Mariah Carey Was Paid $1M to Sing Four Songs at Qaddafi Family Bash (Report)
WikiLeaks cables also claim that Beyonce and Usher performed at a family function.
The Qaddafi family paid Mariah Carey $1 million to sing only four songs at a New Year's Day family bash in the Caribbean, according to American diplomatic cables obtained by WikiLeaks, as picked up by the New York Times.
The singer was hired to perform at a New Year's Day 2009 celebration on the island of St. Barts, according to cables documenting the lavish lifestyle of the family.
And she's not the only celebrity who has performed for the family. A year ago, Beyonce and Usher were reportedly hired to sing at another New Year's family celebration in St. Barts.
The revelations come as the Qaddafi family, led by Libyan leader Muammar el-Qaddafi, is currently enmeshed in a bloody struggle to hold on to power in Libya.
