Carey Blasts Press Over Lavish Wedding Rumours
LATEST: Mariah Carey has hit out at the media over reports she is planning a $4 million (GBP2 million) wedding ceremony to celebrate her marriage to Nick Cannon.
The couple married quietly in the Bahamas in April (08) and there have been rumours ever since that they are to host a lavish event in New York this summer (08) to renew their vows in front of their friends and family.
Carey has since denied they will be hosting a bigger ceremony and has now criticised the press for spreading the stories.
She says, "It's difficult, especially when legitimate press is saying, 'They're having a $4 million wedding.'
"Why? What - did we set a budget? 'It's gonna be $4 million! It's going to be really cool! We're going to give away gold as people leave! We're going to sprinkle them with gold! It's going to be very Coming to America!'
"What do they think? Our whole point (in having the unannounced beach wedding) was to do the opposite!"
