The pop superstar suggests she had trust issues with her ex throughout they're short marriage a decade ago, because she insisted on paying half of everything and never went anywhere without her cash pocketbook.
She says, "Even though I owned that house, the only thing I felt I owned was my pocketbook.
"He (Mottola) didn't even know why I always had my bag with me. But in my mind I thought, 'If something jumps off, I'm ready.' I lived like that for a long time."
Carey admits that part of her past financial insecurity came from being a poor child who owned nothing.
She adds, "I could never look at something and say, 'I own this.' In this one house, I would sit in this porcelain bathtub and touch it and think, 'Someone actually owns this... Nothing in this house belongs to me.'"29/04/2005 20:03
