Mariah Carey skipped out on performing at the taped performance for the Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony because she was allegedly on the phone with lawyers figuring out details on her divorce from Nick Cannon.
According to TMZ, when she finally showed up for the segment taping, (that airs Wednesday night) the NBC big wigs were so mad that they sent her home! Fans waited for hours in the cold rain, Mariah never showed.
People connected to the hotel told TMZ, “Mariah was ensconced in her East Side hotel, yacking with her lawyer on the phone about her divorce. People who overheard her say it did not seem nasty … she was going over the property settlement. When she pulled up to Rockefeller Center more than 3 hours late, she was still on the phone and people overheard her continuing to talk divorce. NBC execs were full on enraged — ditto the crew — and Mariah’s people were told to just go home. We’re told she really wanted to perform, but the network had clearly had enough.”
Would YOU have waited around to watch Mariah perform??
