Mariah Carey sued by vet over unpaid bills
New York: American singer Mariah Carey has been sued by her vet over unpaid bills.
The vet has accused the 40-year-old singer of refusing payment for the ‘extraordinary services’ she performed for her three dogs.
Doctor Cindy Bressler said she did over 37,000 dollars of work taking care of Cha-Cha, Dolomite and JJ, but Carey has only paid a part of her bill, according to the papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.
Bressler does house calls in Manhattan and the Hamptons.
She said she took care of the three dogs ‘at the special instance and request’ of the ‘Precious’ star between October 31 and December 2, 2009.
“Bressler rendered veterinary services including extraordinary services to the defendant’s canines,” the paper said.
According to the suit, Bressler “performed work, labor and services on the defendant’s canines at the agreed price and reasonable value of 37,790.32 dollars, which sum Carey agreed to pay.”
But Carey only shelled out 8,231.50 dollars, and refused to give any more even though she never disputed over the rest of the bill, according to the suit, reports a news daily.
The dogs were reportedly a gift from husband Nick Cannon.
