Mariah Carey's brother has branded her an "evil witch".

The Hero hitmaker has been called "heartless" by her estranged older sibling Morgan Carey, who claims the 45 year-old singer has refused to pay for hospital treatment for their dying sister Alison.

He said: "She probably spends more on dog food than it would cost to make sure her sister gets properly cared for."

Alison - who is HIV-positive and awaiting brain and spinal surgery - fell ill last year, but has never heard from her famous sibling despite "desperately reaching out" numerous times.


Sam Smith shops Egyptian

Sam Smith has bought a collection of Egyptian artefacts.

The Stay with Me hitmaker stopped by the Barakat Gallery in London's Mayfair, which specialises in ancient art, last week to snap up some of the historic objects. he was inspired by Adam Lambert - who has always been obsessed with Egyptian culture - following their meeting in New York.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Adam's passion has rubbed off on Sam. His first tattoo was the Egyptian Eye of Horus, which he got right before American Idol to "protect" him on the show. The first thing Sam did when he got back to the UK was check out the pieces in the gallery."

Rita kneels to Madonna

Rita Ora was forced to kneel before Madonna in order to speak at her best angle during their first encounter.

The 25-year-old pop star first met the legendary singer at a charity concert in London in 2013 and has revealed the unusual circumstances surrounding their conversation, which saw Rita go down on her knees.

The Body On Me singer said: "I was waiting in the room and Madonna walks in with the lighting how major is that? We say hello and then she's like, 'This isn't working, can we just kneel down on the floor?'

So I knelt down and we had the whole conversation because the lighting was better."
