Mariah Carey Drops Out Of Tyler Perry Film, Fueling Pregnancy Rumors
Is Mariah Carey with child?
The singing star, now 41, has reportedly been undergoing fertility treatments in hopes of conceiving a child with hubby Nick Cannon. Now she’s fueled pregnancy rumors after jumping ship on a new Tyler Perry drama, citing medical reasons.
The singer was slated to follow up her award-winning success in the Lee Daniels drama Precious by appearing in Perry’s film adaptation of Ntozake Shange’s 1975 play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf, set to begin shooting next month. However, Carey mysteriously pulled out this week, offering little explanation.
Her rep hasn’t been much help either.
“She is not doing the movie because her doctor advised her not to,” the star’s publicist Cindy Berger tells PEOPLE.com. “More than that I cannot comment further.”
For Colored Girls will begin filming as scheduled, featuring an all-star cast, which includes: Janet Jackson, Kimberly Elise, Whoopi Goldberg, Kerry Washington, Macy Gray, Phylicia Rashad, Jill Scott, Loretta Devine and Anika Noni Rose.
