Alison Carey, the sister of mega-star Mariah Carey, wants to make contact with her sibling after a long period of separation. Alison, 50, a former drug addict and prostitute, wants to heal a rift and meet her one-year-old niece and nephew Moroccan and Monroe.
“I cannot put into words how moved I was to see pictures of my niece and nephew for the first time. I saw photographs of them on the television just after they were born and I saw more when they turned one recently…I just wish Mariah would let me be her sister again and a proper auntie to her children,” she explains to The Sun magazine.
A combination of “dembabies” and a recent cancer scare may have prompted the need to reach out to her famous singer sibling. She tells The Sun “I reached out to Mariah last year when a doctor told me I had liver cancer and only four months left to live. A relative told me Mariah decided she wanted to reconcile and she would pay for my treatment. But I never heard from her. It turned out to be nothing more than a gallstone. But it would have been nice if my sister had been there for me.”
The recovering drug addict reassures she’s doing better and promises that things will be different from now on. The only thing missing, she says, is her sister’s presence in her life.
“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.”
