Actor slams Mariah Carey for being ‘abusive,’ showing up hours late to set

Mariah Carey was supposed to make a cameo in Will Farrell‘s new film, The House, but unfortunately her scene was cut out because she was allegedly too much of a diva for the job.

Actor Cedric Yarbrough, who also stars in the film, slammed the singer in a Facebook post and revealed that she not only showed up hours late to the set and was “borderline abusive” to the director and crew.

“Okay since Will Ferrell is talking, I’ma talk-ing. 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. The film takes place in a suburban home but is made into a ‘Casino’. Why not have Mariah be an act in the casino? Funny idea,” Yarbrough wrote. “It’s rumored that she eventually showed up to set. This is true. But after waiting for her for 3-4 hours!”

He added:

While we waited the director & team had the idea of doing a stunt that Mariah’s body double would do now & bring in Mariah to match it. They do the stunt. All goes well. 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. She then requested a large fan for her hair to be blown around and a camera that would be above her, basically a crane shot. This lady was unprofessional & borderline abusive to our director, who tried his best to appease her every wish

As Yarbrough lamented Carey’s lack of professionalism, he acknowledged that Carey could have been having a bad–like most people do–but said it was no excuse for her diva antics.

“In the acting community, it’s not very good form to ‘tell’ on your fellow actors. They could be having a bad day, going through some personal things, & maybe Mariah was, I don’t know. But I do know that our crew didn’t deserve that, our director didn’t. This kind of behavior just isn’t cool,” he continued.

“For you young actors, be on time, know your homework, but be courteous and respectful. For us old heads, the same. This kind of behavior should be called out for what it is. I miss ‘I had a vision of love’ Mariah. Be a damn professional.”
