Mariah Carey's estranged siblings Morgan Carey and Alison Carey made news earlier this year when Alison released a video pleading with the R&B superstar to help her pay for some life-saving medical treatments and drug intervention to help her stay sober.
It seems the pleas fell on deaf ears, because Alison seems to have hit rock bottom. According to multiple reports, the 55-year-old has been arrested on charges of prostitution in upstate New York.
The details are incredibly sad.
According to NewYorkUpstate.com, Alison Carey was caught soliciting money in exchange for sexual favors from an undercover police officer posing as a client. Police say she was working out of a hotel for at least a week and advertised her services on the internet.
According the Daily Freeman, one ad posted at 6:18 p.m. Friday contained two photos of Alison Carey and read:
"Im a pretty lady looking for guys who are looking to have some fun and get into a world of pleasure that other woman just cant provide two you,woman with the ability to make the earth move for you and to get you to see stars, oh yea with me its,'ITS SUCH A SWEET,SWEET FANTASY BABY, WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES I COME AND TAKE YOU ON AND ON.' "
That last line, of course, is a lyric from Mariah's hit song "Fantasy."
Police have said that anyone who has had sexual encounters with Carey should call their doctors to get tested, backing up previous reports that she is HIV positive.
Hopefully Alison gets the help she needs, with or without the assistance of her famous sibling.
