Mariah Carey was reportedly ‘borderline abusive’ on set of The House


Mariah Carey was supposed to make a cameo appearance in Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler’s new comedy The House – but things didn’t exactly go to plan.

According to E!, Cedric Yarbrough claimed in a since-deleted Facebook post that the superstar singer was “unprofessional” and “borderline abusive” on the set.

After Will coyly commented about what happened on Late Night With Seth Meyers, Cedric apparently wrote: “Yeah, a real funny cameo was SUPPOSED to happen in the new film #TheHouse with the superstar Mariah Carey. But it was ruined by superstar Mariah Carey.

“When Mariah finally showed up she refused to match the stunt. ‘Darling, I would never do it that way…’. I heard her say those exact words. he then requested a large fan for her hair to be blown around and a camera that would be above her, basically a crane shot.”

Drama on set: Mariah Carey was supposed to have a cameo role in Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler’s The House, but it didn’t work out | Warner Bros.

Although he claimed he had left out the “worst part” of what went on, he allegedly added, “This lady was unprofessional & borderline abusive to our director, who tried his best to appease her every wish.”

It comes after Rob Huebel said during an interview with SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio last month, “We did some re-shoots with a pop star named Mariah Carey. It did not go well. F**king what is going on with her? It was bananas.”

Will, who stars opposite Amy Poehler in the comedy, had addressed Mariah’s infamous diva demands this week to Seth Meyers.
“There were suggestions that weren’t executed. She was on our set and, um, things happened. Things happened and didn’t happen,” he said.
“Let’s just put it this way: At about midnight, I got a knock on my trailer and said, ‘You can just go home. We’re not going to get to you.'”
