Mariah Carey's estranged brother is suing her for defamation and the intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Morgan Carey, who is Mariah's older brother, says she damaged his reputation in the memoir she released last year called "The meaning of Mariah Carey".  She wrote about a violent incident he had with her father that took 12 cops to break up.  She also wrote about him pushing her mother against a wall. 

He maintains the passages in the book are false and says he is now worried about his future ability to financially support himself as a result of these claims.
