Mariah Carey has some skeletons in her closet, and she'll do whatever it takes to keep them from getting out. The superstar diva has issued a cease-and-desist order against music producer Damion "Damizza" Young, attempting to block him from releasing his tell-all memoir called Guilty By Association, AllHipHop.com reports.
Damion has produced several singles for Mariah, including "I Still Believe," "Irresistable," and "Crybaby," and had also been her confidante during her post-Glitter days and subsequent breakdown. Damion claims he had an "intimate" four-year relationship with Mimi that they both tried to keep away from the press.
The book also contains entire chapters dedicated to his relationships with Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, Eminem, Ludacris and others, though it's not known if any of those artists have also taken legal action to keep the book from being published.
"It's been and continues to be a mind-blowing journey," Damion tells AllHipHop.com. "I really felt the fans deserved to hear some of my first-hand accounts of how some of their favorite records came to be. Besides, it's been awhile since my mailbox has been filled with cease-and-desist orders."
Considering how hard Mariah has worked to get her act together this past year, we can understand why she would want to keep her dark past under wraps. But that's no fun for us, so we're siding with the defendant on this one. To the presses, Damion!
