Too little, too late?
Mariah Carey's estranged sister Alison Carey Scott hasn't spoken to her sibling in fifteen years.
Allison hopes to change that before it's too late.
Here's what she said:
"I want to reach out to my sister and tell her how much I miss her and how proud I am that we are family… I cannot put into words how moved I was to see pictures of my niece and nephew for the first time. I just wish Mariah would let me be her sister again and a proper auntie to her children."
A former drug addict and prostitute, Allison is also HIV positive, but claims all she wants is to have a relationship with her sister again.
Here's what she also said:
"I've had my problems over the years but I want to tell Mariah I have been clean and sober for four months now and I am absolutely determined to keep my life on track. I really want our family to be together again, and watch my children playing with hers. If I had a message it would be, 'Just call me'."
We sure hope this family is able to reunite, and support each other.
It sounds like Mariah's sister just wants to be a part of her niece and nephew's life which seems reasonable.
We're not sure why they haven't spoken to each other in so long, but we're guessing whatever set them off wasn't pretty.
