professional and wouldn’t back out of a deal unless it was a major issue. So, whatever is going on, I wish her and Nick the best, and she has all my love, prayers and support. I just wish I could have finished my Mai Tai before I had to get back and re-cast this role!”
