Mariah Carey

Diplomatic cables revealed by WikiLeaks show that Libyan leader Muammar el-Qaddafi’s son paid Mariah Carey $1 million for a performance in St. Barts.

The cables also note that another of Qaddafi’s sons held a similarly lavish New Year’s party in 2010, paying singers Beyonce and Usher an undisclosed amount for  their performances.

The New York Times reports:

After New Year’s Day 2009, Western media reported that Seif al-Islam el-Qaddafi, a son of the Libyan leader Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, had paid Mariah Carey $1 million to sing just four songs at a bash on the Caribbean island of St. Barts.

Muatassim had repeated his St. Barts New Year’s fest, this time hiring the pop singers Beyoncé and Usher. An unnamed “local political observer” in Tripoli told American diplomats that Muatassim’s “carousing and extravagance angered some locals, who viewed his activities as impious and embarrassing to the nation.”
