What happens when “The Queen Bey” and the ultimate “Diva” are in the same room? It was all smiles when Beyoncé and Mariah Carey came together for a gala hosted by the Heartview Global Foundation, an organization dedicated to heart disease research.
Between Beyoncé taking people’s rent money and child support checks in ticket sales for her “Formation” tour and Mariah’s upcoming nuptials to billionaire James Packer, both ladies were able to be extremely generous during the charity auction. Here are the details of how they spent their coins, courtesy of E! News:
“The two attended the event, which included dinner and an auction, to show their support for longtime friend and Heartview founder Jonathon Schwartz, who almost lost his life due to a heart condition, E! News has learned.
Beyoncé and Carey were seated at separate tables next to one another. Both were surrounded by friends.
“Mariah and Beyoncé spent a lot of time chatting and were seen having a good time together,” a source told E! News exclusively. “They both seemed relaxed and enjoying themselves. They both took photos with guests as well as with each other.”
During the auction, both bid on items and both bought portraits of Ray Charles, taken by Timothy White, which sold for $10,000 each. Bey also purchased a six-course chef’s dinner for 12 friends for $15,000.”
While you may have seen some hilarious videos of Mimi shading Jennifer Lopez, Queen Bey and Mariah’s friendship dates back over ten years.
According to E!, “In 2003, the two joined Donatella Versace at the designer’s spring / summer fashion show during Milan Fashion Week.
Then in 2008, Beyoncé performed onstage with Carey and other artists, such as Miley Cyrus, Rihanna and Mary J. Blige, at Condé Nast’s annual Fashion Rocks event at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.”
Beyoncé and Jay-Z also attended Mariah’s #1 To Infinity concert in Vegas last fall. We love seeing that there’s no bad blood between two living legends. We’re patiently waiting for the day that they record a song together!
