Mariah Carey’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star vandalized
Mariah Carey’ star on Hollywood Walk of Fame was desecrated over the weekend with a question mark sketched next to her name. The vandalism was reported Monday morning (Jan.9) to police after a photograph of the damaged star appeared on Instagram.
Carey received her star in August 2015. It’s located in front of the W Hollywood Hotel at 6270 Hollywood Boulevard. The Los Angeles Police Department is currently investigating the crime for felony vandalism, as TMZ reports. Ana Martinez, spokeswoman for the Hollywood Walk of Fame, said the repairs will cost $1,500.
The news comes just two days after the “My All” singer announced she was taking a break from social media following her troubling live performance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest.
“I’m going to take a break from media moments, social media moments,” she exclaimed in a video. “Although I’m going to fulfill my professional obligations, this is an important time for me to finally take a moment for myself and to be with my loved ones and prepare for my upcoming tour in March.”
