Mariah Carey Released From Clinic

Singer Mariah Carey checked herself out of a Connecticut clinic where she was being treated after suffering an emotional breakdown last month, her spokeswoman said.

“MC is feeling better,” Carey’s spokeswoman, Cyndi Berger, told the Daily News in Wednesday’s editions. “She’s under a doctor’s care at an undisclosed location with her mother.”

The 31-year-old Grammy winner canceled all public appearances, including headlining last week’s MTV 20th birthday party, and checked herself into a hospital two weeks ago after suffering “an emotional and physical breakdown,” Berger said.

Just before her hospitalization, Carey left two messages on her official Web site complaining of being overworked and getting too little attention from her new record label. She also made a surreal appearance on MTV’s “Total Request Live” dressed in little more than a T-shirt and pushing an ice cream cart filled with Popsicles for the audience.

Despite having had bandages on both wrists after going to an emergency room July 25, Carey has not attempted suicide, Berger said. She said Carey had broken some dishes and glasses.

Carey’s new movie, “Glitter,” in which she plays an aspiring singer, has been rescheduled for release on Sept. 21; a one-month delay was announced Monday. Carey’s new album, also titled “Glitter,” is scheduled for release Aug. 21.
