Mariah’s estranged sister Alison has launched a lawsuit against their mother Patricia, claiming Patricia forced her to perform sex acts on strangers when she was a little girl.

Mariah Carey‘s sister Alison is suing their mother Patricia for allegedly sexually abusing her as a child.

In the lawsuit, filed at the State of New York Supreme Court, the 57-year-old claims Patricia forced her to perform sex acts on strangers when she was just 10 years old.

“Defendant, who is Plaintiff’s mother, allowed and encouraged other male persons whose identities are at present unknown to engage in sexual acts as defined in New York Penal Law, specifically 130.52 (forcible touching), and 130.65 (sexual assault in the first degree), while Plaintiff was approximately 10 years of age,” the lawsuit reads.

In addition, Alison claims she was also forced to watch other children being abused in “middle-of-the-night satanic worship meetings that included ritual sacrifices.”

As a result of the alleged incidents, Alison – who once worked as a prostitute and is HIV positive – claims she suffers from both post-traumatic stress disorder and depression, “leading her to misuse both legal and illegal drugs in an attempt to suppress the horrific memories, and to undergo extensive professional counselling.”

She’s now seeking “compensatory money damages for immense psychological and physical damage, mental pain and anguish and intentional infliction of severe emotion distress.”

Alison is estranged from her superstar sister. Mariah has not commented on her sibling’s allegations.

The Rolling Stones member opens up about the moment he realized it was time to get clean, while his bandmate Mick Jagger talks in ‘Somebody Up There Likes Me’ about the guitarist’s initial struggles.

Ronnie Wood vowed to get clean and give up drugs and booze after realising his vices were turning him into an unpleasant, “sour person”.

The Rolling Stones star gets candid about his addiction and sobriety in new documentary “Somebody Up There Likes Me (2020)“, which chronicles the guitarist’s amazing life and career, and reveals one last bender made him realise it was time to quit – and get help.

“Nothing was working,” he says in the film. “The coke wasn’t working. The drink wasn’t working. (I) tried one more to see if I could cut through it and I turned into this sour person. I thought, ‘This is not me’. Took the brave move again, but this time for myself, to try and abstain and clean up my act.”


Bandmate Mick Jagger admits Wood struggled with sobriety at first – but really wanted to get clean.

“It’s really hard to do,” the singer says in the film, “but he knew that he wanted to do it, which is obviously part of the thing. If you don’t want to do it, it’s really impossible. But he wanted to do it and found it really difficult to do.”

The Mike Figgis-directed documentary is now available digitally in many territories and Wood reveals the title came from the phrase he used after cancer surgery added years to his life.

“When they operated on my cancer, they took away my emphysema,” he says in the film. “They said my lungs were as if I’d never smoked. I thought…, ‘Somebody up there likes me!'”
