In the early 2000s, the singer was asked what she thought about Lopez and her response was priceless. 

"I don't know her," she said has she shook her head. 

Now Carey is is addressing the comment and saying she didn't mean anything by it because she "was just being honest."

"Well, there was a very interesting shirt that a fan made with a quote that I said years ago that, when I said it, I really wasn’t trying to be funny," Carey told The Cut. "I was just being honest and everybody’s kind of blowing it out of proportion but this guy had a shirt on and it was a picture of me that he made and the quote was underneath it -- and I’m going to leave you hanging as to what it was."

Lopez and Carey never admitted there was a feud going on between them but one thing Carey did say made it pretty clear that the two don't like each other. 

"I'd rather be onstage with a pig— a duet with Jennifer Lopez and me just ain't going to happen."

In 2014, Lopez spoke about Carey's supposed remarks and made it clear the two don't really know each other. 

"I don't have a feud against her at all. I know from back in the day, I've read things that she's said about me that were not the greatest, but we have never met," Lopez told Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live." "Like, we don't know each other. I think it's kind of from word of mouth of things that have happened in the past that I'm not really aware of. But I don't know."
