At a press conference held at the Four Seasons in NYC where Mariah Carey was unveiled as the new ambassador for Jenny (formerly Jenny Craig), the singer apparently took a dig at Kim Kardashian's recent divorce.
"I'm a real person, I'm not going to put on a fake face for Hollywood," Carey told the crowd as she dished on her marriage to hubby Nick Cannon, with whom she shares six-month-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.
"Sometimes we make each other mad, that's why we aren't divorced after four months," she cracked to host Gayle King.
The audience gasped at Carey's comment, prompting the diva to apologize, "I'm sorry, I'm just saying."
In the video, ( seen below) Carey can be seen putting her hand over her mouth after the crowd's reaction.
Given the average length of high-profile marriages in Hollywood, Carey's jab could have been aimed at just about anyone, but considering that Kardashian filed for divorce just last week, it was not unreasonable for the audience to assume that Carey was taking a jab at Kardashian.
"Mariah, your kids are so cute. Tell it like it is, Kim is so FAKE. I wish Tyler Perry would have cast you in his new movie instead of Kim KARDTRASHIAN," commented Linda K on Yahoo's OMG! report on Carey's interview.
Afterward, however, Mariah denied her comment was meant for Kim K.
The award-winning singer told Extra, "First of all, I don't read the tabloids unless it's about me. And even then, when it is about me, I try not to read it unless it's good. I don't look at these people."
She clarified, "A lot of people have high-profile moments, and then they get a divorce, and I'm sure it's very painful for them. My thing is: I don't want that. I got married to stay married. I want some stability for our kids, and Nick feels the same way."
