Word on the street, literally, is that Mariah Carey’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been vandalized. Of course, not as violently as Donald Trump’s star but still… The vandalism was reported to police on Monday after a photo of the damaged star was posted to Instagram. A blue question mark had been sketched at the end of her name with an ink marker or pen. Mariah…Carey?
It’s safe to say this may not be the best week for the singer. First there’s the botched New Years Eve performance in Times Square and now her star?! Luckily, the Hollywood Historic Trust already took care of the problem- crews removed the question mark and polished her star… fifteen hundred dollars later.
As for the motivation behind the crime? It’s hard to say, but is interesting to note the timing shortly after New Years. TMZ reports that the LAPD is already checking surveillance video to investigate the crime for felony vandalism.
