Mariah Carey is one of the most popular singers ever to grace the world with her melodies. Her soothing voice is no secret to anyone. Even if someone doesn’t know her songs, they relate to her Christmas music. And when someone achieves that level of fame, people are more than interested in their personal lives. One of the most talked about facts in Carey’s life has probably been the men she has dated, including MLB icon Derek Jeter.

One of the interviews in the Mariah Carey archives with the five-time Grammy winner paints her in a new light. At the beginning of her career, Carey was seen as the ‘role model’ and ‘good girl’ type. Even though she later moved away from the image, some traits of that personality stayed with her. When it came to her dating life, she was keen to state that she was not the serial-dater type.

Just because she was linked with various men, including Hollywood ace Leonardo DiCaprio, on a regular basis didn’t mean there was anything serious going on. “From that point they came to conclusions that honestly make me laugh. I’m not the type of girl who passes from one guy to another. I haven’t been with more than three men in my life: Tommy Mottola, Derek Jeter (a baseball player) and Luis Miguel (she lowers her eyes like a little girl),” the article stated.

The Jeter-Carey romance was a sweet one by celebrity standards

Too often, we see stars getting together and splitting up like it’s nothing. The time duration can be significantly long or insignificantly short, but the pressure of the entertainment industry ends up causing harm. Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule, but it doesn’t mean the rule doesn’t exist.

If we were to go by those standards, Jeter and Carey’s relationship was rather short and sweet. While the two may have met when the singer was still married to music executive Tommy Motola, Jeter helped Carey move away from the toxic relationship.
