And to think… she was nearly a billionairess!

Mariah Carey is one of the most decorated divas in all of Hollywood, but it turns out that wasn't always the case.

That's because according to the elusive chanteuse herself, she actually used to sleep on just a "mattress on the floor!"

We're just three days away from getting an inside look at Mariah's World, which means it's about time for E! to start promoting the heck out of the docuseries.

Luckily, they did just that on Thursday when they dropped an extended preview of a nostalgia-heavy scene between Mariah and her adult nephew Shawn McDonald reminiscing about their childhoods.

Apparently, when MiMi emancipated herself and moved to Manhattan… she couldn't even afford a box-spring, recalling:

"I think me and Shawn have a great relationship because we both understand what it's like to literally come from nothing. We did not grow up this way, people have to understand this… I lived, like, on a mattress on the floor. I was writing my songs and being a horrible waitress."

Well just look at her now!

TBH, we just can't wait to see if Mariah's reality show holds up in the usual Keeping Up with the Kardashians time slot — because this is guaranteed to be gold.

Ch-ch-check out a sneak peek of Mariah's World before its premiere Sunday, December 4 at 9 p.m. EST on E! (below)!!!
