This year isn’t starting off to be a banner one for Mariah Carey. Months after Mariah made headlines for her disastrous performance at NBC’s Christmas in Rockefeller Center special, she’s again in the news for another jaw dropping concert. On Friday, Mimi was in the sunny isle of Jamaica for their Jazz and Blues Festival 2015 and appeared to be belting out her classic 1995, “Fantasy” and let’s just say Ms. Carey may have some explaining to do. A concertgoer caught Mariah’s performance on video and the footage reveals the “songbird supreme” was lip syncing and doing a terrible job at it.
Watch the footage below.
So far, Mariah hasn’t commented on the video and why she was lip syncing. Could her performance have to do with the pending lawsuit brought on by a former nanny? Earlier this week, Simonette DaCosta slapped a lawsuit against Mariah and her soon-to-be ex husband Nick Cannon alleging she was fired as their twins Moroccan and Monroe’s nanny by the diva because she was jealous of her relationship with the children. Simonette claims Mariah didn’t want her children to be confused on who their mother was and also charges she was due overtime for being on-call 24/7 for the children. Maybe Mariah’s a bit stressed with all the legal drama she’s got going on?
Now during Mariah’s NBC performance on Dec. 3, sources claimed the diva was too wrapped up in talks with her lawyer regarding her divorce to Cannon. Mariah arrived three hours late and wasn’t able to tape her performance due to NBC’s head honchos being irked about her lateness. A day later, NBC changed their minds and allowed Mariah to perform with dreadful results.
