Washington: Mariah Carey has cleared the air over her long time friend Joan Boyce being referred to as her mother.
On January 12, Carey, hit up the store of famed jeweller Joan Boyce. Soon after, some outlets began referring to Boyce’s boutique as “Mariah’s parents’ jewellery store”.
Shutting down those false speculations, both Boyce and Carey took to their twitter accounts to sound off.
“@MariahCarey M, congrats on BET Honors! Did you see they called me your mom again? It’s so silly! You only have one mom and that’s Pat Carey,” a magazine has quoted Boyce as tweeting at Carey.
“@joanboycehsn You’d think after she sang the duet with me last year and performed on my ABC Special in front of millions, people would get it!” the singer responded.
“I was extremely pregnant but here’s a link to our moment together on stage 4 anyone who didn’t see it. That’s my momma!” Carey added, along with the video of her and her mom singing.
Pat, who’s pictured with a pregnant Mariah carrying ‘dem babies’ in the photo to the left, also appeared in a video for Mimi’s holiday album, `Merry Christmas II You` in 2010.
