The "Touch My Body" hitmaker revealed in an interview published this week that she has been secretly battling bipolar II disorder - which causes a person to experience hypomanic episodes as well as low, depressive ones - since 2001, and has now said she has been "inspired" by the messages of support her fans have been sending her.
Mariah has reportedly called the allegations "baseless". "She's been on and off medication since she was diagnosed".
"Stella pled with Mariah to get sober and she refused".

Around that time, the pop diva's career had suffered a series of bad breaks and sloppy live acts, starting with what could only be called a meltdown during her Dick Clark's 2017 New Year's Rockin' Eve performance.
Talking to People magazine, Mariah explained that while her diagnosis came more than 15 years ago, she didn't seek treatment for the disorder until 2016. "It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn't do that anymore". "I was irritable and in constant fear of letting people down".
"I got back to doing what I love - writing songs and making music", the mother-of-two said.
Bipolar II is said to be hard to diagnose.
"I'm actually taking medication that seems to be pretty good", she said.
Carey's ex-husband, Nick Cannon, reportedly expressed pride that she went public with her condition.
