Mariah Carey Dropped By Husband, Record Label And Famed Publicist

When it rains it pours. After Mariah Carey's latest CD "Elusive Chanteuse" flopped, in what was an unexpected development for her label, management, publicist and husband, many severed ties with her. Carey's cornball husband, Nick Cannon, left her stating she is mentally ill and her publicist ditched her as well. The singer is currently looking for new representation. Carey is expected to lose her record deal with Def Jam, who poured money into "Elusive Chanteuse" only to see it bomb (under a boycott). Had the album been successful Def Jam would have renewed Carey's recording contract.

Carey's publicist, Cindi Berger, unable to cope with the singer's first real career failure or increasingly erratic behavior, dropped her as a client, then got into a war of words with her. Berger maintains she quit. However, Carey is making a scene taking the Hollywood approach by stating she dropped Berger via a missive that stated, "I think it's time for us to take a break Cindi." Carey really was dropped by Berger. Carey's career has imploded. So has her personal life. A top publicist does not want the job of explaining that to the media on a weekly basis.
