Mariah Carey may be mom to 8-month-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, but when it comes to her own mother, she’s not down for any baby mama drama.
On January 12, Carey, whose husband, Nick Cannon, is currently recovering from minor kidney failure, hit up the store of famed jeweler and longtime friend, Joan Boyce. Soon after, some outlets began referring to Boyce’s boutique as “Mariah’s parents’ jewelry store.”
Shutting down those false speculations, both Boyce and Carey took to their twitter accounts to sound off.
“@MariahCarey M, congrats on BET Honors! Did you see they called me your mom again? It’s so silly! You only have one mom and that’s Pat Carey,” Boyce tweeted at the singer on Friday.
“@joanboycehsn You’d think after she sang the duet with me last year & performed on my ABC Special in front of millions, people would get it!” the singer responded.
“I was extremely pregnant but here’s a link to our moment together on stage 4 anyone who didn’t see it. That’s my momma!” Carey added, along with the video of her and her mom singing.
Pat, who’s pictured with a pregnant Mariah carrying “dem babies” in the photo to the left, also appeared in a video for Mimi’s holiday album, Merry Christmas II You in 2010.
