Mariah Carey's Crazy Ex Admits To Crazy Behavior!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLove LineMariah CareyAmerican IdolThaliaNick Cannon


We'd say that Nick Cannon is a DEFINITE upgrade!

Before Mariah Carey's love story with Nick began, Mariah was married to Tommy Mottola… and we all know how that worked out.

And now, in his effort to make his book a bestseller, the man who credits himself for Mariah's success has admitted that he was obsessive and controlling with the world famous diva!

During an interview on Today about his book Hitmaker: The Man and His Music, Tommy said:

"Well I think that anyone that is successful becomes obsessive with what they are trying to succeed at. If it seemed like I was controlling let me apologize…It was absolutely wrong and inappropriate for me to become involved with Mariah, and I'm not saying this because there was a generation gap, I should [have] listened to the piercing voice of my shrink and maintained my distance."

We wonder if Tommy would've apologize regardless of his new book?!

Probably not!!!

Tommy claims to be a changed man, but just recently, he bashed the diva's decision to join American Idol.

If the 20-year-her-senior record executive is this obsessive with Mariah, we can't even begin to guess how he treated the rest of the singers (*Cough Cough* Michael Jackson) he's worked with!

We're just so glad that she escaped into the arms of sweet Nick!!

We just hope he isn't treating his current wife, Thalia, in the same abusive manner!

    if you look at his current wife she had been moulded to look like Mariah.

    Re: aunt jemima – Mariah had huge success and millions before they married and it would not have made a diffrence if they was not married. Mariah earned Sony records 2 BILLION. The house they built together was paid by both of them and when they divorced the only things Mariah took was a fireplace, her wedding dress and Jack the dog.

    What moron actually believes Mariah was taken advantage off. She wanted to be famous and she found a way to make it happen. Not taking away from her talent because yes her voive is great, however she had no isssue with laying on her back to insure her success.

    Who's using who now?! What happened to the big CEO at Sony, Columbia?! Out doing the rounds desperately promoting his own book and using MiMi to sell?!

    It's sad that this "queen of celebrity gossip" can't even get his story straight…Mariah didn't run to no one's arms. She worked herself out of the hellhole that Sony created for her since 1998!

    As for before that, as they say, it's history, and Mariah made history with it. None the less the company used her for her talents just as she used it to propel her career YET she had the talent to back up and dictate her own contract…therefore she made all her money from her talents and wits unlike those who went bankrupt in the 90s despite selling 10+ million on a record!

    F uck off! the one who claimed to love MiMi (Mottola) got with MSM and the industry to try and break her back in the day but couldn't. Look who's shamelessly using Mariah to promote his sales now?!

    Correct me if I'm wrong but Mariah wasn't even 20 when Vision of Love became a # 1 American pop anthem.

    Re: emma – You are wrong. Her debut album holds the number one spot in the most expensive publicity campaign ever spent in the music industry. Tommy Mottola put every single cent for her album to be heard everywhere all the time. He was the one who choosed which songs were fit for her, etc.
    Thalia has always looked like that, she wasnt moulded to look like her. But it wouldnt surprise me that her slightly resemblance to Mooriah was what attracted him perhaps.
    As usual Perez your zero journalism is fab, you missed the part : ""I have nothing but the greatest respect for her in the world… I feel great about all the things she's achieved as a result of all the work that we did."

    Lol, so it took her like five years to notice he was controlling her?. Awww, poor her, and I thought she got dumb with the age, she was already that dumb.

    Re: TeamMariah – She was already 20 when she had that boring hit. Also please, get out of her *ss, she is a has been, washed up singer. She looks like an ape and is an incredibly boring celeb. She cannot even take that annoying chick Minaj the spotlight in Idol.

    Re: aunt jemima – if you know anything you will know Mariah was forced into a relationship with this man. Don't call her a gold digger. She would have been succesful without Marrying him anyway.

    I gravitated towards a patriarch
    so young
    I was resigned to live my life
    within a maze
    of misery…
    Petals, 1999
