*Singer-songwriter Mariah Carey seemingly has it all. But in a new interview with CBS SUNDAY MORNING anchor Jane Pauley, Carey says it wasn’t always that way and opens up about her childhood struggles, her marriage to Tommy Mottola, her new memoir and her fans.

The interview will be broadcast Sunday, Sept. 27 (9:00 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Throughout the extreme challenges she faced, Carey says she was always focused on music and success.

“I always knew that I would do this, and it was just a matter of when it was going to happen,” Carey tells Pauley. “Because I came from, you know, a broken and dysfunctional family and without money or things that most people had.”

Carey, the youngest member of an interracial family, was 3 when her parents divorced. She lived with her mother, a trained opera singer, though they lived in near poverty. She tells Pauley she felt like an outsider, which she dealt with in her songs.

“Because when someone is visually ambiguous like myself, there’s a certain, there’s a lot of different misconceptions that come with that,” Carey says.

Carey also talks with Pauley about how her classmates treated her, including a sleepover with a clique of middle school girls that turned ugly.

“I was so excited and innocently thinking this is going to be great. And then, you know, I just felt utterly betrayed because they cornered me, in order to – just completely derail me and use words we don’t say,” Carey recalls.

Carey tells Pauley she deals with a lot of issues in her book The Meaning of Mariah Carey that she’s never talked about before, even with her closest friends.

Of her 1993 marriage to Sony Music CEO Tommy Mottola, Carey says she “did not have any power in that relationship.”

She was 23 and he was 44 when they married. They divorced five years later.

“I was a kid in his world, and I just kept making money for the company,” Carey says. “Just kept going in and making records and making records and writing songs and, you know, feeding the machine. And I was living a dream, but it was also a nightmare.”

In a wide-ranging interview, Carey also talks about songwriting, her movie “Glitter,” her personal 9/11 story, and that connection she has with her fans.

“There’s no way to describe the relationship that I have with my fans,” Carey says of the Lambs (as they’re called). “And no, it is not lip service. It is genuine gratitude for them, and for them validating my existence.”

CBS SUNDAY MORNING is broadcast Sundays (9:00-10:30 AM, ET) on the CBS Television Network. Rand Morrison is the executive producer.

*It looks like the marriage is over between Malik Beasley and Montana Yao. 

Sources tell E! News that Yao filed for divorce shortly after the NBA star was spotted in Miami with Larsa Pippen.

We previously reported… Yao says she was “blindsided” after seeing photos online of the Minnesota Timberwolves guard holding hands with Scottie Pippen’s estranged wife.

A source close to Yao told TMZ Sports that Beasley was getting cozy with Larsa while his wife was waiting for him to return to their home in Minnesota to celebrate his 24th birthday on November 26. 

Larsa is 46 and Beasley is 24. She is still married to Scottie.

Yao shares a child with Beasley.

“Montana filed for a divorce the day she saw the photos,” the source told E! News. “Montana never cheated, and it’s not in her character. She’s not dating anybody. She’s a family person. She’s focusing on taking care of her son with her parents. They are quarantining together. Her son is her first priority.”

A source has told Hollywood Unlocked that Beasley had been separated from Yao for months. 

The source claims Pippen was “fully aware” that Beasley was married, but separated from his wife. 

“She thought Malik was in the process of ending his marriage and she wasn’t doing anything wrong by hanging out with him,” the source said. “Larsa and Malik are still in touch and are planning to see each other again when the news blows over.”

Last month, Pippen made headlines for revealing she was dating another NBA baller, Tristan Thompson, before she introduced him to Khloé Kardashian.

Meanwhile, Beasley reportedly once fought ex-NFL player Su’a Cravens in a hotel lobby over Montana Yao.
