Report claimed the pair had ‘blazing row’ in business meeting
On Sunday (6 June), tabloid reports claimed that Carey had quit Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation after a “blazing row” between the pair during a meeting about Carey’s career.
The report added that the singer-songwriter “made it clear she wants nothing more to do with him”, and that a formal exit from Roc Nation will occur within weeks.
Carey has now denied such an argument occurred.
“The only ‘explosive’ situation I’d ever ‘get into’ with Hov is a creative tangent, such as our #1 song ‘Heartbreaker’!!” Carey tweeted.
“To the people who make up these lies I say ‘Poof! — Vamoose, sonofa*****’!”
The tweet quoted a 2001 single by Jay-Z titled “Izzo (HOVA)”, while making reference to 1999’s “Heartbreaker”, the international hit single that saw the pair collaborate.
It remains unclear whether Carey is still represented by Roc Nation, though she no longer appears on the label’s roster on their official site.
Last month, Carey celebrated the Friends reunion by sharing her “sad attempt” at mimicking Jennifer Aniston’s haircut in the Nineties.
In March, Carey was also sued for defamation by her brother Morgan, over claims put forth in her 2020 memoir The Meaning of Mariah Carey.
The suit came a month after Carey’s sister Alison also sued over the memoir.
