In a recent interview with Variety, Mariah Carey talks about her infamous 2001 breakdown on MTV.
She said it was an emotional and physical breakdown but not a nervous breakdown.
Her therapist labeled it a “Diva Fit” and that the people around Mariah could not handle it.
At the time, Mariah needed help and the people around her didn’t help her, they just kept pushing her to work more and harder.
The minute I said, I’m not fine, I need a day off, I need a moment, nobody could handle it because they infantilized me from the beginning.
Mariah Carey says that she had "a whole supposed breakdown, alleged" and shares that her therapist told her: “You didn’t have a breakdown; you had a diva fit and people couldn’t handle it” https://t.co/lDrquGlWx6— Variety (@Variety) October 8, 2019
