Mariah Carey admitted on Larry King Live that she was emotionally and mentally abused by a former partner.

During her interview, Larry King asked Mariah how she reacted to the news that Rihanna was assaulted by Chris Brown.

“I was very sequestered, as you know, when I first started out… I wasn’t really allowed out of the house, so I can’t imagine what she went through,” Mariah said.

Mariah, who is currently married to Nick Cannon, revealed that she was abused in a previous marriage.

“Emotionally, mentally, in other ways… it’s scary,” Mariah said. “You know, I just think you get into a situation and you feel locked in. If your situation is similar to one of the situations I’ve been in – which I won’t harp on – for me, to really get out, it was difficult because there was a connection that was not only a marriage but a business thing, where the person was in control of my life.”

Mariah was married to legendary Sony Music executive Tommy Mottola from 1993-1997. Mariah stars in Precious, which opens in select theaters this Friday, Nov. 6.  (People)
