The New York Daily News reports that the singer has been a patient at UCLA Medical Center since Tuesday after suffering what a source called "an emotional setback." A spokesperson for the artist issued a terse "no comment" to the paper when contacted.
As reported yesterday (Sept. 5), Carey postponed her planned Sept. 12 interview with Barbara Walters for ABC's "20/20" news magazine show, and the Daily News notes that she has also put off a Sept. 14 appearance on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno."
Carey was in California for several days, relaxing at the Santa Barbara resort Bacara. A source told the paper that while she was there, Carey met with Virgin Records executives, "and apparently she simply wasn't ready for that."
The 31-year-old singer blamed her breakdown on exhaustion from working on two movies -- "Glitter," opening Sept. 21 in U.S. theaters, and "Wise Girls," due out next year -- as well as the Virgin soundtrack for "Glitter," which hits U.S. stores Sept. 11. As previously reported, release of the album and the film were bumped while Carey underwent treatment at first a Connecticut clinic, and then privately.
