As we reported , Tyler Perry cast Mariah Carey in For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf . However, Mariah recently bailed from the project , which left Tyler Perry in a casting dilemma -- five days before the film was set to start filming. On his web site, Perry said:

Anyway, I'm there on vacation, celebrating life, thanking God and just relaxing when I get a message that I have to come home, that Mariah has dropped out of the film! I said "What? You're kidding? It's five days before she has to go to work, nobody does that. We have a deal. IT'S FIVE DAYS BEFORE SHE IS SUPPOSED TO GO TO WORK! So, I got on the plane and came home and started trying to re-cast this major role in the film.

I land and get to the studio, and I'm like, what happened? I was told that we got a call, saying that even though our deal was done, she had been advised by her doctor not to do the film. I said "What? You know I want a doctor's note, don't you?!"...LOL

Perry went on to say that he is a huge Mariah fan and knows it had to be something serious for her to suddenly bail.  This further fuels all the rumors that she is pregnant.

Thandie Newton replaced Mariah.
