At the press event, where the newly svelte singer was unveiled as the next spokesperson for Jenny (formally Jenny Craig), Mariah cracked, "I'm a real person, I'm not going to put on a fake face for Hollywood ... That's why [my husband and I] aren't divorced after four months."
Of course, Mimi was referring to Kardashian's recent decision to file for divorce from husband Kris Humphries after just 72 days of marriage. Critics have suggested that the made-for-TV relationship and multi-million dollar ceremony were a farce and part of one big publicity stunt.
Mariah's comment allegedly caused the crowd to engage in a collective gasp. Looking sheepish after her crack, Mariah said, "I'm sorry, I'm just saying." Mariah went on to reference her previous marriage to then-manager, music mogul Tommy Mattola. "You know, I had a situation in the past where I was controlled, and I was really young, and it affected the way I trusted people."
While it's unclear what the last comment has to do with her swipe and Kim, we smell a celebrity feud brewing!
