Mariah Carey is in Morocco and performed at the 11th edition of the Mawazine International Music Festival. In the meantime, Mariah's sister, Alison Carey, is hoping to reconcile with her sister. She says they had a difficult childhood and she had aspirations to be a star, but the pain of her childhood pushed her into prostitution. She toldThe Sun:
“I want to reach out to my sister and tell her how much I miss her and how proud I am that we are family.
“We may be apart now, and it has been many years since we last spoke. But to me, despite all the bad times and the arguments, she will always be my baby sister.
“I still remember when she was a little girl — just as beautiful as she is now.
“It has been incredible watching Mariah grow and blossom into a successful, independent woman with the world at her feet.
“I cannot put into words how moved I was to see pictures of my niece and nephew for the first time. I saw photographs of them on the television just after they were born and I saw more when they turned one recently.
“They are absolutely adorable. And when I look into their eyes I see my sister’s eyes shining right back at me — the eyes I used to stare into when I would hold her as a baby.
“I am sure Mariah is going to be a fantastic mother and her husband Nick Cannon, who I’ve heard nothing but good things about, will be a great father.
“I just wish Mariah would let me be her sister again and a proper auntie to her children.
“I know we have had so many problems over the years, but I want to reach out to her in the hope that we can make peace and mend the wounds that have torn our family apart.”
