While Mariah Carey is famous for her musical talents, her sister has made headlines for much different reasons.
Alison Carey — the older, HIV-positive sister of the famous 45-year-old — claims she has been spending the last three months in a Long Island psych ward against her will.

“I need a lawyer to get me out of this hospital because there is no reason to keep me in here for three months,” the 54-year-old told Radar Online. “Please tell Mariah to get me out of here! She must know what’s happened to me! I want out!”

Alison was allegedly admitted following an assault, which took place in her apartment. An undisclosed male reportedly robbed the former prostitute of jewelry and while she doesn’t remember the encounter, she woke up battered.
“I don’t remember getting in a car with this person, and I don’t remember going to my house. But I remember being at my house and he was taking my jewelry.”

This is not the first time in recent months she has publicly asked Mariah for help. Back in January, she told Star magazine she would like her sister’s support with help raising her children.

“Decisions I’ve made in my life have hurt my children... We don’t have enough food. I haven’t been able to pay the rent this month,” she told the publication. “I can’t buy my daughter, who’s on her school’s honors list, the clothes she needs — not wants, needs.”
“I don’t want Mariah to think I only want her for her money, like everyone else does,” she adds. “I want her to love me again. I want her to be my sister again.”
