Mariah Carey: Daughter Is A Diva
May 9 -- Mariah Carey says her daughter Monroe is a diva, and she wants to send her son Moroccan to boxing classes. Mariah Carey claims her daughter "out-divas" her.
The 'Hero' hitmaker is known for her demanding ways - with her backstage demands previously including things such as having her dressing room painted white and requesting 20 white kittens and 100 white doves - but says three-year-old Monroe is much more high-maintenance.
She said: "Miss Monroe, the little princess, she way out-divas me, she wins. I have a picture of her in the womb like this, with her arms behind her head, it's an ultrasound and she's posing."
Meanwhile, the 44-year-old singer also admitted she is keen to enrol Monroe's twin brother Moroccan into boxing lessons as he has started hitting other children, even ones who are bigger and older than he is, reminding her and her husband Nick Cannon of Sylvester Stallone's famous boxer character Rocky, with who her son shares a nickname.
Speaking to TV talk show host David Letterman, she said: "I like the name Rocky actually, but I didn't want to name him Rocky and that's what we call him, and he likes to call himself Rocky. But now he's punching kids though, and that's the problem.
He's only three, they're bigger and older than him and he's knocking them out the box. He has to learn to respect, but he's too young for the classes."
And Mariah often finds herself in the middle of spats between her children.
She said: "They do get along well but they fight and sometimes I'm in the middle of it."
