Alison Carey Reaches Out to Mariah Carey For Help With Medical Expenses
|Alison Carey Reaches Out to Mariah Carey For Help With Medical Expenses|
Just months after doctors brought her back from the brink of death, recovering drug addict Alison Carey, who is also HIV positive, is a broken woman.
She is in dire need of financial support as she battles back to health following a devastating home
invasion attack last April that left her brain damaged and seriously ill. She has been in and out of the hospital.
According to the Mail, Morgan has asked Mariah to step in and pay to help Alison, who has struggled with a drug addiction that led her to blow much of the $1.6 million her father left her when he died in 2002.
The video suggests Alison wants Mariah's support, too.
"Mariah I love you, and I desperately need your help," she tells the camera, "please don't abandon me like this."
For years, reports have pointed to the assistance Mariah's given her ailing sister.
The soon-to-be-remarried singer has covered the cost of Alison's rehab multiple times, according to Fox News. But the pair seem to have been on bad terms since a massive fight in the mid-90s.
Things don't seem to be much better between Mariah and Morgan. A few weeks after she was institutionalized following the street wandering incident, Alison was released from the hospital.
According to Morgan, she now needs more expensive care.
"Because Mariah has not found it in her heart to help Alison get the care she requires there are times when Alison forgets or is unable to take her medication and this sometimes precipitates problematic
behavior," he says, adding that Alison's brain scans "show severe damage."
"Mariah is the one person in the family who could actually make a real meaningful difference to Alison's life. The least she could do is put Alison in a good hospital and make sure she gets the care she needs."
Recalling that neither Mariah nor Alison's mother joined him at the hospital when she seemed likely to die, Morgan also tells the Mail "the worst is yet to come" for Alison and that because Mariah's "fiance [James Packer] is a billionaire" they should "step up" and help.
He adds that Mimi shouldn't worry about potentially enabling Alison's drug habit because it's "simple" to safely "make sure that [an addict's] basic medical care."
Last year, he told the National Enquirer he believed his sister was bipolar and an alcoholic.

"Mariah I love you, and I desperately need your help, please don’t abandon me like this," she says in the clip.
Carey's brother, Morgan Carey, hopes the video will strike a chord with his baby sister--who's worth more than $500 million--to finally step up to the plate.
A rep for Mariah, however, denies the claim that she has not helped her sister.
"Through the years, Mariah has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars supporting Alison and her children," read a statement made to the Reports . "In fact, Mariah has supported her extended family for over two decades."
