Mariah Carey isn’t in the midst of a “cash crisis,” despite a completely inaccurate report in one of this week’s new tabloids. Gossip Cop can exclusively clear up the situation.

An article in the latest issue of OK! claims the music superstar is starting to have money problems because her lavish lifestyle is catching up with her. A so-called “insider” tells the magazine, “Mariah lives like a queen, but so does her entourage of 20. She’s not broke yet, but she’s definitely feeling the pinch. Her concerts just aren’t bringing in money the way they used to.”

The outlet’s seemingly phony insider goes on to say Carey recently had to cut costs such as private jets and five-star hotels due to her supposed financial woes. “She actually hit up a P.F. Chang’s with her entourage in Texas a couple of weeks ago,” the “source” adds. “They rolled up in a bus. She’s having to live almost like a normal person.” The dubious source further contends the singer hopes her current tour with Lionel Richie will help ease her alleged money troubles.

It should be noted, Carey’s net worth is estimated to be more than $500 million, so Gossip Cop was hesitant to believe OK!’s tale of her supposed economic difficulty. Our doubts were confirmed after checking with a rep for Carey, who exclusively assures us, “Mariah is not having financial issues.” This is simply a non-story.

Unfortunately, we’re not surprised by the magazine’s bogus report. Gossip Cop recently busted the outlet for making up a story about Carey having a “midlife crisis” and partying nonstop. Shortly before that fabrication, we called out the tabloid for falsely claiming Carey refuses to sign pictures of herself if she looks heavy in them. This latest article about the singer’s nonexistent “cash crisis” is simply more fiction.
