Drew Barrymore and John Boyega play Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts with James Corden on The Late Late Show with James Corden on March 21, 2018.

The R&B singer reportedly left Corden waiting for over two hours.

On Wednesday (March 21), The Late Late Show host James Corden invited actors John Boyega and Drew Barrymore to join him for a segment of "Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts." Participants are required to answer a question honestly, and if they decide not to answer, they suffer the consequences of eating an unappetizing concoction -- for instance, a Spam smoothie.

Corden had the tables turned on him when Boyega asked "Have you ever stolen anything and if so, where?" The host fessed up: he’d stolen a candle from Mariah Carey before they filmed a Christmas edition of "Carpool Karaoke."

"This is completely true and I’ve never told anyone this -- I once stole a candle from Mariah Carey’s house," he confessed. Apparently, the singer left Corden waiting in her living room for over two hours, which tempted him to nab a butterfly-printed candle with Mariah’s name on it. He considered the candle compensation for his time -- and still has it today

In the clip, Corden apologized to Mariah for the transgression. "I’m sorry, Mariah but you had loads," he said.
