The New York Post’s Liz Smith reports Mariah Carey has headed off to Japan despite the order from her doctor, and wishes from Virgin Records, that she shouldn’t.
Liz says Mariah likely was fueled to go because of all the press her arch rival Jennifer Lopez received getting married over the weekend.
While Virgin Records was losing money over previous cancelled appearances by Carey, they still had advised her to take six months off fearing another relapse. Carey wouldn’t be deterred though, telling her handlers, “I’m going! I’m fine!” before taking flight to Japan.
