Last weekend Mariah Carey performed live on stage in celebration of the LG Live at 2010 Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix and, as you may recall, took a bit of a tumble during her performance of Make It Happen. But, as you also may recall, we learned that Mimi laughed off the fall as it was happening and carried on with the rest of her performance without incident. This week, tho, Mariah returned home to SoCal and was photographed upon arrival at LAX Airport in a wheelchair … prompting the question … why? E! News has the deets:
Mariah Carey, you had us worried. You roll through LAX in a wheelchair yesterday and automatically we start thinking the worst about you and your, um, condition. So what gives? This is what rep Cindi Berger is telling E! News: “Mariah twisted her ankle in Singapore and should have packed more sensible shoes, but she doesn’t have any. I’m sending her a pair of flats today.” Phew. We know it’s wrong to make assumptions based on some suspicious photos but it’s good to hear Carey is going to be OK. Mariah, here’s to a speedy recovery from that darn twisted ankle.
Now, of course, I have no reason to DISBELIEVE what Mimi’s press rep says … but I do think it is very convenient that MC suffered a “fall” last weekend because if she were trying to hide another reason for needing a wheelchair, it is very easy to mask that reason by blaming a sprained ankle. But, I’m really not trying to play conspiracy theorist … mebbe just a little Devil’s Advocate. Whatever the case may be for the need of a wheelchair, I hope Mariah is doing well no matter what is going on.
