Mariah Carey’s estranged older sister was arrested on a prostitution charge in Saugerties, N.Y., on Friday (Aug. 26).
According to Daily Freeman, Alison Carey was busted for allegedly offering sexual favors to an undercover cop at a hotel. Saugerties Police Chief Joseph Sinagra described Alison as a transient who has been allegedly advertising her services on the Internet from the hotel for about a week.
According to newspaper, the ad featured the line, “ITS SUCH A SWEET,SWEET FANTASY BABY, WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES I COME AND TAKE YOU ON AND ON,” which mimics the lyrics from Mariah’s chart-topping hit, “Fantasy.”
Sinagra also warns that “based on other stories,” there could be cause for concern for people who had sexual relations with Alison, particularly if it was an unprotected and and urged those individuals to contact their physicians.
Mariah and Alison have been estranged for many years.
“Mariah takes care of her entire family and I’m sure this is very painful for her,” an insider told PEOPLE.
Carey was arraigned on prostitution charges and was sent to jail on a $1,000 bail. The 55-year-old is due back in court on Tuesday (Aug. 30).
