Mariah Carey and Eminem
Back in 2009, Eminem and March were in the middle of a feud about their rumored relationship. The 45-year-old rapper confirmed their relationship but the diva kept denying it. It all started in 2001 when both the singers were at the top of their game.
According to sources, Mariah reached out to Eminem to see if he could help her on her Charmbracelet album, where Eminem was all over the paps because of his iconic performance with Elton John.
Mariah says that everything about professional but Eminem said that the date for several months. Speculations started to feel real when Eminem mentioned Mimi in his song “Superman”. Later, Mariah referred to Eminem as a “Clown” in his Charmbracelet album.
When Mariah was on a press tour she shaded Eminem when someone asked her about him by saying “I talked to him, I spoke to him a few times, whatever. But in terms of me having an intimate relationship? With men, I can name them all on one hand and he’s not one of them.” *RUDE*.
She went onto pretend that she was a bigger person by stepping into another level of disgrace She had a dancer sport a blonde wig and Detroit jersey just like Eminem wears during her performance of “Clown”. On the other hand, Eminem played her messages in public.
Mariah did what she does the best. Deny it! After Nick and Mariah got married, Eminem released a song dissing Nick as well to which Nick replied with a long blog post accusing Eminem of being a racist and disrespectful to his wife. Mariah drops the word “obsessed” hinting, Eminem.
This drama continued for long ten years when finally Eminem backed up by saying he’s done talking about it. *phew*.
