Clip video 'Loverboy', Mariah Carey CAREY'S CAREER CRASHES All that glitters is not gold for Virgin Records who are poised to cut their losses in spectacular style when they pay off troubled diva Mariah Carey. After widespread media speculation, the singer is set to leave Virgin Records in a deal that will net the star $50 million in compensation. According to the New York Post, lawyers acting for Carey have secured the deal which will make her a free agent following just nine months of work for her new label. Virgin's five-album $100 million deal broken all previous records last year after her bitter split with Sony records but her latest album 'Glitter' failed to meet sales expectations and the film of the same name was a box office disaster. Meanwhile, the star behaviour became increasingly bizarre until she was eventually hospitalised due to mental and physical breakdown in July. According to the Post, Carey's US spokeswoman was unable to elaborate further on the developments. Whilst the stretch-limo load of cash will no doubt soothe the fact that Carey has been sacked, the fact is that 2001 was an awful year for the 31-year-old singer. How the insecure and sometimes difficult star must hanker for those glory days when she was the biggest female artist of the 90s, selling more than 140 million albums worldwide and putting out a near-unending string of hits including 'Heartbreaker,' 'Fantasy' and 'Always Be My Baby,' and winning two Grammys. She rose to superstardom on the strength of her stunning five-octave voice; an elastic talent who moved easily from glossy ballads to hip-hop-inspired dance-pop. Born in New York to mixed race parents, she was discovered as an 18-year-old by the Sony svengali Tommy Mottola, who signed the high-powered singer after hearing her demo tape at a party, he later married Carey (20 years his junior) in 1993. But their professional relationship lasted longer than their wedded bliss. The dysfuntional nature was referred to in the semi-autobiographical movie, 'Glitter', and Carey and Mottola divorced in 1998. She has now claimed to have found happiness with new partner Luis Miguel.
