Cedric Yarbrough has slammed Mariah Carey’s diva antics on the set of upcoming comedy The House, claiming she was “borderline abusive.”
The Hollywood actor took to Facebook to make the shocking admission just one day after his co-star Will Farrell admitted that the singer had filmed a cameo for the flick but “did not make the final cut.”
“Okay since Will Ferrell is talking, I’ma talk-ing,” he wrote in a post which has since been deleted.
“Yeah, a real funny cameo was SUPPOSED to happen in the new film #TheHouse with the superstar Mariah Carey.”
“But it was ruined by superstar Mariah Carey. The film takes place in a suburban home but is made into a ‘Casino’. Why not have Mariah be an act in the casino? Funny idea. It’s rumoured that she eventually showed up to set. This is true. But after waiting for her for 3-4 hours!”
Yarbrough continued his explosive rant, outing Carey for being too demanding.
“While we waited the director & team had the idea of doing a stunt that Mariah’s body double would do now & bring in Mariah to match it. They do the stunt. All goes well. When Mariah finally showed up she refused to match the stunt. ‘Darling, I would never do it that way…’. I heard her say those exact words,” he recalled.
“She then requested a large fan for her hair to be blown around and a camera that would be above her, basically a crane shot. This lady was unprofessional & borderline abusive to our director, who tried his best to appease her every wish.”
The 44-year-old said that he hoped his words would deter other actors from following in the Glitter star’s footsteps.
“In the acting community, it’s not very good form to ‘tell’ on your fellow actors,” he said.
“They could be having a bad day, going through some personal things, & maybe Mariah was, I don’t know. But I do know that our crew didn’t deserve that, our director didn’t.
“For you young actors, be on time, know your homework, but be courteous and respectful. For us old heads, the same,” he advised.
“This kind of behaviour should be called out for what it is. I miss ‘I had a vision of love’ Mariah.”
“Be a damn professional,” he added.
