Alison Carey, older sister of Mariah Carey made the news recently. Unlike her famous sister it was not for music or entertainment news. On August 26, 2016 she was arrested on a charge of prostitution.
Carey who is 55 years old had been prostituting out of a hotel in Saugerties, New York for about a week. She advertised her services using online ads. When she was arrested she told them she was Mariah Carey’s sister. The police chief, Joseph Sinagra was able to confirm she was telling the truth by doing an internet search.
In one of her ads posted on Friday she used lines from Mariah’s hit from 1995,”Fantasy.” The ad reportedly said “according to The Daily Freeman
“I’m a pretty lady looking for guys who are looking to have some fun and get into a world of pleasure that other woman just cant provide too you, woman with the ability to make the earth move for you and to get you to see stars, “Oh yea with me its, ‘ITS SUCH A SWEET, SWEET FANTASY BABY, WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES I COME AND TAKE YOU ON AND ON.”
Police have not released the name of the website or the hotel she was prostituting at. They did say that they received a tip about the ads.
Alison created a video earlier this year pleading with her sister Mariah to help her. The video was released in March by the Daily Mail. She said “Mariah, I love you. I desperately need your help. Please don’t abandon me like this.” Maybe it is possible her sister called in the tip as a way to get Alison some help.
The sisters have been estranged from each other for years, and they also have a brother, Morgan Carey.
Carey is due in court on Tuesday, August 30th. She was arraigned in Saugerties Town Court and sent to Ulster County Jail.
Alison Carey is HIV positive and police are urging anyone who has had sex with her to contact their doctor’s.
