The 46-year-old’s sibling was detained in Saugerties here by an undercover officer who posed as a man paying for illegal activity, reported the DailyMail.
Alison used Carey’s hits to lure customers and was soon arrested after she advertised her services online.
“I’m a pretty lady looking for guys…” reads the ad and it goes on with an explicit message.
The ad included lyrics from Carey’s 1995 hit “Fantasy”: “But it’s just a sweet fantasy baby, when I close my eyes, you come and you take me, it’s so deep in my daydreams, but it’s just a sweet, sweet fantasy baby.”
Alison is locked up in Ulster County Jail and is due in court on Tuesday, with her bail set at $1,000.
Saugerties Police Chief Joseph Sinagra told The Daily Freeman that the woman identified herself as Mariah Carey’s sister when she was arrested.
According to the Independent, this is Carey’s second arrest on prostitution charges since 2005.
