Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez feuding goes back to 1997. Jennifer Lopez was having an affair with Tommy Mottola to jumpstart her career and JLo was used as ammunition to get back at Mariah Carey and give her competition. Also Mariah had albums and songs and cover songs she wanted to released and had recorded but her record label at the time gave her problems and said that JLo wanted to record the same cover songs and MC felt she should have priority as a veteran artist.

Then Glitter got sabotaged thanks to Jennifer Lopez and Tommy Mottola stealing lyrics, samples, songs and material and ideas and having Glitter pushed back and into developmental hell and releasing JLo's projects before Mariah Carey.

Mariah Carey sued and was also able to get out of her SONY/Columbia records deal contract early due to the ongoing incident. Glitter however was a mutual venture and joint project between Mariah Carey, Columbia Records, SONY Records worldwide. Interestingly enough, the areas where SONY kept and held the rights to Glitter sold and performed extrodinarily well and was extremely commercially successful. Glitter was the best selling album and the movie and album both debuted and remained at #1 in Japan.

The media was trying to trash Mariah Carey.

Glitter album has sold somewhere between 3 million to 6 million copies globally. A Mariah Carey flop would be considered an astonishing success for JLo.

Mariah Carey was married to Motolla also. Was it before or after Lopez?

Anyways, this dude was bad news for Sony. He did Michael Jackson wrong and Jackson despised him with a passion.

Mariah Carey was dating Tommy Mottola since 1998. Mariah Carey was legally married to Tommy Mottola from 1993 to 1998.

And Tommy Mottola was not bad news for SONY. Michael Jackson was not innocent. Mottola was a person who knew how to say no and MJ wouldn't listen. Motolla helped MJ own a significant portion of the SONY music and Beatles catalogue.
