Mariah Carey Blasted By ’90s Group Allure After She Leaves Them Out Of Her Memoir: It’s Sickening Being Treated Like We Never Existed
Nineties group Allure is taking issue with not being mentioned in Mariah Carey’s new memoir The Meaning of Mariah.
In her book, Mariah Carey opened up about Crave, a boutique record label that her ex-husband, then President of Sony Music Tommy Mottola, created for her.
Mariah Carey didn’t mention Allure in her book but instead said Crave was a short-lived project that ended as her marriage to Tommy Mottola was reaching its final days. She added that the best thing about Crave was that it led to a member of The Negro League, who Carey said was the first act signed to Crave, starring as the love interest in her feature for Jermaine Dupri’s Sweetheart.
Allure called out Mariah Carey on Instagram Sunday (Oct. 11th). They uploaded an audio version of Carey discussing Crave, without any reference to Allure, and included a vintage video of Mariah Carey recognizing the group as one of Crave’s artists.
“For years we’ve always taken the high road. When it came to our career. Dealt with people having their own opinions about what went down with us and Mariah. Hearing rumors that one of us assaulted her. People saying we were bitter. At the end of the day we have and will always feel strongly about principle.”
They shared their side and added:
“You had a label and we were your first act. We remember people always saying, “You guys were like the wall paper at crave”. Shared moments and trusted you with our lives while also spending time with you and you sharing with us. Never did we ever compromise that. We’ve always stayed Quiet and been nice about everything although we didn’t receive the same back.”
“One thing that’s sickening is being treated as if we never existed. How does anyone blatantly lie and totally disregard people who were a huge part of your life and your career..between us and 7 Mile… that’s all anyone ever talked about.”
They went on to slam Mariah Carey for not checking on them after things went left.
“…Ever even cared to even see how we were after everything was said and done. We would have Been ok with you never mentioning the label at all….we were close to you …like sisters…but to actually mention the label and completely disregard us and our accolades and what we brought to the table as your “FIRST ARTISTS” is a slap in the face… the only sweet deal left from crave was a conquest with one of your artist? Wow…talk about priorities! Good to know! Lol UNREAL! We were Crave! Congratulations…You Played yourself!!!!”
