American singer Mariah Carey has been sued by her vet over unpaid bills.

The vet has accused the 40-year-old singer of refusing payment for the ‘extraordinary services’ she performed for her three dogs.

Doctor Cindy Bressler said she did over 37,000 dollars of work taking care of Cha-Cha, Dolomite and JJ, but Carey has only paid a part of her bill, according to the papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.

Bressler does house calls in Manhattan and the Hamptons.

She said she took care of the three dogs ‘at the special instance and request’ of the ‘Precious’ star between October 31 and December 2, 2009.

“Bressler rendered veterinary services including extraordinary services to the defendant’s canines,” the paper said.

According to the suit, Bressler “performed work, labor and services on the defendant’s canines at the agreed price and reasonable value of 37,790.32 dollars, which sum Carey agreed to pay.”

But Carey only shelled out 8,231.50 dollars, and refused to give any more even though she never disputed over the rest of the bill, according to the suit, reports The New York Post.

The dogs were reportedly a gift from husband Nick Cannon.

Singer-actress Mariah Carey is in talks to turn her life into a new stage musical.

The “Precious” star is unsure about appearing in the project and wants Brit Leona Lewis to play her on stage, according to reports.

“Mariah secretly likes the idea of Leona Lewis playing her. Not only is she exotic, she’s the only one who they reckon would be able to tackle Mariah’s eight-octave vocal range,” contactmusic.com quoted a source as saying.

Singer-actress Mariah Carey has revealed she is a big fan of Woody Allen and wants to work with the acclaimed filmmaker.

“I’ve never met him, but (Allen’s) ‘Bullets Over Broadway’ is one of my favourite movies ever. I can quote every word. I think it’s amazing,” fashion.ie quoted the singer as saying.

Popstar Mariah Carey is not expecting her first child with husband Nick Cannon.

A spokesperson for the pop star has dismissed the speculation saying there’s “no truth” to the pregnancy reports, said okmagazine.com.

The singer sparked pregnancy speculation at the Independent Spirit Awards in Los Angeles, Friday when she told reporters: “I have a lot of new acting projects coming up… But there’s also something else very special on the way. I can’t say any more.”

Singer-actress Mariah Carey admits that she felt ugly while growing up because of her heritage.

The “Hero” singer, whose mother is an American and her father was an African-American of Venezuelan descent claims that she never fitted in school because of her heritage, leaving her very insecure about the way she looks, reports contactmusic.com.

“I am very insecure about my looks and I always have been because of being mixed race. It is not so weird now but as a child I felt very out of place and didn’t feel pretty,” Mariah said.

Mariah Carey is set to launch her own line of champagne after delivering a tipsy speech at an awards ceremony.

The singer evoked smirks as she took to the microphone after knocking back glasses of bubbly at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on January 6.

The star jokingly laid the blame on Precious director Lee Daniels for the incident.

“We were celebrating and having little splashes, and I hadn”t eaten, and that”s what it was. We were celebrating the movie and all the exciting stuff going on,” Us magazine quoted her as saying at the People”s Choice Awards the next day.

“There”s a time for celebration and a time for not — but really technically, it”s a party atmosphere. We had splashes of champagne. I love Lee, but he’s a bad influence,” she added.

The diva announced on her Twitter page that she will soon come up with her own bottle.

She posted: “Didn”t realize they put the champagne on the tables, So we WOULDN”T drink it! LoL. No, seriously ANGEL CHAMPAGNE (ROSE) by MC coming soon!”

Mariah Carey is reportedly in talks to play the mother of ‘High School Musical’ actress Vanessa Hudgens in a new movie.

According to Showbizspy.com, the 40-year-old singer is set to team up with Hudgens, 21, for a comedy flick based around an ‘X-Factor’ and ‘American Idol’ type show.

“Mariah is eager to capitalize on her acclaimed performance in ”Precious” with another movie,” the New York Daily News quoted a source as telling the Web site.

“There is one project where she would play one half of a mother and daughter singing duo who audition for a TV talent show.

“Vanessa Hudgens has already been approached for the daughter role.

“The only sticking point seems to be whether Mariah feels comfortable playing mom to a teenager. She’’s a little sensitive when it comes to her age,” the source added
