(AllHipHop News) One of Mariah Carey’s most famous quotes was her saying “I don’t know her” when the music megastar was asked about Jennifer Lopez.
Murder Inc Records co-founder Irv Gotti may have provided more context to the long-standing feud between the two Pop singers.
While on Desus & Mero, Gotti told a story of how Jennifer Lopez’s hit single “I’m Real (Remix)” featuring Ja Rule came together.
According to Irv, influential industry insider Tommy Mottola was out to hurt his ex-wife Mariah.
“[Mottola] calls me because he found out me and Rule made a record with Mariah Carey. At the time, he hated Mariah Carey, so he was pumping Jennifer Lopez to compete,” revealed Gotti.
The Sony Music Entertainment executive supposedly suggested the Jennifer-Ja duet during that phone conversation.
“Immediately when he said that, I was like, ‘This [expletive]. He knows we just did this sh-t with Mariah and he’s trying to f-ck Mariah,'” said Gotti.
