Mariah Carey is opening up about her former relationship with Derek Jeter like never before!
The 50-year-old singer is releasing her memoir “The Meaning of Mariah Carey” very soon and she opened up about the book in a new interview with Vulture.
In the interview, Mariah confirmed that she had a fling with Derek and she revealed the songs that she wrote about him.
Mariah wrote in the book that she met Derek at a dinner party near the end of her marriage to Tommy Mottola. She says that they had some “secret” flirty text exchanges and eventually shared “a clandestine kiss” on the roof of his apartment building.
When asked if she can recall the kiss, Mariah told Vulture, “Of course I do! I can never forget that moment. I mean, it’s not like it was some intensely deep, intellectually stimulating — again, it was a great moment, and it happened in a divine way because it helped me get past living there, in Sing Sing, under those rules and regulations.”
Mariah has referred to her home with Mottola as “Sing Sing,” a reference to the prison in New York.
In the book, Mariah confirms that her song “The Roof” was about Derek and that kiss. The other song she wrote about him was “My All.”
Mariah told Vulture that the lyrics “I’d risk my life to feel your body next to mine” were about her “risking her life to have a night with Jeter in Puerto Rico.”
In the new interview, Mariah also opened up about her moment with Ellen DeGeneres that has gone viral amid the controversy involving the talk show host.
