Mariah Carey reveals to People magazine that she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2001 after her infamous meltdown in a New York City hotel room.

“Until recently I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me…It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn’t do that anymore. I sought and received treatment, I put positive people around me and I got back to doing what I love — writing songs and making music.” – Mariah Carey

She is now in therapy and taking medication for bipolar II disorder. You can read the magazine feature here.


  1. I fell out my chair when she cussed at Jamie Fox for asking her to sing at Mayweather’s birthday party. I said to myself, she crazy af!

  2. good for you mimi. if you don’t acknowledge the problem you can’t get help. mental illness is not your fought so hold your head up, write your songs and CASH THOSE CHECKS!

  3. Hopefully people will stop mocking her name but I wonder if James going to the mental facility prompted her to share her own diagnosis before someone else could.

  4. Can I ask you a question if you don’t mind and I am not trying to be funny at all have every black woman that you came in contact with always mean to you and always said something disrespectful back to you ?

  5. More black people were beat shot killed identities stolen robbed betrayed and fed mind deteriorating crack in the last 8 years than ever in the history of america. All this trauma created mass depression and PTSD. Men abandoned black women and left them with no support and YOU VOTED For it.

    • Yup Obama was a disgrace…thats why I am happy hes gone..dude did nothing but pander to black celebrities while ignoring the average black persons who are in absolute destitute

  6. If she’s really bipolar she needs to leave the alcohol alone. Nothing worse than a drunk bit*h with mental health issues.

    • @BHerman LOL, yes she’s been an absolute Bitch and now want sympathy. Problem is, she knew all along she had mental health problems so that doesn’t excuse her behavior if she knowingly didn’t take medication.
