The fur is set to fly as singer Mariah Carey gets her claws into celebs – and her own family – in a new autobiography.

Mariah, 50, promises to lift the lid on her many feuds and clashes with stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Madonna and Nicki Minaj.

A source revealed: “She isn’t going to hold back.”

Speaking about The Meaning Of Mariah Carey, which is out on Tuesday, the diva said: “I cried ­writing this book.

“I’m sure a lot of people will be upset with me.”


In the past, Mariah has insisted that J.Lo does not exist, and when Madonna said she would “rather kill myself” than sing hits like Mariah’s Always Be My Baby, the diva hit back and said: “I haven’t paid attention to Madonna since I was in seventh or eighth grade when she used to be popular.”

Mariah also clashed with Nicki Minaj on American Idol.


When asked if her fellow judge had called her a b**** in a song, Mariah said: “I didn’t know she sang.”

The star’s first husband – Sony Music boss Tommy Mottola, now 71 – is also likely to feature in the book.

Their five-year marriage ended in 1998 and Mariah said: “It was almost like being a prisoner.”


The singer is also expected to address the moment TV chat show host Ellen DeGeneres pushed her to admit she was pregnant on live TV in 2008.

She will also spill the beans on her relationship with her “ex-sister” and “ex-brother” Alison and Morgan.

Mariah has previously said of her siblings: “They have been heartless in dealing with me.

“I’d never have spoken about my family had they not done it first.”
