American Idol Finalist Denies Mariah Carey's 'Nightmare' Behavior!

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteMariah CareyAmerican Idol

News broke this week that new American Idol judge Mariah Carey was quite the diva when she appeared as a guest mentor during the show's seventh season. Inside sources accused her of being a "nightmare to work with" who was "not very nice at all."

But apparently the reports weren't true at all!

Carly Smithson, who finished the reality competition in sixth place during that season, has told us that those allegations are simply "not true." The frontwoman for rock band We Are The Fallen recently tweeted:

Aww. Thanks for the love and understanding, gurl! And thanks for giving us the truth!

While others on set may have had a completely different experience with Mariah, it sounds like she wasn't the terror that some have made her out to be.

Do U believe Carly's side of the story or the insiders who wish to remain anonymous?

    I like her but I also believe she is a nightmare and major headache to be around.

    Carly wants someone to take her quote. AI Must LOVE Divas behavior if they employed miss Carey and who cares?? I will say once again I just started watching AI, but I will not watch MC"S incoherent baby talk. It was funny w/ Paula…MC, not so much.

    Since Carly Smithson's career has TANKED isn't she the live-in nanny & house-keeper to Mariah?

    Carly Smithson is prettier, cooler & younger looking than Carly Jepson. Better voice too. I love Carly Smithson's tattoos. She looks so badass. Carly Jepson is a 26 year old creeper who chases teenage boys. Carly Smithson, on the other hand, is the lead singer for one of the best new rock bands in the world. Smithson has all the talent of Amy Lee & less than 10% of the diva attitude.

    Eat me bc..had she been a nightmare-the story would have been talked about in that year. here we are years later and the gossip ppl have to make a dollar smashing celebrities.

    If she was a nightmare as the rumors state, I doubt they would ask her to be on the show. There are many other people that could have filled the postion, common sense really

    Here's a good idea - ask Justin Bieber what she was like to be around when they shot their video for the Christmas song they did together. He'll tell you…. and it won't be pretty.
