POP star Mariah Carey will, once again, receive no Christmas presents from her family or friends.
Despite issuing a long list of things that she would like for Christmas, sources close to the star claim to have been bombarded with subliminal messages that she does not actually want anything at all.
Husband Nick Cannon said: “Mariah told me very forcefully that she wanted me to spend a minimum $200,000 on handbags, jewellery and designer clothing, but the moment I entered the store I just couldn’t do it.
“I know this sounds crazy but it was like I could hear her voice in my head telling me, over and over, that she didn’t want any presents under the Christmas tree.
“I left and sat outside in the LA sunshine muttering to myself, ‘Nick, you know she wants presents. Your wife is one of the most materialistic people you’ve ever met.
“But in every store I went in, from Tom Ford to Bulgari, her voice was there insisting that she wouldn’t ask for much this Christmas, not even snow, and that all she wanted was me.”
Cannon admitted the same thing happens every year and on Christmas Day he expects the diva ‘to go completely apeshit, as usual’.
