Mariah Carey’s Former Friend Dishes On Her Relationship With Eminem

Submitted by on October 7, 2010 – 9:46 am35 Comments

In his new memoir Guilty By Association, Damion “Damizza” Young, Mariah Carey’s former manager, producer, and ex-BFF, provides some insight into what led to the bad blood between the R&B diva and Eminem. Speaking to In Touch Weekly, Young admits he was the one who introduced Carey to the temperamental hip-hop star, and professed it was the biggest mistake he’s ever made. Damn, those are strong words!

Young also revealed that once the duo met, the rapper didn’t waste any time asking Mi-Mi to read for a part in his hit movie, 8 Mile. Thinking she would be auditioning for the role of his love interest, Mi-Mi was taken aback when Em told her he wanted her to play his mother in the film (oh wow, major violation). That slight, despite how inadvertent it may have been, would’ve turned me off immediately, but the extremely odd couple instead grew close, and according to Young, “Em even violated his probation to be with Mariah in New York before their relationship blew into an epic, ‘he said, she said.’”

Epic isn’t the word as these two have been taking shots at each other in songs, videos, and interviews on a fairly consistent basis ever since their relationship, fling, phase, or whatever it was came to an end. As for the nearly decade long back-and-forth, Young indicated all of it could’ve been avoided had the duo listened to him from the start. “I warned them both, but they didn’t listen,” he told In Touch. “The guy [Eminem] eats pop stars for a living. Say one thing he doesn’t like, he’s gonna attack.”

That hasn’t stopped Mi-Mi’s hubby Nick Cannon from defending her honor. Since exchanging “I dos” with the singer, Cannon has released a diss song, talked smack on his morning radio show, and even challenged Em to a fight (blank stare). Nick hon, you better stop playing and stick to introducing rapping grandmas, belly dancers, and fire-eaters on that variety show you host.

    I love Eminem and Mariah’s music but I knew she is lying. Eminem is telling the truth in the warning song he goes into too much detail. Whereas, whenever she is asked about it it’s always ”I don’t eat candy”or whatever lol.

    I don’t know, I don’t think they were ever intimate. I really can’t see her falling for a guy like that, he’s not her type. She’s very flirty, I’m sure he thought he was in and then he got shut down.

  • B says:

    Mariah and Eminem only hung out a few times. They never got intimate. Mariah is like naturally flirty and doesn’t even realize that what she is doing is “flirtatious” sometimes, and naturally Eminem got the wrong idea (a lot of guys probably would too). He probably tried to go in on her but got shut down, so obviously he would be pissed (because he thought she was leading him on) and embarrassed. Back then Eminem was still just starting out, so then to say that he was in a relationship with Mariah would get his name further out there, plus it could have been a way to get back at her. Him or his friends probably started the rumor, and when she denied it the whole feuding ish started.

    ^ What I think actually happened.

    It’s weird that Eminem always threatens to release phone calls or whatever, but never does. Just saying.
    What “happened” between Mariah and Eminem is probably basically just a misunderstanding that got out of hand.

  • D Eischen says:

    haha Nick Cannon wanted to fight Eminem.What a dumbass i mean i know u have to stand up for yah girl but c’mon you dont go after a guy that could destroy u on tha mic and most likey on the street.I mean Eminem has got more talent in his left nut then Nick Cannon has got in his whole body and i really dont know if Eminem can fight but you dont really want to test a guy who is known for his violent lycrics and beefs idk i would just tell Nick Cannon to shut the hell up before Eminem says somthing that will destroy his pathetic career

  • Eminemsucks says:

    Eminem is a low lying piece of garbage, he should be happy he could even be with Mariah Carey. Stooping so low as to get media attention, I wouldn’t be surprised MC isn’t even attracted to that fugly cunt. MC is rich, talented and a DIVA, what the hell this Eminem think he is? Fuck off you white trash.

  • That Guy From... says:

    Fake shit! If Em really had phone messages and that he would’ve released them AGESSSS ago… truss me! He ain’t got shit!

    He is lucky I ain’t Mariah, I would’ve dissed his ass to the welfare!!

  • I says:

    Lool this whole situation is so old! Even Eminem said so himself! Mariah needs to stop lying and Nick Cannon needs to wake up, get a proper career and stop sponging off his alcoholic wife.

  • J.CIRCUIT says:

    I think eminem would beat nick in a fight. Eminem is just so crazy he probably would go ape sh*t on Nick.HAHAHAHAH Nick just don’t look like a fighter, he’s just a lover boy.

  • durk niggler says:

    Em loses points with me…name one rapper that goes after popstars on a consistent basis….i’ll wait, shit is corny and always will be.

  • They may have DATED but that doesn’t mean they had sex. I’ve dated many men that I haven’t slept with. The way Em keeps going on about her years later is pathetic. Eminem is a bitch, that’s why his rap name is after candy because he’s sweet and sugar. He never goes hard when it comes to other rappers in the game but you will diss pop stars, Elton John and MOBY? Be real with yourself Eminem is a lame, can we take the hood pass back from this trailer trash?? He’s the corny one at least Nick is defending his wife’s honor.

  • jason says:
