Singer/actress Mariah Carey confessed she was emotionally abused after being asked about Rihanna, who was brutally beaten and bitten by ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, on ‘Larry King Live‘ Wednesday (November 4).
“You’ve been emotionally abused?” King questioned.
“Emotionally, mentally …” Mariah said.
“Why is it hard to get out of it?” King continued
“Well, it’s scary,” she said. “You know I just think you get into a situation and you feel locked in if your situation is similar to one of the situations that I’ve been in which I won’t harp on.”
“No you don’t have to, but it is hard to get out?” he asked again.
“For me, to really get out it was difficult because there was a connection that was not only a marriage but a business thing where the person was in control of my life,” Carey added.
Mariah says there are different types of abuse and that she canâ€™t imagine what Rihanna has been through. The 40 year-old singer claims it is really difficult to break out of a destructive relationship, especially when that person is in control of your life. Mariah, who is currently married to Nick Cannon, is most probably talking about her relationship with ex-husband and Sony Music mogul Tommy Mottola.
