Concerns have been raised about the well-being of pop diva Mariah Carey as reports surface about sluggish ticket sales for her upcoming shows at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
The New York Post’s Page Six reports that seats are still available for the July 5 opening night of her three-month residency. The report quotes an insider saying: “It’s a disaster. Scalpers bought a bunch of the tix and are freaking out.”
The report notes that Carey fired “her fiercely protective manager,” Stella Bulochnikov, back in November and hasn’t performed since Christmas. Bulochnikov reportedly wanted to book the singer into something smaller than the 4,300-seat Caesars venue.
Not surprisingly, Carey’s publicist offered a different story. The publicist is quoted in the report saying: “These allegations are false and come from a source that must be desperate to pretend to be in the know . . . Look forward to seeing you at the Vegas show — if you can get a seat!”
The report adds: “People who were once in her orbit are concerned for her well-being, and don’t want her ending up like Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson.”
